Cinemark is an awful place to work unless you are 16 or 17 years old.

I have been working at Cinemark

Pros

Flexible schedule and The free movies, it's an easy job and you have a fun time making friends with co-workers

Cons

Management is incompetent. Most are unqualified for their positions and they break many rules and don't respect the employees. They will stand in the middle of the lobby on a busy day chatting instead of helping. They don't reward employees for a job well done and pick favorites based on personality alone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Respect the employees more, reward them for a job well done and have a more thorough interview process so you don't hire incompetent managers

    I worked at Cinemark

    Pros

    Decent perks - free movies means you can see everything that comes out for no cost
    Good starting salary
    Flexible hours
    Relatively enjoyable workplace culture
    Diverse workplace

    Cons

    Management above the theater level abusive and incompetent
    Little opportunity to advance
    Theater management expected to sign their lives over to the company
    Rampant favoritism
    Theater is open 365 days a year, means a good chance you'll work holidays
    Archaic policies and rules

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect the non-corporate employees working for your company. Just because this is someone's college job doesn't make them incompetent, criminals, or worthy of abuse. Eliminate "audits" that grind workplace productivity to a halt as employees scramble to make sure that nitpcky criteria are met. Don't expect employees making a few dollars above minimum wage to sign away their lives to the company in the hope that they might advance to a better position. Stop favoritism that permits workplace abuse to occur.

    Retail mentality. Culture stuck in the 70s.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer stock options to employees & managers. Foster an 'ownership' mentality.
