    Pros

    Friendly crew. Free movies. Work all the hours you want. Free food at the end of the night.

    Cons

    There are some rude customers and you kinda just have to take it. Its a hard reality and a sad truth.

    Pros

    Fun place to work! Great contests for crew members. All crew can see free movies. AMC listens to the crews ideas and puts ideas into action if they prove to improve the workplace.

    Cons

    The hours are late and all over the place. It could be hard on a famiy with late hours and holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Team work is the key. If management includes the crew on goals they have and regularly update them then the crew meets the goals.

    Pros

    Very easy to get promoted from within. Great place to learn and get experience

    Cons

    Pay is minimum for what managers have to put up with. Being open 365 days a year sucks as well.

    Pros

    fun job that allows you to build a great relationship with your coworkers, and who doesn't love free movies? I enjoyed the early access screenings the most.

    Cons

    what kind of employers force their employees to have open availability on the weekend, which could include working until 2am, and then only pay them minimum wage? a 10 cent raise is embarrassing
