Approves of CEO

I worked at AMC Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Free movies (as long as its not opening weekend or sold out) Its a good part-time job not a full-time If you want money, you never have to worry about hours, especially if they see you're a reliable worker You meet celebrities, they love the movies If you have nice co-workers, you'll be fine

Cons

To get a promotion you have to suck up to all the supervisors and managers. Minimum wage: 7.25, sometimes its not worth it will the labor you do You have to make you own to make it though the day and we did. It was the only thing that made it enjoyable. Upselling and suggestive selling...it's a little difficult to sell bigger popcorn or larger drinks when the majority of the people who go to your theatre are skinny Caucasians who are always on a diet. You have to make sure the supervisors and managers like you, and the only way to make sure of that is making conversation and joking with them. There's some favoritism amongst some managers.

Advice to Management

You need to raise the wages even if is $.50 and a $.15 raise every six months is not a lot for the stuff we have to do and the long hours. Supervisors are a lot cooler with the film crew than the GM. I feel the GM should be nicer to the film crew, because just because the economy is bad doesn't mean we need you more than you need us. Also there are some managers that shouldn't do the hiring, cause the ones who do hire people that get fired or are the laziest. The CEO is really cool, its the GM and mangers who a little of the wagon.

  1. Fun place to work, but very demanding with very few hours to start.

    Pros

    Free movies, half price food when working, lots of popcorn, a lot of opportunities to go further in the company. A lot of hands on experience and a great sense of community.

    Cons

    When it's busy it's crazy, training isn't all that extensive--you really learn by doing here, you don't get very many hours, having to constantly up-sell is frustrating to you and your customers.

    Advice to Management

    There is a sense of "sink or swim" that isn't exactly friendly. It would be great if there were more guided hands on assistance before being thrown out there totally.


  2. Long Hours babysitting high school kids
