    I have been working at Cinemark full-time

    Pros

    Friendly, career-building, mostly positive experience.

    Cons

    It is tough to separate from other employees due to the nature of their position in life. High schoolers sometimes don't really care as much as they should.

    I have been working at Cinemark part-time

    Pros

    Great staff, good coworkers, fairly easy job, if you have never have anything going on on weekends, this is the job for you

    Cons

    At my Cinemark at least, it's really unorganized when it comes to scheduling, schedules comes that Wednesday of that week itself so you don't get much time in advance to mentally prepare yourself, and they schedule literally everyone that works there on all the same days so it makes it really hard to find someone to cover for you if you need someone to. Personally, I requested to work 20-25 hours a week but as a high schooler, they will only schedule me to work the weekend so to get those hours want, they make you work all weekend so you're exhausted by Monday. I would prefer if they spread my hours throughout the week so I'm not working 25-30 hours in 2-3 days, but with how slow it is on weekdays, it's understandable, just not preferable.
    The benefits also kinda suck, you can get bad popcorn during your shift and drinks and free movie passes but, movies are only $2.25 so it's not that big of a deal.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people so you're not understaffed and it gives your employees better hours

    I worked at Cinemark part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cinemark has the ultimate flexible schedule available out there. This is golden for those in college. The primary work days are weekends, so during the week is practically optional.

    Cons

    The management, depending on your location will make or break your experience. It will be the difference of staying a longer term, or running for your life. Customers are also a very particular, and anyone who works in customer service of any kind will know what I mean.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair. Be mature. Talk to your employees. And at least compliment those who work really hard every shift.

    I have been working at Cinemark part-time

    Pros

    Its a great summer job and is great as a youngster's first job when you turn 16 and want to get a free movie no matter what!

    Cons

    It does get boring here and there when its not a busy season for movies, and as an usher, you MUST have a strong stomach for it!

    Advice to Management

    Don't be too harsh about being flexible, because being flexible shows that the employee wants to do more.
