    Pros

    This is a great place to work at. If you like movies, join this company. I wish I could have moved up within the company on the corporate side.

    Cons

    As for cons, you will deal with the normal cons that come with any kind of retail jobs. Unruly customers that lack respect. I know it is your time and money, but I am a person on the other end of your diatribe. Keep that in mind people!!!

    I have been working at AMC Entertainment full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Work with some of the most talented, amazing, fun, and loving people you will ever encounter - Great business integrity. At least corporate try to be. All GM are different, but most of them actually care about you and your personal well being - Good learning opportunity in terms of business management, people management. It really depends on your direct supervisor if they are the inspiring type of get through the day type. - Usually pretty flexible with schedule, you can generally get any days off as long as you communicate in advance, properly. - OK on 401K, medical benefits. I don't personally use medical benefits but I heard it's not cheap - great benefits for part-time associates as they can see movies for free, 50% off concession price up to certain amount ($100 I think).

    Cons

    - Very labor intensive, long hours, lack of work live balance. Theatre NEVER close... Holidays, snow day... They are getting better, but very hard for part time associate to be as dedicated. - Strict staff model, cutting pennies to spent dollar. Often run into improper staffing models and people calling out sick and no one willing to cover. - If you are a supervisor or above, expect no break, your only break is to sit in the office between rushes. - Be prepared to deal with some of the ruthless people, at the same time you will see some really nice frequent movie goers - Don't expect raises. The only way to have a financial gain is to move up the latter - The training program for Manager or above is really all depending on your managerial experience rather than actual training. Mostly learned from job - Profit usually comes first. My market really valued integrity, but often profit comes before service and people

    I worked at AMC Entertainment full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    One of the best things about working at AMC was definitely the crew they made coming to work not a chore and we all got a long and had fun while doing our job. It’s also pretty great getting to interact with people and over time build friendly relationships with guests

    Cons

    I’d say a con would be the scheduling during slow times
