    Part Time Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Arclight Cinemas (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    A group interview and role play to see how one would handle certain situations. The process was short and easy. The management tells you what is expected from you and them. It was a waste of time. I got the job and everything was misleading on their part.

    Interview

    They ask you about how to handle certain situations with customers. Their is a one on one interview that I had to undergo out of about 8 people. I was randomly chosen for the interview. In the group interview they asked everyone to participate in questions they would ask and you should be proactive. Just be outspoken, outgoing, pleasant and have strong interpersonal skills and you will be fine.

    Cashier Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Arclight Cinemas (Culver City, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was actually quite creepy. We all gathered in a room to do a "group interview". Only about 1/3 of the interviewers actually got the job. Luckily I did get the job, but I felt sorry for the people that were turned away. If that had happened to me it probably would have been pretty depressing. The people that were the loudest got the job. Shy people were completely out of luck. I succesfully completed the embarrassing roll play so I believe that is why i got the job.

    Film Crew Member Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Arclight Cinemas (Hollywood, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    It is a group interview. There were atlas 20 other candidates that were applying for the positions. You make a big circle and they go over some questions before starting the whopping 3-4 hour interview process. I left before the second part of the interview because they DO NOT allow tattoos below the elbow regardless if you cover them up. You should probably pay more than minimum wage with all the crazy requirements of this company. Do not recommend and I will not spend my money there any longer.

    • They start off with availability etc... They were wanting complete open availability between THUR-SUNDAY   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Arclight Cinemas (Pasadena, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Very long, 3 + hours. The manager tended to ignore me and gave me an absurd role playing situation that was far more confusing than the other guy in the interview, who was an 18 year old who just graduated highschool. I feel like they just didn't like me and were biased because I have a lot of experience working at other movie theaters coming into it..
