    Pros

    Great part-time job for students starting out looking for a job. Most of your coworkers are young. Great benefits (movie tickets)

    Cons

    Poor management. Not many hours since there are so many people employed. When it is down time, there is not much to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to schedule people when they are available. Not on the days they've booked off.

    Pros

    Great working environment. Free movies, cast popcorn and drinks. It a really great place for a starter job as you learn/experience both retail and customer service.

    Cons

    A good place for a starter job but very little space for career growth. The pay is way too little compare to amount of work we do.

    I have been working at Cineplex Entertainment part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good perks, friendly staff, pay stubs and time off are all done online

    Cons

    The till layout is very hard to master, especially if you've been trained on a till at another company. The training goes a bit too quickly and you're thrown into your first shift very fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more in depth! Make training 3 in class sessions and 5 hands on sessions!

    I worked at Cineplex Entertainment full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free movies, free drinks during shift

    Cons

    I went through a month-long hiring process and was hired as a manager at Scotiabank Montreal. After the first week, my trainer went on vacation and nobody followed through on training me. After about 3 weeks was let go for "lack of enthousiasm" despite the fact that I did my best to learn on my own from the team leaders. Was told the GM is afraid of women. Catty, back-stabbing environment. Was told I was not enthousiastic for not taking notes, despite the fact that everyone saw me carry a notebook everywhere. Just awful. Huge egos and I was judged negatively from the start. DO NOT APPLY FOR A MANAGEMENT JOB. THERE IS A REASON WHY THEY ARE SO SHORT STAFFED.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have a problem with someone, the professional thing to do is address it early and to somebody's face so that it can be fixed.
