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

    Former Employee - Usher, Cashier, Box Office Associate in Anchorage, AK

    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.

  8. Five years of employment

    I have been working at Cinemark full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.

    I worked at Cinemark

    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.

    Pros

    Love the caring management
    Flexible schedule
    Entry level
    Customers are usually kind

    Cons

    Uniforms
    If you're not careful you could burn yourself
    If something breaks, forget about talking to corporate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, all you managers. You are the greatest. Corporate could afford to listen to their branches more often.

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

    Pros

    Free movies for you and another person any time, free popcorn and drinks (ICEE/Soda), and 50% off concessions items.

    Cons

    Stressful work environment. Busy days can keep you on your feet and moving your whole shift - also expect to deal with some rude and difficult costumers.

    If you are 18 years or older, unless worked out with the scheduling manager, expect to close at times which can mean staying till 12 - 3AM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow tips and pay employees better.
