    Pros

    The free movies were great and management were nice. It is a great first job seeing as you can learn a lot from them.

    Cons

    The biggest problem was that you were lucky to hat holidays off and there were no holiday pay. That is all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They can only do so much but corporate should at least give supervisors extra pay on holidays.

  9. It's an easy job for those who can handle large crowds and a few rude guests.

    I worked at AMC Entertainment (more than a year)

    Pros

    If you enjoy the movie going experience or a big film buff, you will love the unlimited free movies. I worked with a few excellent individuals who helped make the shift go by quicker.

    Cons

    You make minimum wage and will never receive full time hours if you're film crew. They will write you up over anything like not having black shoe laces.

  10. Great people to work with, sometimes problems with management
