    I worked at AMC Entertainment part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced environment with a lot of entry level workers. Sales experience is always nice to work with in any job. Opportunities to get into management if you are motivated or interested. The company tends to have you ready after a few months-several months to move into a supervisory role.

    Cons

    Minimum wage to start. Work shifts can sometimes include doubles, 9am to 1am easy.


  2. "No time to learn, no loyalty from management, all about $$$"

    I worked at AMC Entertainment part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free Movies.
    Casual Dress code.
    Discounts on some food items while on the clock, 30 minutes before or after shifts.
    At AMC Universal Cineplex 20 we got all perks of Universal Employee.
    The Supervisors and managers would help out with tasks (usually)

    Cons

    -Minimum Wage and they get every penny's worth.
    -Understaffed (ex: One usher on a Sunday night after 11, 2 ushers 9-11, and ushering is the most physically demanding of all the film crew duties)
    -Rarely get breaks, and when you do it's during very slow periods. If it's busy, forget it.
    -No discounts on food items when off the clock.
    -Very little time to practice or learn.
    -Even when you are a new employee, they expect you to handle customers perfectly. Here the customer IS always right)
    -You are basically the manager's maid; although a few were actually very kind and seemed to care.

    Advice to Management

    Remember you only pay minimum wage. You can't expect part-time people to be perfect. Remember all people come from different backgrounds. Allow some time to learn and handle "rude" customers.
