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

Pros

I really liked all my managers and co-workers. Everything was run very well and very professionally. I got scheduled quite a bit, and you get raises after every 6 months. Also, they are very good about letting me come back to work during summer and winter break because I am a full time student. You get free popcorn and soda while on your break, and %50 off concessions during work.

Cons

Late closing times. Little room for promotions. Raise was very small. (12 cents) As a concessionist standing for 9 and a half hours with no real padding on a concrete floor was no fun. Very short breaks. (15 minutes every 4 hours) Also, for some reason the customers seemed to hate us for selling them over-priced goods. I thought it was a well known fact that everything we sell is at a 300% mark-up.

Advice to Management

Let us have a lunch break (at least 20-25 minutes) if we are working an 8 hour shift.

    -Free Movies.
    -Flexible Schedule.
    -Easy to make friends with coworkers.
    -Free popcorn and drinks while working.

    -Unprofessional management who usually do the bare minimum amount of work, and blame it on the employees when confronted.
    -Very low pay and raises are minimal in the rare instance they are given.
    -Promotions are given out based on favoritism, not on merit.
    -Employees get little to no recognition for doing more work than others, rather than just standing around.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees know that their hard work is appreciated and consider giving employees promotions for the right reasons.

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

    Pros

    You get to preview movies
    Half off of everything
    It is a fun job to start at

    Cons

    It is open every day of the year so you must work all weekends and holidays
    Managers do not make much more that employees
    Every general manager is different. You can be a senior manager at one theatre making a few dollars less than one who just started at a theatre twenty minutes away.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure everyone is enforcing the same rules
