    I worked at AMC Entertainment part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Watch free movies!
    Discount on some foods.
    Get trained in many areas - concession, box office, ticket-taking, ushering.
    Meet lots of different people.

    Cons

    Where you're working - concession, box office etc. - is up to whoever is in charge of scheduling, so you can get stuck working concession stand for months.
    You have to pitch AMC's Stub card in every sales transaction - no commission.
    You sometimes work understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keeping theater's well-staffed is positive for workers, customers, and management.

    Former Employee - Film Crew in Danville, IL

    I worked at AMC Entertainment part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Loved coworkers, fun friendly sales competitions, good training, free movies. My manager would sometimes offer a challenge to the concession workers, like "whoever sells the most nachos by the end of the set wins an ice cream of their choice." I loved that sort of fun competition.

    Cons

    Expect to stay really late if you close, especially concessions. I absolutely dreaded closing consessions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up! (but don't schedule 3 closing shifts in a row)
