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

Pros

The free movies. No question. The hours are pretty flexible for high school and college age students as well.

Cons

Don't expect to get promoted (unless you are a really good at puckering up). Even if you have an idea that could potentially save the company thousands (if not hundreds of thousands) of dollars a year...no one cares. No one listens. Even if you're in management...no one cares. Only GMs have power. There are no checks and balances. Their word is law and no one ever questions them as long as the financial numbers are positive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Care more about the people who actually run your company. Not the GMs, not the managers, the film crew. They are the backbone of your company, but yet they are ignored in favor of GMs (some of which are vulgar, vile and corrupt) simply because the GM is assumed to be the person who should know best.

    I worked at AMC Entertainment part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Free movies for you and your family members. Co-workers were helpful and friendly. Most of the supervisors were friendly and appreciative of your hard work.

    Cons

    Working long hours, especially during busy movie premiers. Customers can be impatient and rude, but it's nothing you wouldn't find anywhere else.
