    Pros

    - Great People
    - Lots of opportunity to move up
    - Like a family company
    - Opportunity to build on skills
    - loads of employee events and incentives ( free movies for 2 and regular size popcorn )
    - Work schedule is so flexible that you can trade,give or take shifts with ease ( depending on which location you work at and how many employees are employed at that location )

    As I currently work for Cineplex Entertainment I can honestly say its one of the best part-time jobs out there with lots of growth for opportunity. Unless your looking for a above minimum wage job you won't go wrong with Cineplex.

    Cons

    - Pay, it's low ( minimum wage ) so don't expect to get a high paying job from the company until you starting heading into management
    - If your not social or have strong communication skills you won't fit in unless you work on those skills as you go along

    Advice to Management

    Management does need to pay a little more attention to who gets hired and what kind of situations are going on with cast members as sometimes internal affairs with cast members can get of control affecting the whole team.

    Always recognize the hard workers because there the ones you want to keep!

    Pros

    Pay cheque, Free movies, somewhat easy going environment.

    Cons

    Overly annoying managers, no one cares about what actually matters.
    A lot of the time the managers are useless and make changes that make things worse.
    I've had an ongoing experience with this company and a few different locations and my hatred for working here keeps increasing.
    I could go on for hours about this.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like humans, don't make up bullsh*t excuses, don't schedule 2 people to close on a friday night and get mad when nothing gets done properly.

    Pros

    Cineplex is good for a first job, free movies, good food discount, small commission on combos, opportunities for cross training.

    Cons

    Working at Cineplex is a bottom of the barrel first job. No respect from management, terrible work environment and undervalued for what you do.

    Advice to Management

    Open your doors, accept suggestions from cast members. Enforce the policies you put in the place and reward those doing well..

    Pros

    supportive team and managers. Once you get used to the job, it's a breeze. You can take additional shifts from others if they are busy, so you can get in more hours. You can ask to get trained in different areas.

    Cons

    It can get very busy at times and guests start getting impatient. Thus, irritability and annoyance. They cut your shifts at time so lesser money you get. Sometimes the pay doesn't seem appropriate for the work you put in.

    Pros

    People are great, free movies every payday and 1/2 off hot foods during shifts. Free popcorn and pop during shifts.

    Cons

    Minimum wage jobs, haven't offered a raise in 2 years (as of March 2015). Team leader gets paid .50$ more then cast member and Asst. Mgr gets .50$ more then that.

    Advice to Management

    Be open an honest to employees. Secrecy just creates anomisity and impatience with the job. Recognition goes a long way.
