I worked at Cinemark

Pros

easy job
free movies and popcorn
most coworkers are cool
some managers are alright
simple time punch in
custodians are great to speak with they know everything

Cons

if you close you have to clean up
few coworkers are back stabbers
managers are mostly kids
some customers can be a total pain in the neck
running to the back to check the sodas or get more popcorn seeds can be time consuming

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Using the friend system in a business really isn't the smartest thing to do what kind of a business is based off of a management where a bunch of kids that are best friends help there friends go up the ladder and all none friends get fired?

    Pros

    Cinemark in Valley View, OH really works with college kids and people with second jobs and their ever changing schedules. There is a family feel to this location and all employees are treated with the utmost respect. Movies are free to employees and their guests and management is very good with allowing additional tickets and rewarding the staff for a job well done. There are constant contests within departments in which you can win great prizes and the Christmas party is awesome.

    Cons

    You will not get rich working for Cinemark. Floor staff employees have a maximum houlry wage of $8.70. The management staff makes around $10-$12 per hour for putting up with a lot of hardship. At times the job seems thankless because the amount of work you do always outweighs your compensations, but again, the people you will work with here make it worth while on a personal level. The biggest issue with Cinemark is that it is such a large company that the corporate office is always on different pages with one another. You will be instructed to do the same thing differently by different people and both will get upset when you don't do it their way. Also, you will be lucky if anyone in the corporate office EVER responds to you when you send them messages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The corporate office needs this advice: Remember that the people in the theaters are the ones making it happen. We ensure that you get your large salaries.

    You are not paid enough for what you have to deal with, costumers and management.

    I worked at Cinemark

    Pros

    Because it is not a corporate job, you are allowed to ask off and work hours that you put in. You can work whenever you want and you do not have to work Sundays if you do not want to. You are also allowed to switch shifts.

    Cons

    The customers are very rude to you on a daily basis. The management treats you as if you were a child, it takes a very long time to advance into another area especially management. They pay you the minimum they are allowed to pay you and when you get raises, the highest you usually get is a 20 cent raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on the hourly wages as employees work harder than normal jobs. Have better insurance as the insurance provided is pretty low. Work on your management and management choices.
