I have been working at AMC Entertainment full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

They give a crap about their people (depending on the theater). There is plenty of room to move up in the company if you're good enough. It's a ton of fun. Free movies and free popcorn/soda when you're at work.

Cons

Not very good pay (barely make above min wage depending on your location). Sometimes you work really, really long days. Most of the time you have to work holidays. Not very good health benefits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep Tri-City 8 open.

    Former Employee - Concessions/Usher/Box Office/Projection in Woodbridge, VA

    I worked at AMC Entertainment part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Free movies for you, family, and friends when space in theatre allows for it (not allowed during Special Engagements)
    - Not stressful and slow during the weekdays (and non-summer months)
    - Usher and Projection are less stressful positions

    Cons

    - VERY LOW PAY for Supervisors, Managers, and Operations Coordinators
    - Extremely stressful and busy during the summer months
    - Concessions and Box Office are more stressful positions (if you are short on your register 2 times, you will be fired, no exceptions)
    - Angry customers at all aspects of the job, complaints about ticket/food prices, customer service
    - Employees are no longer allowed to specialize in one aspect of the movie theater business (i.e. Concessions, Usher, Box Office, Projection), you are required to work a minimum of one shift in concession per week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Stop treating employees like slaves
    - Most employees are in high school or in college, allow for flexibility with requesting days off
    - Management blames employees for everything that goes wrong and normally fires crew members promptly (high turnover with employees)

    I worked at AMC Entertainment full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    learn a lot about managing and the business... great people to work with... the most rewarding part is the free movies since theyre so expensive.

    Cons

    Very cheap company to work for... raises are hard to come by... Lots of politics within the market to move up really. You have to know the right general manager on the talent board in order to move up where you want to be but sometimes thats even hard. They hire you for the market so they can move you to a diff theatre without any regards to what you want

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay accordingly and take care of the staff so that they can take care of their guests and dont think about leaving
