    I have been working at AMC Entertainment part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I can't speak for every location but my coworkers are incredibly fun and my absolute best friends. Everyone including most of the managers are very laid back and understanding and do what they can to help you out. Free movies are great, and a very flexible schedule.

    Cons

    For the amount of work we do and crap we have to put up with the pay is outrageously bad. We seem to always be short staffed and having to work doubles with short breaks. If you get a job here expect to work most holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Better training, I.E. make sure every single employee is trained in EVERY position, as it should be.

    I have been working at AMC Entertainment part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    + Fun environment
    + Free movies
    + Free popcorn/drinks; discounted concessions while working
    + Free premiere Stubs card (Cast card)

    Cons

    - Can be stressful during weekends / rushes
    - Enjoyment strongly dependent on management/crew; hit or miss depending on the theatre
    - Low pay for amount of work done
    - Favoritism can be an issue
    - Theatres can be trashed, guests can be very rude/impatient

    Advice to Management

    Raise starting pay for film crew, or increase the raises/frequency of raises. Film crew does a lot of work that is definitely above minimum wage.

    I worked at AMC Entertainment part-time

    Pros

    - chill environment; nice people
    - free perks such as movies, popcorn, drinks, and premium rewards card

    Cons

    - not enough hands-on training and supervision - even after the 5hr orientation

    Advice to Management

    More supervision and training, please. Because of the chill environment, the consequences hit me hard when I made a small mistake.

    Pros

    Atmosphere is fun and exciting

    Cons

    The cleaning should be left to a specific person. A Janitor.

    Advice to Management

    Hire janitors. I didn't come to work there to clean stalls and theater rooms. Get real!
