    Pros

    Managers tend to be younger, also tend to have worked their own way up from usher, box office, etc. Work itself is fair, sometimes you'll work longer hours but it's never more than you can handle.

    Cons

    Minimum wage but what do you expect. Kid movies will kick your butt with so much spilled popcorn and slushie.

    Advice to Management

    Keep sticking up for your employees and they'll take care of you.


  3. Active but low-paying job

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

    Pros

    Free popcorn and drinks during your breaks and free movies. Very active work and the managers were pretty cool people for the most part. Many different departments to work in and plenty of room to grow. You get to cook things and get the occasional movie break if the theater isn't busy.

    Cons

    Low pay and pretty bad hours. Working in a department where you are constantly interacting with customers can be very exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more opportunity to work in different departments.

    I worked at Cinemark part-time

    Pros

    Good first job. The mangers are generally really good about trying to work with you with scheduling. You also get to see the movies free.

    Cons

    Movie theaters are opened every day of the year including every holiday, which are some of the busiest days of the year. Expect to have to work your share of holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to treat your employees with respect and work on training the new employees on how to do their jobs correctly.

    A great company to work for with great benefits. A really good first job. They will work with your schedule and don't expect much past experience.

    The night shifts are very long and you may have to stay very late. You are on your feet all day so it can be tiring

    Pros

    Good environment. Good, usually caring, managers. Relatively easy job. Free passes to movies. I, personally, made a lot of friends working there.

    Cons

    Sometimes very long shifts. Difficult customers. Higher ups in the company don't seem to care much about employees. Cleaning up after movies can be gross.

    I have been working at Cinemark part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free movies Free popcorn/soda while you work Selling tickets is pretty easy Scheduling is extremely flexible Discounts on food while you work

    Cons

    High stress level situations Getting shifts covered is tedious Lack of employee appreciation Constantly on your feet Management does not respect availability occasionally

    Advice to Management

    If on someone's availability it says they not be available, don't schedule them. It doesn't matter if they have a school break during that time frame and you think they won't be busy. The keys words in that word in the sentence is "think."
