    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at AMC Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    Free movies, flexible hours, works with your schedule, free movie memorabilia. Beyond that..I can't find many upsides. It's a beginner job, for those with little to no skills/experience. The cons far outweigh the pro's.

    Cons

    Not enough training provided for new employees, poor management, lack of consistency, never staffed enough for busy periods. Compensation for the amount of work done is measly. Turnover rate is insane, Raises are a joke, not much opportunity for growth.

    The people I met at this job became life long friends. The hours are great for students as they are open long hours and so are very flexible.

    Cons

    All the cons you would expect at a movie theatre job. Management picked favorites.
