    I have been working at AMC Entertainment part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -They use a very effective Workbrain System for clocking in/out, requesting days off, and sending messages to managers. You can easily send a day off request from your home computer. Most other jobs would force you to make the requests in person or handwritten on a board!

    -Obviously, the free movies. This is an amazing benefit and I try to see at least 2 a week to keep myself educated on current releases and to improve my writing quality.

    -Good co-workers. AMC hires people that are friendly and intelligent, and it shows when we are working together or just conversing during a slow period.

    -Free popcorn and soda when you work + discounts on just about every food item. (They even have discounts on candy and ice cream now... back in 2005 they did not!)

    -Based on AMC surveys, we can also get free food/discount food when we're not even working, and our theater has been hitting those goals more often than not.

    -While the hours are not always enough lately, if you work hard, they will make an effort to give you as many hours as they can.

    -Some people don't enjoy it, but I enjoy the challenge of selling people Stubs.

    Cons

    -From what I was told, they no longer offer commission for achieving high sales numbers. In my first stint here in 2005-07, if someone made $2000+ (concession) or $10,000+ (Box Office), they would get something like a 1% commission... it would end up being $20-$30 added to a daily shift, so 4 hours of work or so. But that is no longer around.

    -The "crew bucks" have some decent bonuses but they are rather limited in how they can be used.

    -You get minimum wage and they no longer offer raises for learning new tasks like Concession or Box Office. Raises only come through the six-month evaluations that employees receive.

    -Some guests can be rude, and others are a bit too polite. They may have no interest in Stubs whatsoever, but will let you go through your whole sales technique before declining the offer.

    -We are limited to 28 hrs average (weekly) per month... so you might get 35-40 hrs a week on a holiday week, but then only 2 or 3 short shifts when it's a slow week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back some form of cash-based commission, not just the crew bucks.
