Varying traffic and busy weekends
Floor Staff (Former Employee) – Vista, CA – May 29, 2017
There isn't a whole lot to say about my time working with Cinepolis, but that isn't a bad thing. I rarely had any problems with my managers, and all of my coworkers were friendly and welcoming toward newcomers.
It was incredibly flexible so far as scheduling went, though it did seem we were notified of our hours relatively last minute on a frequent basis, often receiving them only a day before the work week actually began. That concern can be offset with the ability to trade and release shifts online among the other staff. If you know you have plans at least a month ahead, you could also request that time off.
It did seem like many of the shift leads had been working a long time, one of my friendlier coworkers had even been there for over a decade and was still holding the same title as me. I imagine there isn't a whole lot of room to move up the ladder in a movie theater, though, so that can be understood.
I have very little negative to say about the experience, and it was amazingly practical as my first job. I learned many skills which will help me find work in the future, and it was generally a fun environment to work in.
