Movie theater crew member (Former Employee) – Oak Brook, IL – September 20, 2017
I liked working at AMC theaters. It was a more calm environment. The people were more fun and relaxed. I was only there for four months (minus my month and a half in the hospital) and they were already speaking of promotion. They were very caring and understanding and if the pay was more I would have definitely stayed but the amount I made wasn't going to help me with any fees that I had to pay. But Overall it was a good job.

Obvious favouritism. If you're not one of the bosses favourites, you get minimal hours (1 shift a week) and get cut, while the faves get 4 shifts a week. Corporate won't do anything about it. Got informed I was being denied a promotion because "We want our managers to be friends outside of work." Treated terribly constantly, management doesn't do anything, the faves get paid for 4 shifts of just sitting chatting with management about random nonsense while 1 person is working a line of about 200 people and gets told that they need to work faster.

A regular day at work consist of clocking in stocking up concession stand, taking orders from customers, giving them change, making their order and keeping your area clean. If your an usher you have to clean the theaters after all the customers have watched their movie before the next movie starts, keep the lobby cleaned and stocked.
Film Crew (Former Employee) – Paramus, NJ – September 16, 2017
This job is strictly for teenagers and young adults. Working here changed me. I became a people's person. I gained a lot of friends inside and outside of this theater. One of the best benefits of working here is free movies. I would love to work here again only if the pay is better and benefits.
General Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 14, 2017
AMC was a great career for me from crew level to the highest field position of GM at a large location. Recently the CEO has gone in a new direction and this has resulted in impossible expectations on leaders in the field. Working 60+ hours every week trying to accomplish this has left no personal life balance for the last year. For a motivated leader without children, it is a great ride but if you have kids you hardly see them.
Theatre Crew (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – September 12, 2017
AMC was a ok job for what it was but we didin't payed for the amount of work we did not to mention mandatory holidays to work with no holiday pay or overtime, but besides that it was a ok part time job if you liked free movies
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Newport, KY – September 11, 2017
The atmosphere of AMC is different from when I was employed. It was a strict workplace environment, and has appeared to become more lay back from when I was there. The hardest part was dealing with customers that were disruptive (ex: cell phones being used while the movie is playing), and under aged individuals that wanted into R rated theaters. I enjoyed the free movies and movie posters!
Crew Member (Current Employee) – Raleigh, NC – September 11, 2017
The management at AMC depends on which theater you go to. The theater I worked at over the summer had nice management, however there were severe issues with the internal structures of the company including, but not limited to scheduling, transfers for people moving, payment increases and promotions, and the overall management's lack of knowledge about how the theaters were run. You may not have to wake up that early, but for the amount of work you have to do on a consistent, minimum wage is unacceptable payment.
