Dont do it. I worked at amc for 7 years the managers are over worked under paid and corporate doesnt care
Corporate companies fuck you. Anytime you get promoted your raise will be laughable. The only reason to take the job is for how it looks on paper. If youre at comperable job now I wouldnt bother. Anything where you have a store front talking with customers is pure shit
I worked for AMC Theatres as a manager and at corporate. They do not pay well and you have to deal with way more stress than you should. Otherwise it's a normal retail-like bullshit job.
I work at an independent theater, have been a manager for 3 and a half years and only got one raise and that's because I kind of begged for it and it was only 50 cents. I make 8.50 an hour and I overwork my ass off. Yes free movies are great and being able to watch movies early is nice, but I've been dying to get out of it for a long time
I prefer it to most other jobs I have but you do have to put up with a lot of bullshit. But that's not unique to the theater industry.

I worked at AMC for a bit. I saw free movies on weekdays, the work was easy, and I smoked with my coworkers, but thats where the pros ended. I would've basically never got a raise, it was impossible for me to request any days off, and had to work every holiday. I knew people who worked there for three years and only made 50 cents more an hour than me.
Don't do it. I worked at a Carmike for three years. I loved the free movies, hated everything else about the job. It was miserable.
Don't do it. Trust me, I thought working at a theater would be the best thing ever, and now I rarely go to the movies.
my buds just complained about all the older crowds and said it was pretty spotty
Don't. I worked at an AMC for ~3 years. The managers are way over worked, and the employees are the fucking worst.
I worked at a theater chain recently. I agree with people here, you aren't paid a lot, and as your responsibilities increase, pay doesn't always match what you sometimes have to deal with. That being said, the people were cool, it was a fun environment to be in, lots of talking movies and seeing movies (we got 4 passes per day which was clutch). I wasn't a manager, but I saw/heard about all they did. I dunno, I say give it a whirl!
I worked at an AMC for two years. It was miserable.
Low pay. They dont pay overtime. And the staff and other managers will resent you because you came from the outside and weren't promoted from within.
In the late 90s, I worked for carmike cinemas.
While I never got to management level, I saw how badly run the company was.
They over spent money building theatres that they would close 3-5 years later because of debt.
Amc seems to have their crap together, hopefully.
Does this job pay more money gan your current job? Does it seem like something you would like? If the answer to both is yes rhen givenit a try but leave your current job on a good note in case tou need to go back.
