    I worked at AMC Entertainment full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Atmosphere, fellow employees, constantly busy, fast paced environment, fun place to work for a short amount of time

    Cons

    No vacation time sick or maternity leave offered to non salary employees, crazy hours and very high turn over rates when the kids go back to school

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if you offered maternity leave or sick time and vacation pay to employees who have worked with the company for years but aren't salary

    I have been working at AMC Entertainment part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free movies for all employees, co-workers get along very well. Very slow during the school season, usually you have long breaks during the weekday, but weekend it will pick up a little.

    Cons

    Usually have to be available on weekends to work, scheduling can be a little out your time you managed. It's mainly a job for someone who can work like afternoon to night shifts during the weekday and anytime of the day on Saturday and Sunday, including holidays.

    Former Employee - Usher/Greeter/Concession/Box-office in Saratoga, CA

    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)
