Usher/Concessionist/Projectionist (Former Employee)
Fort Collins, CO

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 Senior ManagementOverall, 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Concessionist (Former Employee)
    Webster, TX

    I worked at Cinemark part-time for less than a year


    Pros: The fast paced atmosphere can be fun at times, though… 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… Advice to Senior Management: Hire managers that are old enough to have an actual… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
