        Approves of CEO

        I have been working at AMC Entertainment part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Tips are good if you work at a busy dine-in but business is not steady so they’re not something to depend. If you put in the work, the managers are very flexible with you and your schedule.

        Cons

        Can get overwhelming on busy holidays if there is not enough staff scheduled.

        Advice to Management

        Communicate anticipate rushes so everyone is ready

        Pros

        Great perks like free movies for you and a friend, discounts on snacks. Varying hours to fit your schedule. Relatively easy!

        You will always go home smelling like popcorn! Also there is a high turnover rate and it is mostly cleaning and getting dirty so if you don't like that,... you may not like this job!
