    I worked at Pacific Theatres part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I honestly stayed there longer than I should have for the free movies benefit. Nice job to have when you want a flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Not a place where they encourage out-of-the-box thinking. Barely make enough money to live off of.

    Advice to Management

    Take suggestions from employees more often. Don't be afraid to innovate and change.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pacific Theatres (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted my application the first week of April and they didn't get back to me till the first week of May. I decided to go to the group interview where you had to sign in and wait for a manager to take us into a conference room. The group consisted of 10 people and there were 3 stages for the group interview. The first stage were just ice breakers introductions. The manager asked basic questions such as why we were interested in working there and asked questions about our experience as customers and other questions that you could answer voluntarily. After announcing the people who made it to the second stage we had to do role play. He gave us scenarios with unsatisfied customers and we had to act out how we would deal with them. There was also a small presentation (2-3min) on the best party we ever went to or hosted" (one of the employees there told me they previously used to do it on examples of an individual showing leadership, but changed it ) The people who made it to the third round had one on one interviews with the manager (and I believe with HR also) and the people who were seen fit for the job were hired on the spot. They are looking for people who are very animated, passionate, and social. I was dropped from the second round because I was very stiff during my presentation and didn't show much confidence at that time. Honestly if you show them you're confident and friendly person you'll be under a good spotlight for them.
