It is once every two weeks. It won't include the week you most recently worked. The payroll week goes by the film week which starts Fridays and ends Thursdays. so every other Thursday, you will receive your direct deposit. If you have a federal bank like USAA for example, you will receive your payment a little sooner like Wednesday instead.

14 with work permit but in California its better to work at 16 and above because there are so many limits on time and what you can do when you are younger.

Easy. Just be yourself. They don't truly care about the answers to your questions. They want someone polite and competent.

Because of the nature of the application (all done online with assessments) the application takes about a week or two before it is able to be seen by the theater. Applications are automatically flagged as "Green" "Yellow" or "Red". Red means you failed the application and are unable to be hired. You can try again in 90 days I believe. If you are Yellow or Green, the theater is able to proceed with the interview process. I always recommend waiting a week or two and then calling the theater when it won't be busy (10am - 5pm Mon, Wed, Thur, Fri) and asking for a manger to inquire about the status of your application.

No tattoos above the collar line or on the face. Nothing that can be offensive to others. Other than that it's been allowed since 2014.

I get 13.25 an hour but that is for me who lives in Los Angeles so we get a higher minimum.

They try to keep you at or under 30 hours a week on average. If you worked 40+ hour weeks for a few weeks, your hours will eventually get trimmed to average you back to 30 unless the theater knows you are leaving AMC soon or about to get promoted to management.

Be confident, review the AMC Stubs rewards program (they offer 3 different tiers). Make sure you elaborate with your answers. A super short interview is generally a good indicator that it didn't go well. You want to make an impact especially if they are interviewing you a month before an upcoming holiday. They see and interview a lot of people.
