I have been working at Cineplex Entertainment part-time

Pros

-Free movies for you and a friend every two weeks
-Friendly environment, fun meetings and celebrations
-If you work hard, you will be recognized
-It is hard work but VERY fun at the same time.

Cons

-It is HARDWORK for minimum wage. You have to stay there till late.. and late I mean easilyyyyy 12-1am.
-It can get really busy before show times
-If you work concession, its too much stress when it gets busy. And you have to do physical count every night and that is a PAIN because if the count doesn't match with what is in the system you are STAYINGGGGGG LATE until it is sorted out..
-If you work as usher, you'll have to clean up after people's mess and when it busy it's not that fund
-Never worked box office but it seemed much more relaxed than the other positions

    I worked at Cineplex Entertainment part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You get free movies, staff popcorn and drinks not to mention private screenings of new movies without guests around. It's a good place for a starter job with flexible hours and reasonable pay.

    Cons

    It's a high paced environment which is highly guest oriented. The initial pay is usually good but increases are capped which can handcuff management in rewarding excellent staff. The training is often on the job and the age range of the staff is very young which can lead to workplace drama.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the cap on wages and offer benefits to assistant managers.
