Flexible hours & super easy work
Crew Member (Former Employee), Brooklyn, OhioOctober 13, 2014
Pros: free movies for you and friends and family
Cons: minimum wage, no raises, favoritism towards certain employees
It's an okay place to work until you find something better. This job is ideally for teenagers or someone who's never worked before. There's absolutely no room for advancement unless someone gets fired or quits. One of the supervisors has worked there for nine years and had just became supervisor! Very diverse with races. When you start they train you – more... to do every position ( usher, greeter, box office, concessions). But for some reason no African American people are ever in box office. Never! Also they have favorites and those are the workers who get the most hours every week. ( which is 20-25) if you're not a butt kisser It's very typical that you will get 10 -15 hours a week. Or less! Even if you have a open schedule...Some days supervisors won't even speak unless they have to or you're cool with them. – less

Okay work place with unique people
Crew Member (Former Employee), Burlington, WASeptember 22, 2014
Pros: free popcorn, drinks, and movies.
Cons: management, staff, unfair, and ruthless supervisors.
The job is typically easy, you know what to do and you simply do it and be on your way. The hard part of the job was dealing with the supervisors and managers not the guests surprisingly. Co-workers would get certain treatment than others, and there was a definite unfairness going on between who does the work.

Good first job for young kids
Team Lead/Supervisor (Former Employee), Hamilton, NJSeptember 20, 2014
Pros: free movies
Cons: low pay
It was a good first job. I learned how to stay calm in stressful situations, especially when working in customer services. I liked getting free movie passes and discounted food. It didn't pay very well though so I just saw it as a stepping stone to something else. I worked with some really great people and made good friends while working there.

JUST NO!
Busser (Current Employee), Edison, NJSeptember 16, 2014
Pros: the bussers are fun:)
Cons: short breaks: management: no pay: hours! they dont care!
It is a negative place to work at. Horrible! No breaks. Managent is terrible! No pay or overpay. No overpay for holidays! The trainees i sometimes train ask me why are people not working and why arent the managers/ supervisors watching?! No guest should come here. Its too pricey. Im the only one nice to the guests besides a few people. what A SHAME!

Flexible schedule, fast pace
Supervisor/Projectionist (Former Employee), Burbank, CAAugust 28, 2014
Pros: free movies
Cons: low pay for supervisors
A typical day for me as a supervisor during the week would be to complete daily and weekly tasks such as scheduling, booth operations. During the weekends i would oversee and assist management and crew members, making sure operations ran smoothly with minimal concerns from guests. Great opportunity when working in a smaller theater to learn different – more... skills, such as scheduling and marketing. – less

Usher, Concessionist, and Box Office Cashier (Current Employee), Ocoee, FLAugust 20, 2014
Pros: free movies
Cons: no breaks, no benefits, and a small amount of hours
You get free movies, that's it. No benefits, not a lot of hours, and no raises unless minimum wage goes up. Management are pretty flexible with hours and your days off but don't expect to get more than 25 hours a week. No breaks for an 8 hour shift unless you beg them for it though.

If you're family oriented this is not the job for you
Manager (Current Employee), DFWAugust 11, 2014
Pros: free movies
Cons: pay, management, never get to see family
The life/work balance is horrible. All the company cares about is money. Pay is horrible. Working hard can get you to Manager. But to get any promotion beyond that you have to kiss up.

Sometimes fun, but often stressful with poor management
Crew Member (Current Employee), Bensalem, PAAugust 10, 2014
Pros: young fun people
Cons: almost never get breaks if you're 18 or older
The management changes every month and no one stays long. However (for the most part) the young lively crew are really fun, but usually only stay for a season or two. Every manager, supervisor, and crew member I started with two years ago is gone.

does not value employees
Film Crew/Trainer (Former Employee), Tampa, FLAugust 8, 2014
Pros: free movies
Cons: lack of breaks unless you are a minor
expected to do a lot of work for a little pay (min wage). only time you will see a raise is when min wage goes up. This company does not have its employees best interest at heart. management at theater level is ok however the higher up you go the greedier they are. you meet a lot of cool people but they don't last long as the turnover rate has to be – more... at about 90%. – less

Manager (Former Employee), Houston, TXAugust 2, 2014
Pros: some might say the free movies
Cons: no benefits
It is very hard to have a life outside of Amc. The hours are demanding, even though film crew can only get 29 hours they will use it to the fullest. Co-workers are fun, it is easy to meet new people and build friendships, but guest are out of control. The job isn't hard at all, its very simple. The guest are the hardest part.

Fun part-time work
Film Crew (Former Employee), Crestwood, ILJuly 28, 2014
Pros: free movies, discounts on food, co-workers
Cons: short breaks, part-time work
I'm a former film crew associate. I was at AMC for 2 years. I did love working with my co-workers. It was never a dull moment unless you work earlier in the day. Weekends were the worst, you would think being busy and constantly running around would make time go by faster, it really doesn't. It was a nice change of pace on the schedule because you wouldn't – more... have just one job. I would either work box office, concession, tickettaking (which would drag, cuz your at one spot your whole 5-8 hour shift) or i would usher (clean theatres & the lobby). I loved cleaning theatres because the time would go by fast. My only problem with this job is it was only part-time. So I would be lucky if I worked 15-20 hours a week on minimum wage. Also they would have you on On-Call. So I would always have to call an hour before my shift to find out if they needed me to work. Lots of times when they didn't need me, I needed the hours OR when they needed me I didn't want to go in. I did overall enjoy my work experience at AMC. A great job for high school kids and college kids for the summer. You do enjoy ALL the free movies you want! – less
