    Pros

    Free tickets. Able to watch movies for free. Can't beat it. especially for someone that would watch anything.

    Cons

    Overall, no bad experiences. No raise but it was a part time job and the free movies made up for it.

    I worked at AMC Entertainment full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    As long as you do your job and show up on time you won't have any problems. Your hard work will be noted and praised by management. Free movies and early screening. Discount on food while working. Great atmosphere for movie lovers. This is a perfect first time job for students and young professionals.

    Cons

    Popcorn smell will become very annoying. You will probably encounter every type of bad customer possible. Raises are minimal.

    I worked at AMC Entertainment

    Pros

    You get free movies, free popcorn and drinks while on break, and a free Stubs Card. It's a fairly simple job, and can be fun most of the time.

    Cons

    Some super late nights, rude customers, and not a very flexible work schedule (in my opinion).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time helping employees and taking care of customers instead of sitting at guest services talking about last nights party. It looks bad on everyone.

    They preach AMC Culture to you to the point that it feels like you are in a cult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monitor the GM's more closely because some of them get a God complex

    Former Employee - Film Crew Member in Coon Rapids, MN

    I worked at AMC Entertainment part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling was offered and was important to me as a high school student. Most of my co-workers were also in high school, which made it easier to transition into the job. The management was friendly and always was available to talk about any issues. I was kept busy by the job, as my theater constantly had many guests.

    Cons

    Because the theater was busy all the time, the job could become stressful to keep up. There was constant standing, and I would often have sore feet at the end of a shift. Time and a half doesn't exist although being available on holidays was mostly expected.

    I worked at AMC Entertainment full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very collaborative work environment, where co-workers are smart, fun, and friendly (most of the time). Perks are great with the free annual movie passes for yourself and family! Worklife balance is very good.

    Cons

    Not very clearly defined goals sometimes by upper management. Somewhat reactive vs. being proactive and planning for long-term. Departments are somewhat siloed at times. Also, if you are focused on career growth, you will need to push this yourself, not very good mentoring programs at corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote better inter-department communication to allow more insight into goals and priorities across departments.

    I worked at AMC Entertainment part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free movies, all around young atmosphere, very flexible hours, a good amount of employees working at once.

    Cons

    MAJOR hour decrease and cap.
    On-Call shifts. You could be scheduled for a theoretical six hour shift that takes calling an hour or two ahead of time to confirm the shift.
    Closing shifts could have you closing up until 4 AM on big movie nights.
