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

    Pros

    -free movies
    -very cool coworkers
    -flexible hours
    -comfy uniforms
    -lots of different areas to work so you're not doing the same thing every single day

    Cons

    -Last hours, some nights I won't be out until 12:45
    -really low pay, they only give raises right before minimum wage goes up so all your 25 cent increases become obsolete

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe show cast members that you appreciate them, and thank the ones that work hard rather than using only negative reinforcement.

    Nice coworkers and supervisors

    Cons

    Management will yell at workers in the areas where guest are
    Everything is timed including washrooms!
    Management dosen't care about you. I got my 5$ birthday gift card from them in April, but my birthday was in January
    Made me work through holidays

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to actually care about cast members because they feel unappreciate.

    Pros

    Unlimited movies for you and a friend

    Cons

    People pleasing hundreds of people a day for minimum wage... Oh, say good-bye to your social life because the shifts given are usually evenings, weekends and holidays. More than likely you will won't get Christmas, New years eve off if you request it.
    Very tedious work, and high demands to be fast yet be every where at once. Management: "how come your till isn't clean?" well, we just had a huge rush
    Not to mention, a lot of the management had favorites,

    I worked at Cineplex Entertainment

    Pros

    Great People
    Flexible Schedule - accommodating

    Cons

    Shifts that went late due to the screening times of the movies. Management cannot change this as it is a head office thing. and Hence, it is not their fault.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    I worked at Cineplex Entertainment part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cineplex theatres, in my experience, have a good work environment and friendly people. The free movies benefit is great, and they also offer a $250 per-term scholarship if you are in university or community college.

    Cons

    The opportunities for advancement are quite limited, and the compensation is not good. The job is also not particularly enjoyable unless you make it so, which is not something everyone can do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Giving a raise now and then would go pretty far for your dime

    Pros

    Unlimited free movie passes for you and a friend (as long as you bring 2 non perishable items for the food bank)
    Work with young people that are around the same age as you

    Cons

    Late nights, sometimes won't get home until 12am and then school the next morning
    My black pants took like 7 washes to finally get the smell of popcorn out of them
    They hire anyone, sometimes you end up working with crappy co-workers
