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

Pros

-Free Movies.
-Flexible Schedule.
-Easy to make friends with coworkers.
-Free popcorn and drinks while working.
-50% concession discount while working.

Cons

-Customers complain to you about things out of your control (concession prices, How one side of the concession stand is closed, etc.)
-Unprofessional management who usually do the bare minimum amount of work, and blame it on the employees when confronted.
-Very low pay and raises are minimal in the rare instance they are given.
-Promotions are given out based on favoritism, not on merit.
-Employees get little to no recognition for doing more work than others, rather than just standing around.
-50% concession discount only applies to employees on the clock.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let employees know that their hard work is appreciated and consider giving employees promotions for the right reasons.

    I have been working at Cinemark full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to preview movies
    Half off of everything
    It is a fun job to start at

    Cons

    It is open every day of the year so you must work all weekends and holidays
    Managers do not make much more that employees
    Every general manager is different. You can be a senior manager at one theatre making a few dollars less than one who just started at a theatre twenty minutes away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure everyone is enforcing the same rules

    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?

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
