    Team Member Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Harkins Theatres (Denver, CO) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I printed out my application, signed it, and turned it into Guest Services. They called me about 4 days later and scheduled an interview later that week.

    The first interview was very simple. The manager that interviewed me started some small talk on the way to the conference room (asked me how my day was going and about my favorite movies). Once we got the the room, he asked me to tell him a little bit about myself and pretty much just confirmed the information that was already on my application. Then, he explained what the position that I applied for was all about. I asked a few questions (which I recommend you do) and that concluded the interview. He told me that they would call me some time the next day to schedule another interview if he felt I was sufficient enough. If not, he told me to apply again (if they don't call you, that doesn't mean you were rejected, it just means that their were other candidates that better fit that position that go around).

    I was called back for a second interview. This interview was where they started to ask questions that were written on paper (some examples below). After that, the interviewer told me what type of person he was looking for and that I fit that description, and hired me on the spot. He then gave me some paperwork for orientation that was it.

    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.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Harkins Theatres (Phoenix, AZ) in January 2017.

    Interview

    It was about 20 minutes but it felt like it went fast. The manager would ask situation type questions about every 5 minutes in between asking about my prior work history and my interests etc. Right at the end he asked if i want a job? I accepted then i was escorted out the front door. I applied around a month ago then got a phone interview. After i was asked to come in for an in person interview the next day. If you get the job you need to wear black slacks, black socks, & black shoes when you go for orientation. Shirt i am unsure about? I never asked.

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Harkins Theatres.

    Interview

    I turned in my application to the site. It wasn't open yet so they had an EZ Up with a table underneath where you could hand them to a manager. All they did there was ask my name and if I was in high school and, if so, what grade. The next day I got a call asking me to come in for an interview a week later. The interview was fairly simple. After the questions, the manager explained a bit of the history of the company and some of the benefits. We sat in the shade and it was freezing so I ended up looking more nervous than I actually was during the whole interview. They said they would call me and that was it.
