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

Pros

Ideal for high school students looking to make some easy spending money
Depending on your location, usually really fun. Made great friends working there
Nearly impossible to get fired unless you steal or call out all of the time
Free movies for yourself, family, and friends
Discount on concession items 1hr before and after your shift
Free popcorn and soda on your breaks
A lot of downtime in between assignments depending on position of the day
Flexible scheduling (However it is mandatory to have 2 weekend days (Fri, Sat, or Sun) and 1 week day available)
Diverse coworkers
People come and go really fast at this job. If you hate someone, don't worry you probably won't have to deal with them for long

Cons

Minimum Wage
Inconsistent Scheduling
Close-knit community rather like high school which can be gossipy
If you're prissy you won't like ushering and taking out trash
No overtime pay
No benefits
Little to no room for advancement
Managers sit in office and do nothing (like most jobs)

Advice to Management

If you don't pay overtime, don't schedule people for it

    I have been working at AMC Entertainment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They give a crap about their people (depending on the theater). There is plenty of room to move up in the company if you're good enough. It's a ton of fun. Free movies and free popcorn/soda when you're at work.

    Cons

    Not very good pay (barely make above min wage depending on your location). Sometimes you work really, really long days. Most of the time you have to work holidays. Not very good health benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Tri-City 8 open.


  2. "The organization lacks focus and a moral compass."

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at AMC Entertainment full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free movies are the only perk that associates can really benefit from. The pros are hard to come by...

    Cons

    Consistently puts profit over it's people. The organization does not practice what it preaches and compensates poorly. Managers are asked to put the organization over themselves and their personal lives with little to nothing in return. The organization recently decided not to schedule film crew associates over 28 hours per week as to not pay health benefits to associates; despite coming off a record setting year in terms of profit and attendance.

    Advice to Management

    The true measure of what an organization values is solely on where it spends it's money.
