Fun place to work

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Fun place to work but not very challenging and pay is not the best(it is a movie theater). Management is fun and knows how to have a good time. Good company to move up in or start a job.

This was a great place before CARMIKE

Loved my job before Carmike. My DO pressured me to make a lot of choices that I were not comfortable. Then would scold me for them and I would loose my bonuses due to not hitting metrics. All they seem to care about is the money. NOT THE STAFF. Hard to run a theatre on a skeleton crew.

Management that does not know what they are doing

Management seemed like they had no idea what they were doing. And because of this, they took it out on the employees. Gave crew very little time to get tasks done and then were upset when it wasn't done all the way. They had crew members do the tasks that they didn't have time to do even though it was their responsibility. They gave such a large workload to all the employees with very little time to get it done. They were not helpful at all unless you asked for it. If it was super busy, some of them were likely in the back office doing nothing until you asked them to come out and help. They expected everyone to know everything, they had such high expectations set and no room for disappointment. Overall, they expected way too much from everyone but themselves.


Free movies and flexible hours


short breaks, bad management, bad pay, and no real benefits like insurance

Great Starting job

It is a good starter job. As a crew member, you will be trained to take on different jobs such as: usher, concession, box office, greeter, etc. Typically, concession is the most active and difficult position, but you will have someone to help out on a busy day or a sudden rush hour. Depending on location, Co-workers and management can be pretty cool.

Great starter job

For my first job it’s great working at AMCThey give you a variety of jobs for crew whether it be concession, box office, greeter, etc. The management is very supportive and caring about crew members. I’ve learned many things from AMC. From how to handle customer complains to advertising and more


50% of concessions, One free movie everyday, free popcorn, free posters

good place to work, flexible and mostly good coworkers depending on location. You can move up if you try. Con's are dealing with awful customers and drunk people

Easy entry-level job to be hired at

Flexible hours and low-stress environment to be working at. Assigned roles depended on the day but typically included being greeter, cashier, hot foods, usher, etc. Can be a plus to work here if you love watching movies with the free tickets provided.

you will never get any type of raise or improvement in your job title, and if you do, its like 2 years in and its like a couple cents raise.

you will never get any type of raise or improvement in your job title, and if you do, its like 2 years in and its like a couple cents raise. i also dealt with very unprofessional management. they were always causing drama, picking favorites, and talking bad about everyone behind their backs. even about each other.


free movies


barely any breaks. horribly unprofessional management.

Terrible work experience, unclean, bad management, bad rapport.

Worked there for two weeks and only talked to my manager once. I was never trained how to prepare any of the food and I was scheduled by myself for cooking shifts.

Fun for a part time job

Fun for a part time job. Management was OK. Hours during winter hard to come by. The staffing team was great to work with. Some customers are rude as they do not understand that movie industry set ticket prices and theater only makes money off concessions

Fun & Good First Job

I worked for AMC as my first job and it was decent at best, I didn't get properly trained in all the areas I needed too and really had to teach myself the basic ropes of the job, and or ask other fellow co-workers.

Family Run

Lots of talk, not much walk behind the talk; some good people doing good work but management gives lip service to their ideals without any follow-through--everything is about their bottom-line and profit.

Productive and fun workplace

Productive and fun workplace; overall it was pretty cool working here, from management to shift availability i felt pretty accommodated in my time here

Depends on location and job role

My main location I worked at was great, management was supportive and flexible in terms of scheduling, especially after I'd been there for a while and demonstrated my value as a worker. Money is okay. Because it's a theater, it depends a lot on the day of the week and what movies are out. Some days I'd walk with $20 in tips, others was several hundred. Definitely could've made more money at a club or something, but I prefer a laid-back atmosphere and not dealing with a lot of noisy drunks.


fun environment if you like movies, flexible scheduling, meeting lots of new people, good tips (sometimes)


bad tips (sometimes), have to work most weekends and holidays, benefits are meh

Terrible place to attempt to build yourself up.

Very toxic management team that will not build the crew up. Extreme drama nonstop and it impedes on daily work tasks. Not able to progress and go above and beyond even when displaying interest in doing so. Hard work goes unnoticed.


Easy work


Bad benefits, no communication, short breaks, no free food unless a manager, unable to progress or succeed.

Good Experience

It was a fun job with friends. There are lots of room for promotions within. Management does a good job and they kept it light when I worked there. Good experience overall.

Productive and Easy

Being a manager isn’t hard and the pay is decent. The only cons working here is that they ask you give up our holidays and weekends. It’s not that bad though, it’s a fun place to work at.
