AMC is a great company to work for...if you are young. Working in leadership at AMC is VERY demanding and will require long hours that are not set or consistent. You will learn a lot, there are several departments to oversee as well as the day-to-day operations. There is never a dull moment, and the team around you will be second to none. However, if you are looking for a good work-life balance, you will not find it here. You will find great hard working people. You will find some room for advancement (Lots if you are able/willing to relocate). It is a great job if you are just starting out or if you are looking to stay with one company for a long time.
MANAGER (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – October 15, 2018
I started working the door but moved into hiring. They promote if you stay long enough and show that you care. There is a culture that can be both fun and stifling. It's not meant for people to stand out
Chances to advance
Can be stifling and maybe a little boring at times

Typical day would be to make sure all employees are working and not standing around. make the schedule every week and inventory. Hardest part of the job was when the alarm sounded or the movie stopped. Overall I did enjoy working there until it closed down.

the company has a great mission and drive. customer and employee oriented, the culture is upbeat and friendly. only complaint lies in management and lack of support and resources for small and/or remote theaters from cooperate

The job always tried to be flexible with hours especially for students. They offer multiple opportunities for advancement from within. I learned a lot about working with the public and dealing with very busy times. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with the public.

The largest cinema chain in the world and they use loop holes to cheat employees. No overtime paid in Ohio (state law loop holes exploited), no holiday pay yet expected to work ALL holidays and they keep you at 28 hours a week so they don't have to offer health insurance even though that's not a federal policy anymore. If you call off for any reason, illness, family emergency, ect., you are given a written disciplinary action. This is even with getting your shift covered. Management is not permitted to ever call off or be absent for any reason.

If you have by sort of autonomy whatsoever, it will be stripped away as you rise higher in the ranks of AMC. They want everything, including employees, cookie cutter.
They don't understand small markets and it shows in theaters built in smaller cities. As a manager, you are told you own the building and to treat it as such. What is meant is that you are a scapegoat for all problems had. And that travels downhill.
Free movies. Free popcorn.
Never wanting to see those movies because it invloves being inside the soul crushing place you work.
Manager (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 29, 2018
Overall AMC is fun first job with flexible schedules and the opportunity to move up pretty quickly if desired. You have to deal with a lot of people coming in. Most are very friendly and happy, yet there are those few that are just miserable who seem to want to make everyone else just as miserable. Free movies and screenings! Great coworkers. As AMC is growing, it is becoming very sales oriented. Crew are required to pitch AMC Stubs to every guest.

Wanna get your foot in the door to start working this is great! I worked my way up when the opportunity came. Depending on you manager it could be a good experience. You get out what you put in. Scheduling isn’t consistent at all and some days can be long depending on what movie is coming out. Get ready to spend all your holidays and weekends here.

I started at AMC just working concessions. They saw the potential in me. From there I learned ticketing, opening, closing, and how to run the projectors. I just recently was promoted to manager. If you are conscientious and are good at your job, you can move up in the company.
