    I have been working at Cineplex Entertainment part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free movies
    Like my cast members
    Get along with other members of management

    Cons

    Unorganized
    Head office is full of idiots that cannot run a business to save themselves (Terrible ideas being Recroom in London, Installing Recliners to decrease capacity by 60%, World gaming)
    Head office hardly cares about managers, cast or even their own guests...They only care about the bottom line
    Always encouraged to slash hours for zero incentive and this puts a tremendous amount of stress on cast and managers

    Advice to Management

    To head office...Come up with an original idea, invest in your people because no one will stick around if you keep treating managers and cast poorly.

    Your business is dying so get some fresh minds up in head office

    Love how even when the CEO visited our theatre he asked who approved the new recliners and the tremendous capacity loss. Monkeys at typewriters I tell ye.

    I worked at Cineplex Entertainment part-time

    Pros

    The co-workers are super nice and are always there to help you. There are always room to grow within the department and move up the ladder or to a different department. You can get alot of hours. The management team is very lenient and can be understanding when you are taking days off, as long as you do it ahead of time.

    Cons

    The place can be stressful and can get depressing. You will be working during holidays and will be working passed 10pm. The pay is not good compared to the stress and work you do.

    Advice to Management

    Making the place a brighter place to work can be helpful.
