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

Pros

My co-workers were the best people I could have ever met. I am blessed to have gotten an opportunity to work with them.
The tips were decent.
Being able to watch a movie for free at AMC saves a lot of money.

Cons

There were often scheduling conflicts that took too long to resolve. Day off requests were often not approved even though they were submitted 3 weeks in advance.
Servers were required to up-sell the STUBS loyalty program. Servers who sold more of the STUBS were given better sections in the theaters.
Servers had to follow a script. If the script was not followed exactly and management found out, the server was reprimanded.

Advice to Management

Management needs to understand the restaurant aspect of the Dine-In Theater experience as opposed to just focusing on the theater aspect.

    Pros

    Cons

    The pay is just terrible
    Management are complete butt-heads

    Upselling food that is already overpriced to rude customers

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees instead of dismissing their issues. Properly train and educate them instead of having them figure out the ropes for themselves only to be screwed by you all.

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

    Pros

    Work tasks are quite simple. All my supervisors and managers were very friendly and acommodating. Theater was in a nice location so very seldom encountered rude guests. Builds interpersonal skills.

    Cons

    Extremely busy on opening weekends for big ticket movies like tentpole blockbusters which can get hectic at times, and as a result that's when they'll need you the most. Weekday shifts moved at a glacial pace due to lack of business for theaters during those times. Minimum wage, but that's to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    No complaints here.
