    I worked at Cinemark full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Free Movies! Free Popcorn and Soda! Discount Candy!

    Cons

    Goodbye life! Do not expect to have any sort of work life balance. In addition, the GM's are overworked and take it out on the AM's. Corporate talks a big game about caring about their employees but the truth is that company is a revolving door that could care less about retention. Regardless of multiple complaints to the District Manager, nothing was done about blatant mishandling of business...but can you blame the GMs? They're all underpaid and undertrained and have to answer a billion emails a day all contradicting each other. Hitler's 3rd Reich was better organized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hey upper management - Look at companies who ACTUALLY take care of their employees and maybe follow suit!

  9. I worked for at a Cinemark Century 16 Theater for about a year as a part-tim usher/box office associate.

    I worked at Cinemark part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The best part about this job was probably my coworkers- there were rarely any instances of inner conflict, and we all got along very well. My managers in particular were incredibly friendly and helpful, and the promotion rate from usher to management was pretty frequent. Free movies and popcorn were great, too.

    Cons

    The customers mostly. Lots of messy, entitled people, and of course the under 16 crowd who thought they were super clever trying to sneak into R-rated movies.
    Also, if you're consistently accurate with your till and cash-handling you pretty much get stuck on cashier/box office duty which is not as mobile as the usher work and more monotonous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There were some instances where new employees weren't properly trained, or given to other inexperienced workers to train, so maybe a bit more structure in that regard.

  10. Five years of employment

    Pros

    Great relationships with staff. Movie environment is great. Free movies.

    Cons

    I have been an assistant manager for the past 1 year and I haven't received a raise since. I make $10.25....many floor staff members with very little experience make nearly the same wage as me. To say Cinemark is cheap would be a gross understatement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work hard and demand your raise.

  11. Like working at a high school for pennies.

    Pros

    Made great friends. Free popcorn and movies.

    Cons

    Horrible pay (barely more than MINIMUM wage as a manager). Horrible and rude patrons. No upper management support. Never allowed to take lunch. Insane hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better, schedule better.
