    Pros

    Free movies. Really the best reason to work for Cinemark/ Century is FREE movies. First job/job experience. Cinemark goes through employees by the season, so for teens looking for a first job it's a good place to go. Work Schedule. You work schedule is generally very flexible and can conform to high school or college students wanting to work 1-5 days per week. Generally shifts range from open - 5, 2-10, 5 - close... but they can also fit you in for a 2-5 work period depending on your schedule.

    Cons

    -Hourly Pay. Hourly pay is minimum wage at most locations, and most locations honestly expect hourly employees on the floor staff level to quit before giving out raises. -Loyalty. Cinemark honestly does not care how long you have been with them if you are on the floor staff/ assistant manager level. Employees who have consistently worked for the company for 3-5+ years find it hard to get raises or promotions. You will often find employees who have worked at the company for 5+ years(floor staff & assistant managers) and will be making 50 cents more than someone who just got hired. For a company that makes somewhere in the billions of dollars per year, they are extremely tight with money. -Rude Customers. You will find rude customers at all jobs that deal with the public, but one of Cinemarks main concerns is customer service. Most customers who have a complaint will be offered free movies passes regardless of what they are complaining about, and they catch onto this rather quickly. Sometimes you will see that same people complaining about the smallest of things every visit just to get free passes.

    Pros

    Easy job, usually there’s a nice staff to work with, it’s also a fun job, closing hours were my favorite but, you’re there until 2-3am,

    Cons

    Pay is low, hours aren’t flexible, you never know your schedule until two days before your schedule starts so taking off or scheduling events around work is difficult, managers are hostile and rude, safety concerns because when they close, they pour the popper grease down a floor drain and never clean up the excess. I had fallen myself and fractured my knee. Managers don’t coach you, they’re just there to scold you and order you around. Customers are very rude and hostile at times. They’re not flexible with school hours. They don’t allow you to use the restroom, I was sent to the GM when I did. I had informed the managers about the popper grease issue and they never cared about it even though employees kept falling. Field mice issue at concessions and lobby as well, they always said they called the exterminators yet, we still had them. I would’ve clicked 0 stars if I could.
