    I worked at AMC Entertainment part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Discounts on items and Free Movies

    Cons

    You do a lot of work, and get paid very little. I wasn't very sympathetic to fastfood workers wanting a 15 min wage, until this experience.

    I worked Christmas Week in 2015 (during Star War Ep 7 Release)

    I worked at AMC Entertainment part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free movies basically whenever you want, discounts on food, free stubs premium membership.

    Cons

    Not enough hours, never the right amount of staff, either understaffed or over so you often get sent home early.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be better at managing schedules. Don't just give one person all the hours.

    I worked at AMC Entertainment (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers had a lot of spirit and were like family, discounts on movies and food.

    Cons

    Understaffed, don't care about their employees, work too hard for the pay.

    I worked at AMC Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free movies, flexible hours, great co-workers, fun area to work in. Free popcorn and icee/soda during your lunch break. Seem to care about the employees' needs and wants.

    Cons

    Late hour shifts, little support from management, low pay, can be hard work, customers are very entitled, movie theatres can lose their magic after working in one

    Advice to Management

    Take the employees' side once in a while. Wanting to keep the customer happy and returning is important, but sometimes they are abusing the employee and management encourages that behavior by condoning it.
