    The best and worst experience ever.

    I worked at AMC Dine-In Theatres

    Pros

    Free movies, fun environment. You will make friends here that you will never forget.

    Cons

    Management shows favoritism, very inconsistent, when I moved up to supervisor my general manager told me to stop acting like a pawn on a chess board. Her reason was I was working to hard. When you become apart of the management team its mandatory that you cut all ties with the friends you made because AMC policy fits not allow crew members and upper management to socialize outside of work and barely while you are at work as well. Oh don't mess around and get places on ROE I literally sat on conversations hearing management plot on how that were going to fire a particular employee, just a sad place and stressful place to work, management has no and I mean NO RESPECT for the people that are not on the same level as them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management, if you treat your employees right things would work out much smoother for you all, do not let your title of manager or senior manager or general manager get the best of your ego, it means nothing when it's all said and done. I hate that I left you all hanging like I did but it had to be done to prove a point and from
    What I hear nothing has changed. You have to give respect to get it, remember that always!!!!

    Pros

    Laid back job with perks such as unlimited free movies and snacks while working. Cool management who is fun to work with. I also practically wrote my schedule.

    Cons

    Terrible pay: just barely above minimum wage. Management pushes employees to sell lots of AMC Stubs Cards.

    Pros

    My co-workers were the best people I could have ever met. I am blessed to have gotten an opportunity to work with them.
    The tips were decent.
    Being able to watch a movie for free at AMC saves a lot of money.

    Cons

    There were often scheduling conflicts that took too long to resolve. Day off requests were often not approved even though they were submitted 3 weeks in advance.
    Servers were required to up-sell the STUBS loyalty program. Servers who sold more of the STUBS were given better sections in the theaters.
    Servers had to follow a script. If the script was not followed exactly and management found out, the server was reprimanded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to understand the restaurant aspect of the Dine-In Theater experience as opposed to just focusing on the theater aspect.

    I have been working at AMC Dine-In Theatres

    Pros

    -Free movies
    -half off food (oh wait that's only when you are WORKING, darn)
    -Great on resume for people pursuing the film industry
    That's about all folks!

    Cons

    Sheesh, where do I begin?

    -OVERWORKED; we literally work for every penny we make
    -Shifts not promised. Oh you found out you have 4 shifts this week and you're so stoked because this means more tips for you! Wrong. If AMC is slow; they cut. Usually when this happens, it gets busy right after. So guess what? Then we're understaffed & overworked.
    -We hire a crap load of servers (too many!) but not enough runners nor bussers yet we tip them out when most times we are running our own trays to guests
    -Management sucks. I almost cursed but I'm trying to keep this professional. Management does not care about employees. I am blessed to have an amazing GM. But management is truly so caught up in their feelings. Buncha sensitives! Takes everything personally. You can't voice your concerns without them trying to defend it.
    -Pay. We are based off of tips. If we are understaffed guess what this means? Our guests are unhappy. What happens if our guests are unhappy? We don't get tipped. Bingo! Thanks AMC

    Honestly... You may ask, well girl why are still working there? I don't even know! I love film so much and it's where my career is headed so that answers some of that. Plus I'm in school so it works. I have hope for AMC; I just think it's needs a complete makeover - meaning fire the bad. Even if that's the main BOSS. We need someone who cares about the employees working their butts off & who hires quality people. WE make smiles happen; but we can't if YOU can't make our smiles happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Complete 360; fix the whole darn team. Stop renovating theaters and invest in quality people to guide these theaters.

    Pros

    The flexibility of the work schedule is great, people are always eager to pick up or drop unwanted shifts

    Management doesn't really seem to care about individual servers and do little in the face of server feedback.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employee's and care about them not just yes them

    Pros

    Free movies, free popcorn and courtesy sized cup of soda or icee, flexible work schedule, discounts on hot foods, easy work, easy to make friends, nice managers, and nice supervisors.

    Cons

    Low pay, not enough hours, weird shift hours, unfair promotions, limit on amount of people that can go to free movies with you, and sometimes the managers don't care about issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not promote based off favorite employees because it is unfair for the workers that work there longer and work harder.

    Believe in making guests smile, but they don't care about the quality of life of their crew.

    Friendly crew members who believe in making smiles happen.

    Cons

    Crazy hours management makes you work and they don't care if you have time to rest between shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If your crew has a quality of life they are better able to ensure guest happiness!

    Pros

    Not a lot. I have many years as a manager from outside the company and feel like I am regressing.

    Cons

    The hours and the shifts, the upper management, no true leadership, can't keep things working, toxic work enviroment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support the staff that guest facing they are the most important to the business not your politics and extreme lack of true leadership.
