I have been working at Cinemark full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
Free movies, discounted products, 401k for employees employed at least a year, flexible hours, and some hilarious stories.
Great for part time work for high school/college students.Cons
Low pay for management, conflicts of interests, and petty politics.
Assistant Managers get the shaft just about every time. AMs have all of the responsibility and none of the compensation.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Pay managers more, or give better incentives to preform well. The majority of assistant managers are just using Cinemark for training, and resume building opportunities only to quit and move somewhere else.
Consider actually enforcing a no-fraternization rule between GMs, AMs, and employees.RecommendsNegative OutlookApproves of CEO

- Application Details
I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Cinemark in December 2014.Interview Details
I went online originally to fill out an application. The instructions online said to take the application to the location we were applying to (there was no online application available.) When I dropped off the application, the employee said that someone would be calling me within a week. Two weeks later, I got a call asking me to come in for an interview. The interview was very simple (tell me about yourself, do you think you can meet the job requirements, do you mind cleaning/breaking a sweat, can you fulfill dress code requirements, ect.), and took about 20 minutes. At the end, the managers told me that they would call me at the end of the day if I got a job. That evening, I received an offer, and was instructed to come in to fill out the final paperwork and make copies of my identification.Interview Questions
Negotiation DetailsI was unable to negotiate. Actually, they have yet to tell me how much I am making. However, I have friends who work at this location and have told me that starting is minimum wage, so I am assuming that to be true.Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
