AMC We make Smiles Happen (Not for your employees)
I've worked at a theater location since 2015, I am speaking from many years of experience. When I started working here we weren't know as AMC Theaters, it was Carmike Cinemas. Carmike got bought out and switched to AMC brand in April of 2017. AMC has completely taken all fun out of what it's like to work at a theater. At AMC you will be known and graded for one thing. Selling Stubs, what's annoying is by company standards they think anyone will sign up for it. The truth is they won't and I'm going to explain why. AMC Insider, is a absolute joke of a rewards program. It's 100% but the benefits are almost 0. Basically you've got to spend $250 to get a $5 reward, it waves tickets online if you've got 3 or more people in your party which I guess is kinda useful for a family. AMC Premier is the knight in shining armor. AMC is desperately trying to find new ways to brainwash the customer/guest into buying it. You will be worshiped as a God by among management for selling them and will constantly expected to sell them for every 10 guest you help. However depending on how your theater looks seat wise and or screen wise it might not be a place a guest would want to return. I came from an out dated theater and I wouldn't wanna go to a place I didn't find comfortable to sit and enjoy a movie in. This is all the cooperation cares about that's it. You could save someone from a burning projection booth and they'd still congratulate whoever sold the most Stubs that day over you. You'...more
ProsFree movie tickets and discounts
ConsExpecting to sign up everyone for rewards.

its an eh job
My time at AMC has been a rollercoaster. each theatre is different. Each membe of Managemant is different. The last location i was in was a mess. Favoritism throughout Upper Management (GM/SM) was very noticable. Compensation was very low for the amount of work done.

No Room for Growth and Breaks Federal Law
I used to work for AMC Theatres in Grapevine and Highland Village. They would let minors use the oven at AMC Highland Village, which is against federal law. Also, they never let you go on break, which is also the law if you work more than four hours.

Productive Job
It was a nice job and my first call center job. Very faced paced and repetitive. It was slightly easier because we didnt process and kind of payments, we could only add points to accounts.
Prosgood management
Consshort breaks

Horrible work/life balance
Working nights and weekends, you have little to no tie to yourself. A good job if you work during the day and need something to supplement your income

No raises but fun when the stop program first came out they were relentless I'm trying to sell that card made it really uncomfortable other than that the free movies it was good

Questions And Answers about AMC Theatres

Do you get paid biweekly
Asked Nov 2, 2016
It is once every two weeks. It won't include the week you most recently worked. The payroll week goes by the film week which starts Fridays and ends Thursdays. so every other Thursday, you will receive your direct deposit. If you have a federal bank like USAA for example, you will receive your payment a little sooner like Wednesday instead.

How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at AMC Theatres? What are the steps along the way?
Asked Jun 20, 2016
Because of the nature of the application (all done online with assessments) the application takes about a week or two before it is able to be seen by the theater. Applications are automatically flagged as "Green" "Yellow" or "Red". Red means you failed the application and are unable to be hired. You can try again in 90 days I believe. If you are Yellow or Green, the theater is able to proceed with the interview process. I always recommend waiting a week or two and then calling the theater when it won't be busy (10am - 5pm Mon, Wed, Thur, Fri) and asking for a manger to inquire about the status of your application.

I applied for the job on Saturday. Got called back for an interview on Monday. Had the interview on Thursday. And got offered a job on the spot, same day.

What is the interview process like at AMC Theatres?
Asked Jun 20, 2016
You get a phone interview with one of the supervisors or managers, they will go over guidelines with you about dress code, hair, tattoos, piercings, etc. then they will proceed to go on with simple questions to get a gist of how you are as a person. They are looking for happy/upbeat crew members. If you pass that part they will give you an in person interview to come in and usually if you pass that interview they will let you know that day or the following day.
