    Anonymous Employee in Northbrook, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AMC Entertainment (Northbrook, IL).

    Interview

    I had applied online which took about 20 minutes to fill out and was contacted two weeks after to schedule an interview. The interview was relatively short and took place in the back room with two managers. They asked me a few questions about what I did in school, and it was very conversational. They also asked What I think about the importance of a clean facility and What is my favourite movie. It was a fairly easy interview and I got the job within a week.

    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AMC Entertainment (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    Everything was conducted telephonically. Since I was applying internally the first step was gaining the recommendation of my supervisor. Then a phone “discussion” was scheduled with the director of operations for the theatre i was applying for. They called it a discussion and thats how it felt. Following the discussion it was requested I complete a relocation questionnaire. Upon completion of this I was formally offered the position. From application to offer was approximately 3-4weeks. I interviewed for 5 positions before being accepted for one, but I got the impression after my second that the director of operations had a specific theatre in mind for me based on my skill set. I was eventually asked to apply for that position and hired.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions dealt with my experiences with the company to date. Hiring philosophies, and specific questions related to the individual theatre (did i know the budget, satisfaction and major complaints). Additionally, strategies to solve problems were asked. Keep in mind I was applying internally so all this information was readily accessible to me, I just needed to know where to look for it.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Received a phone call from them to have a phone interview to near down their options. They liked the answers I had gave and asked me to come in for a face-to-face interview. Manager was very welcoming and the whole process took maybe like 20 minutes? Went great and questions were easy. Just make sure to study a bit about the AMC stubs program. Got hired on the spot!

    Crew Member Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AMC Entertainment (Saint Louis, MO) in December 2017.

    Interview

    My interview was today at 4:30pm, I walked in and went to the ticket booth and asked for a manager. The called manager came and gave me a Crew overview packet (like what to expect, uniform, treatment, etc.) and a Stubs membership ticket to memorize. 10-15 minutes later, I was greeted by the lead manager, a very nice older man. 5 minutes into the interview and I was at ease. I became really relaxed into the interview because it felt like I was having a regular conversation (He actually reminded me of a old favorite teacher of mine.) You do have to a acting out or role play of a costumer and an associate and try to sell them a Stubs membership, but my manager didn’t have me do it. Overall very positive interview, my advice is to relax, memorize the Stub membership perks before hand, and just be yourself, they love friendly people. Good luck in advance!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AMC Entertainment (Vero Beach, FL) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I applied with Indeed. The whole thing was very pleasant. The woman who interviewed me was my age which made me feel more comfortable (22ish). She was very pleasant and didn’t glare at me the whole time like with other interviews I’ve had. (*cough* Walmart *cough*) She told me a bit about herself as I answered questions. She hired me right on the spot. I believe it’s only seasonal for now but I’ll be working hard for a permanent position.

    Interview Questions

    Crew Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dover, DE

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at AMC Entertainment (Dover, DE) in December 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was awkward and weird. There were 3 people in the room sitting around me as if it were an interrogation rather than an interview. The hiring manager was sitting in a corner looking very rude and the girl reading the questions was practically screaming at me. Being that this was my first interview experience, it wasn’t how I expected it to be.
