please never work for this company. Do yourself a favor treat yourself like a human being..never work here please. The management picks favorites, some will disrespect you act like you are below them complain about the most ridiculous things, your paychecks sometimes won't add up for all that hard work you put in, it's absolutely ridiculous.

I managed to work there 3 months. Worst job and pay ever. Management is shitty and hire dumbass idiots who don't wear gloves or wash their hands. Only good thing is free movies but still not worth it

General Managers

about
I worked for AMC for a very long time. Our General Manager decided he wanted a specific manager that he has worked with in another theatre chain. He has fired or moved every manager he can to try to get this one guy. He was some kind of big deal in the other theatre chain, and now in the most basic way of putting it, he depends on people to do his work for him. Recently he fired two good managers on the same day, and was angry because he still did not get the manager he wanted. One was even a married guy with kids! You do not want to work for this company. They claim they are the best of the best, but the best get fired, and the worst run the show.

To provide our guest's with the best out-of-home entertainment experience? Give me a break. I have been working for AMC for almost 3 years now. Here is a 5 reasons why you SHOULD NOT WORK at AMC Entertainment, in my experience anyways. The only benefit of working at AMC is the free movies for you and your family.

1) MANAGEMENT IS HORRIBLE. Our managers stand at Guest Services or hang out in the office. They will only help concessions if we are absolutely FLOODED with guests and the supervisors are already busy. I would say only about 1 in 4 supervisors/managers/ect actually know what they are doing and/or give a shit.
2) SEXUAL HARASSMENT: That's not even the worst part about this GM, he makes sexual jokes to the female workers. Some of them are 16 and 17, when he is like almost in his 50's. It's absolutely inappropriate and disgusting.
3) FAVORITISM is another thing you'll be able to find at AMC. Favoritism of your schedule (like where you'll be scheduled, how many hours and requests for days off), promotions, the ability to slack off and get away with it. And what do people do when they slack off?
4) GOSSIP and people TALKING SHIT about you behind your back. It's absolutely horrible at my theater, we have had lots of problems with it. One guy (who was crew at the time but JUST got promoted recently after the incident) had called his female co-worker a "piece of white trash" to her face because she had an abortion behind concession. You can have all the opinions you want on that subject, but the girl ended up crying after she got off. It was reported to management and that was it, he was promoted two months later. That is only one of many that has happened in recent months.
5) THE PAY IS TERRIBLE. Literally minimum wage. The only way you can actually make decent money if you work the maximum hours. Which may mean spending your entire week there. Not worth it.

I worked at AMC for a full year. I actually enjoyed my time there but the pay wasn't worth the drive to get to work. Working there for an extended time had no benefit either since a raise was 15 cents. Free movies were nice but if you work somewhere else you can make much more per hour.

about
Our managers spend ALL day in the office. Sure they have paperwork and things to do, but thats what they're supposed to be doing on the days they come in way before the theatre is actually open. Since they aren't on the floor they have no clue as to how half of the staff really behaves, and then gives raises/promotions to those who only do their job correctly when being monitored. Specifically: people who left work to get food without their knowledge and constantly comes in high (after smoking in their car) and cant function properly, a supervisor who says that he hates teenagers to teens getting kicked out and then agrees to fight them after his shift who also makes racist, and sexist comments, and insults gays, and a supervisor who doesn't even know how to change times. We have a projectionist that constantly lies about everything, turns lights on in theatres, and changes mylars so that they're incorrect and blames it on the ushers. He also has gone around telling everyone that our GM does all of her personal shopping online during her shifts, including and order from Adam&Eve, an adult toy website. Whether this is true or not, its highly inappropriate, both on her and his part.

Not only is management a mess, but the theatre itself is too. The fridge and freezer are always disgusting, rarely cleaned out, and filled with things that produce a rotting smell. The hot dogs are left in an open bag surrounded by this stench surely absorbing it. They don't replace the hoses for the pop, or clean them thoroughly and so it tastes disgusting. Part of this tastes also has to do with the syrup quality, and CO2 balance.

Anyone over 18 is strongly discouraged from taking breaks, and on short handed days cashiers from concession and box sometimes have trouble getting bathroom breaks, even after working over 10 hours straight, Plus, we don't get paid overtime.
