    I worked at Cineplex Entertainment part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cineplex is honestly fun to work at. For me it was my first job and it was pretty easy to make friends quickly since there’s a lot of people working in one shift. You get unlimited free cast passes daily (free movies). If there’s something new in the outtakes menu, you’ll most likely get to make it and try it. You get free popcorn, drinks and 50% off outtakes food 30 minuets before and after your shift. There’s always at least 6-8 managers working a day so it’s easy to find one if you need them.

    Cons

    Sometimes you won’t get the hours you want, it really depends on the show times and if it’s going to be busy or not. Most times you have to book off the days 1-2 weeks in advance so you for sure get it off. With each popular movie that come out, the rushes are pretty busy. One movie can be sold out with 350 people. On a Tuesday night it can reach to 500-600 people in 2 hours since there’s multiple showings. Not everyone will order food or popcorn but it sure will be pretty busy. The rushes can get pretty long and tiring most times, the only part that really sucks about them is getting burnt by the fryer oil, gravy, butter and the cleaning right after each rush. Closing shifts can go from 5pm to past midnight on super busy days.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention and recognize the workers who take leadership into the team. A simple thank you and good job can go a long way.

    Pros

    Very Flexible with lots of employees, to trade shifts if need be. Very friendly workplace, where everyone is generally happy to work along with you.

    Cons

    Sometimes the company (managers) require a little too much for what the work involves, which isn't the worst problem but can get bad when some managers aren't consistent with their requirements.
