    I have been working at AMC Entertainment full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The HQ is awesome
    I feel like I contribute to my team, and my work is appreciated

    Cons

    Lots of politics involved to get anything done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More training would be great; you tend to learn the processes as you go instead of them being defined in the beginning

    it was fun for a part time, flexible schedule while in college

    Former Employee - Film Crew Lead in Riverside, CA
    Former Employee - Film Crew Lead in Riverside, CA

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

    Pros

    free movies
    early screenings
    got paid to watch "screen" the movie before it came out
    short shifts ideal for my school schedule
    meet lots of cool people
    i saw a lot of people get promoted and are still working there.
    if you put in time, you can see the pay off but i was only there part time

    Cons

    low pay minimum wage
    had to work most weekends/holidays
    while I was there you could not be creative with hairstyle
    uniform is pretty bland
    had to cover up tattoos and remove piercings even if they were not excessive

    Pros

    Free movies
    Good work conditions
    Rewards you for good service / effort

    Cons

    There is some obvious stratification between the management and the crew members, but that's what comes with a job mostly taken by local high schoolers.

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

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

    Pros

    The schedule was flexible (great as a high school student at the time) and the work environment was quite friendly. Additionally, the management promptly responded to any issues.

    Cons

    Job can get boring at times, but that comes with the territory.
    Very corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about rewarding your top performers with increases in compensation.

    I have been working at AMC Entertainment full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The theater I worked at didn't have much growth unless you were all over the managers. But i enjoyed the people I've worked with.

    Cons

    The managers like to have your own peers micro manage you. I knew some of the best workers there that spent majority of their time picking up shifts and working hard and were never promoted. Instead those who spent time sucking up got the promotion. But I am grateful for the experience.
