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

    Pros

    I learned a lot how movie theaters operate. I got educated in food preparation, food service, and customer service. It was a good way to learn to work as a team, to learn to rely on others, and responsibility.

    Cons

    Most employees are there just until something else comes along. Management could be difficult to deal with. Advancement sometimes depends on managerial preference rather than ability or seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Don't "attack" employees in front of other employees or customers. If there's a problem, take it somewhere private to discuss it.


  2. "Shorter than expected"

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

    Pros

    It was fun getting one free movie... was it per week or per month? I can't remember. Seeing lots of people and what types of people would attend different movies.

    Cons

    I never got to try my hand at selling concessions (popcorn, drinks, and stuff), or selling tickets. I remained an usher, tearing tickets, directing people to the left or right, and cleaning up after shows. (Ever stepped on a floor that was sticky and slippery at the same time?)

    Advice to Management

    Don't have such a high turnover rate! Keep your employees longer!
