    I have been working at Cinemark part-time

    Pros

    Flexible work hours. Chilled environment.

    Cons

    Pay could be much better!!

    Advice to Management

    Don't just walk by the associates like we aren't there. It doesn't hurt to say hello. The company is based on customer service and you expect the employees to speak to the customers and be personable but you walk by your employees and don't say a word. Lead by example!! Not all of management but most!!

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

    Pros

    The hours are flexible and the work isn't all that hard. Free movies are a definite bonus and it's nice to meet new people.

    Cons

    You have to occasionally clean up human excrement (i.e: vomit, feces, etc.) and I just don't think that 8.50 an hour is worth that. Also, they usually (for some reason) tend to give the ushers less hours than the rest of the titles.
