    I have been working at Cineplex Entertainment part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Flexible Schedule
    -Good colleagues
    -Team Oriented
    -Free movies/popcorn/drink (including Timmies coffee)
    -Room to grow (up your rank)
    -Paid break
    -Paid Vacation (2weeks)
    -Employee events (outings/parties)
    -If you work at the timmies, you get to try new treats for free
    -Most managers and supervisors are kind and got your back when facing undesirable customers (rude/violent/straight out crazy customers)

    Cons

    -Not the job for you if you can't be on your feet for 5+ hours
    -You may face violent/rude customers from time to time so if you're the type to be confrontational, this job isn't for you
    -Job (depending on your section/timmies/concessions/resto/floor/box etc.) can feel repetitive and boring when there are no guests to serve (this can be a good thing if you're not into a fast-paced environment)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the encouraging and kind attitude, though please take situations seriously when employees inform you of issues concerning the workplace both physically and mentally when it comes to certain employee's behaviour.

    Pros

    The people you work with are usually pretty fun, especially since there are so many people at work. Free movies when you want!! Managers pretty laid back.

    Cons

    Usually understaffed so we work especially hard to make up for it lots of nights. Customers are crazy rude to people in cinemas... start off with very few hours for the first few months.
