    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harkins Theatres (Denver, CO) in July 2012.

    Interview

    To start off, the manager asked me to tell him about myself. After that, he explained to me how the interview would go from there and then immediately asked me what I knew about Harkins Theatres. From there he asked me to describe my previous position and if I had any experience in cash handling and inventory. Asked me to define "professionalism" and "integrity". Then he explained the positions, how the promotions work, and all the benefits. Then he asked if I had any questions, I asked him a few and the interview was over. It was about an hour long and he was very professional. We then set up the phone interview with the district manager and I left.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Harkins Theatres (Phoenix, AZ) in November 2009.

    Interview

    The interviews consisted of an SM, SM and GM, and DM interview. There were a lot of questions involved, but I can't remember what they were. Basically, you need to know how to handle difficult customer/employee situations. If you don't mind the pay, then you'll be set with a job that you might like.

    Concessionist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Harkins Theatres.

    Interview

    Started out as soon as I sat down with the Manager saying " Hey sorry I actually forgot you had an interview today." which was fantastic to hear. The manager looked like she had been running around all day and had no idea how to start the process, while another manager was in a suit helping out two other candidates. I was sat right next to the ticketbooth and had two employees laughing and giggling during a moment of my interview, which was distracting to say the least as I was in the middle of talking, and don't think she really heard anything I said. The interview was a breeze as it was the farthest thing from an actual interview, it was over in 20 minutes. I was offered a 10 hour a week position, if they were to follow up on a second interview which was declined. Not sure what the deal is but I hope they find what they're looking for. This is defintely more for someone's first job out of high school. Unfortunately it looks like for their management as well.
