I worked at Cinemark part-time (less than an year)

Pros

- Free movies
- 1 polite manager

Cons

- Poor management, with terrible attitudes.
- Awful hours
- Terrible scheduling
- No concern for physical/emotional health.
- Mentally straining.
- Minimum wage
- Write ups for small things, like "Swinging your broom in an odd way".
- Management does not care about personal issues. If you can't come in to work, you either need to find someone to cover your shift, or come in with a doctor's note. No leniency.
- No regard for your sleep. They will schedule you two 8 hour shifts, with a four hour break in between. Not even considered a split shift.
- No added benefits.
- No proper training. You are trained by the newest batch of hires.
- Cinemark constantly loses employees. They re-hire new employees every month, because of their extreme losses. No one really stays more than a year, at most.
-Unattractive and unflattering uniforms.
- Don't get to pre-screen movies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Overall, Cinemark 16 is a terrible place to work. Who would have thought that such a low paying job, would provide this much stress? The ONLY positive aspect of this job, are the free movies.

And you don't even get to see them, because you're on probation all of the time for minuscule write-ups.

    Pros

    The fast paced atmosphere can be fun at times, though stressful if you let it be.

    Cons

    -Managers can be as young as 19 if that tells you anything.
    -They don't really care how dirty the concessions area gets (I'm talking roaches in the candy display cases...because they didn't think through taking candy OUT of the boxes beforehand)
    -VERY high turnover rate. Only high school kids will work here because they don't know any better (it was my first job)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers that are old enough to have an actual maturity level.

    I worked at Cinemark part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I learned a lot how movie theaters operate. I got educated in food preparation, food service, and customer service. It was a good way to learn to work as a team, to learn to rely on others, and responsibility.

    Cons

    Most employees are there just until something else comes along. Management could be difficult to deal with. Advancement sometimes depends on managerial preference rather than ability or seniority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't "attack" employees in front of other employees or customers. If there's a problem, take it somewhere private to discuss it.
