    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work at cineplex is amazing people and the work you do. I have been there a while and i can honestky say this is one of the best jobs that i worked part time

    Cons

    there is no major downside in my opinion but there is one rule even if your shift says you end at say 11 30 you dont go until you close your station so that can take up to 12 30 if you are not quick enough.

    Pros

    Great company to work at for entry level position. Flexible schedules allow for you to plan around personal, athletic, and academic priorities.

    Cons

    Requires late hours (10:00 p.m. +) for employees who tend to be 14-18 years old. Salary tends to be competitive with other entry level jobs of similar experience, but with very slow salary increase.

    I worked at Cineplex Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you're looking to get into Digital Media it is a good place to work on high profile brands and get exposure to interactive technologies. Projects often run over budget so it is a great place to learn new things and pick up some new skills. If you're confident no one will suspect a thing!

    Very 9-5 and free VIP 3D movies.

    Cons

    They will often hire people with out a digital media background to fill rolls like designers or accounts all the way up to executives. You will often feel like you're the smartest person in the building. If you are a PC gamer however this provides little room to grow.

    If you are not in a director role dont expect great compensation. The company's review structure is set up for executives to get large bonuses, their employment offer letter is misleading about compensation and growth.

    Accounts and executives only want to see finalized products/projects before they try to sell the client on the job. Lots of scope creep and blind leading the blind. This creates a weird company culture as people withhold knowledge/tasks for "job security" and to seem relevant.

    High turnover of competent skilled efficient staff. Low turnover of inefficient staff.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing politics and start focusing on the people you employ. Too many desperate hires! If all the employees that know what they're doing leave the company wont last too long.

    Pros

    Highly flexible hours. Option to continuously adjust hours and days of work, for every work week.

    Cons

    Measly pay increase for positions of higher responsibility, with pay increment taking several months to be enacted, if at all.

    Very high employee turnover.

    Advice to Management

    There's much more room for reduction in wastage of resources.
