I worked at AMC Entertainment part-time (Less than a year)
Really, not a lot of employee perks beat free movies! (Legit benefits are another story, because I've heard AMC doesn't give that out much, but most of the film crew I work with are teens or young adults who don't seem to care about that yet) Our management had a knack for hiring nice, interesting people who also seemed to love movies, so it was always a joy working with them and discussing movies. The job is honestly really easy. You need to be great at customer service, aka you're patient and able to deal with the most unreasonable arguments and requests from guests. Just having to swallow your pride to let a guest walk away thinking they got their way is a bit hard, such as when people cuss you out or try to get free movie passes. In summary, easiness of job and getting to talk with a great film crew made it such a fun place to work. I really loved it!
Long hours/late nights (not exactly a con, but more of a heads up that movie theaters close around 1AM on weekends sometimes so you'd go home around there or 2AM) Low pay ($9) for what we do sometimes. There were nights with huge rushes and the film crew was sort of understaffed and we had to work double to keep up. During those times, $9 doesn't feel enough.
Advice to Management
Mass hiring during summer is obviously a necessity, but don't over do it just to fire some current employees. It isn't worth losing a few quality people just to hire an additional 10 people who can barely move quick or get the job done efficiently. At times, I felt expendable, which of course I am, but do notice that some workers are a lot better than others in terms customer service.
