    Pros

    They try to be flexible with hours, you meet great people, get free movies, very laid back and you get guest passes.

    Cons

    Rude management, they don't care what you think even when they say that they do, very nit-picky, long hours, no benefits, low pay, rude customers.

    Advice to Management

    Try and make an actual change. Hear out your employees concerns. There's a reason there's a high turn over rate and its not just because this is a "high school job".

    Pros

    Free movies is a grea t benefit. Fun co-workers. Good environment.

    Cons

    Only getting 50% off on concessions and studio eats while on break. 9.30 an hour is too low for what we do a lot in the usher department, and the things we deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Up minimum wage for the company, we know you can afford it. Especially with the concession prices being so high and the high volume of customers we get.

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

    Pros

    The workers here are really chill, you'll make some good friends out of this job. I can build relationships with anyone here bc everyone is so friendly & laid back, that's what i like about it. The job itself is pretty cool though, you learn things about the theatres itself, it's pretty interesting.

    Cons

    Hours. You barely get any hours, you sorta have to fight for them. I don't like that they keep hiring and then they would cut people's shifts and send them home when it's not that busy. Like why keep hiring then cut shifts? I don't think so.

    I'd be happier having at least 4/5 days a week scheduled to work so that when we get paid every 2 weeks, i'm happy with how much i earned the time i have worked within the time being.

    Advice to Management

    Please work on the hours given to the workers even if it's just part time. It would be nice to have more working days than days off. What's the point in having a job when you barely work? Don't get me wrong but that's the only problem, for Ushers at least.
