    If you work hard as a Team Member, you are not always promoted.

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

    Pros

    Depends on the theater, but ours gave one free movie a day with another person. Great perk. Also if you were one to close concessions, you got to take home the popcorn.

    Cons

    At my location, raises were only $0.10 each time. Even during high school that was not great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you care about your employees, treat them that way.

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

    Pros

    I worked there several years ago, so things might've changed somewhat, but the free movies, free drinks and popcorn on shift, and the people I directly worked with were what made my time there better. Fast-paced work, ALWAYS moving, but some real madhattery happened whist I was there. Oh, and giveaway posters were a plus

    Cons

    Management can be somewhat out of touch at times. They still run a tight ship but could loosen up here and there, on the smaller issues. Also, lack of business at times will cut into hours, and thus, paychecks. The rush can be insane on opening weekends

    It was fine.

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

    Pros

    You get paid. The job is easy and the hours are flexible. You can see free movies. Generally work with good people.

    Cons

    You don't get paid much. It's a customer service job, so you have to deal with a lot of short tempered people and children.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that very few people see this job as an actual career, and therefore aren't going to put a lot of effort into it for advancement opportunities. Give perks for effort instead.

    Pros

    Great amenities, free movies, free popcorn and soda. A perfect high school, first time job! At times we were even paid to screen movies.

    Cons

    The job can get pretty dirty. And we did not get new shirts that often which is unfortunate due to the filth we had to clean up sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They were actually pretty nice, I really enjoyed working here.
