    I worked at AMC Entertainment full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    opportunity for advancement, fun industry, great training. They are a progressive company where advancement is based on accomplishment. Hard work counts

    Cons

    difficult industry. hard to make money and the employee base is very transient. A lot of kids who are not full time and thus not that invested in what they do.

    Advice to Management

    Continued training is important. reinvesting in staff is crucial to long-term success. The long-term success of the company is a good indicator of how well it recruits.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at AMC Entertainment (Chicago, IL).

    I had one face to face interview with 2 managers. They called me a couple days later and told me I got the job. I did not start working until about a month later even though they told me I would start in a week.
