AMC theater was a well balanced working environment that helped to motivate employees while also to discourage bad behavior from other. It would be a great place for someone to start off working at to help gain there work experience.

Management overall was helpful and the staff was fun. Employees were always expected to work in fast paced environments with long lines and sold out movies. For some, like myself, this can make shifts more challenging and enjoyable.
Does not appreciate it's most hard working employees.
Busser/Cook-Trainer (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 14, 2017
My 2 years at Amc Block 37 have been 2 very stressful, but also instructional years. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the variety of people you get to work with. A lot of them are fun to be around and I've built long lasting relationships with some. The same can be said for the management team. However, everything above the management team like General/Senior management, and corporate is where things start to get disconnected and out of place. The general vibe of the senior management is basically greedy. They usually demand a lot and don't give much appreciation in return. For employees that go above and beyond to complete tasks, there is not much compensation for hard work other than a "good job" from your leadership. Management no longer does employee of the month or any kind of recognition for their best employees either. As far as promotions go, they will almost always choose to call on management from other theaters to fill positions rather than promote the hard working and qualified employees they already have. The turnover rate of Amc Block 37 is incredibly high for good reason. If you're young and/or looking for a job for the next few months, it'll do. If you plan on becoming more than just another worker, look elsewhere.
Not much time for breaks, no appreciation for hard work, unorganized management twam

It's a stressful job at times and those times are more consistent than one would think. It is a demanding work environment and you have to be quick, friendly and efficient. Always wear a smile and try to connect is crucial. Earning that smile from a guest is the best part of the job.

A place where entertainment is all around you. You know what movies are coming out and when. You learn a bit about hospitality. AMC is known for their "AMC smile". Work is flexible and not very difficult.
Free popcorn during work hours; unlimited free movies
Can get busy and guests can become rude if a long line is making them late for their movie
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Hiram, GA – December 11, 2017
Fast paced working on weekends but not as busy on the weekdays. Learned a lot about customer service and working well with people. Most enjoyable part about the job is the great workers and free movies.

The work is simple and easy to do. The work environment is fun and rewarding. Free movies and reduced prices on meals. Everyone is friendly and cooperative. They make work go smoother. The managers could have done better and be more engaged in the work.
Reduces Meals, Free popcorn and soda, Flexible Schedule

Your job is to sell Stubs cards, if you can do this, you will have a job. Everything else can be overlooked barring major guest complaints. The training program takes a week, so you get used to sitting in a classroom and then are thrust into shifts. All of your training is on customer service, but if you are caught not selling cards, even to focus on helping a customer, you will be fired.

No day was a typical day. You could be schedule to do work in one section of the theater but end up doing many different things through out the day which I enjoy. The culture was good many people to work but small enough to know everyone, somewhat like a family. Stock or maintenance were difficult at times. Issue i had was management, instead of leading they were usually not around and expecting you to do 2-3 different jobs at the same time, which could be problem because you'll leave one team for another to hurry back and help them again. They also didn't hire enough so you were always under staff. I did learn many things from fixing walls/machinery,communication, cleaning etc...
Manager (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – December 7, 2017
It was fun - Advancement opportunities exist but you have to move to Kansas City. Little oversight was both a Pro and a Con. I didn't have anyone breathing down my back, but also, I don't think upper management had a clue of my capabilities.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Orange, CA – December 5, 2017
At AMC I had the privilege to work with some great employees who were really friendly, it is a very fast paced job when it gets busy. I got the chance to also enjoy the benefits of working at AMC, which included free movies.
