AMC Theatres reviews



Rating - Job Title



Marketing Supervisor

Columbia, SC - March 5, 2020

Productive experience

Good, flexible job, a great environment, especially for a first job, that prepares you for many more specialized careers in service, management, and entertainment.


Guest Services representative

Columbus, OH - March 5, 2020

Fun place to work

I developed a greater understanding of customer service. It was a friendly environment to work in. I enjoyed interacting with the customers and training new employees.


AMC Crew Member

Overland Park, KS - March 4, 2020

good first job

They truly care about you as an individual but the pay isn’t great for someone who is living alone. it’s a great first job if you’re 14-16 but after that you’re going to need more than what they offer i have nothing but love for them


Marketing Manager

Leawood, KS - March 4, 2020

High velocity, low compensation and recognition

The company has a new product every week with the movies, but expectations to work at a level above your title without compensation is prevelant. Very few are promoted from within, they hire new. There are standard benefits and free movies are a plus.


Film Crew Member

Ridgefield Park, NJ - March 4, 2020

Film Crew

At this company I enjoyed working in the concession stand. I learned to adapt to others personalities and work quickly and efficiently under pressure; however, many of the mangers were unethical and not trained correctly.



Brandon, FL - March 2, 2020

It was just a regular job it was fun while it lasted

the job is only difficult on the weekends and holidays it's an easy job when it's dead, and the benefits of free movies made the job worth while it was a fun job.


Crew Member

Skokie, IL - February 27, 2020

Anything can happen

In seconds, a relatively dead theater can turn into the equivalent of a packed concert. Being able to complete tasks quickly and efficiently is a must. There are definitely easier days and rushes are bearable, just be prepared to tackle any issue that gets dished out. you'd be surprised at some of the problems you'd have to face.


Crew Leader

Indianapolis, IN - February 26, 2020


A lot of the managers are willing to help you succeed but most are just there to bring stress The pay is too low for the amount of work and hours I put in


AMC Crew Member

Hodgkins, IL - February 24, 2020

Good first job

Everybody was nice for the most part and very understanding. From management to the crew everybody had some sort of teamwork ethics which I appreciated. My only complaint was the pay being under minimum wage.


Marketing Supervisor

Columbia, SC - March 5, 2020

Productive experience

Busser/Food Runner

Chadds Ford, PA - February 21, 2020

Busy and good environment

I either was either a busser or runner and both positions were decent. The other employees were nice to get along with. The managers helped but sometimes didn't do too much.



Seattle, WA - February 21, 2020

Pretty Okay

It isn't a hard job, fantastic for someone just entering the workforce or looking for part time work while they attend school. Don't expect to make a career out of it, and don't expect to stay there very long: you will eventually get sick of retail. The company likes to promote from within and the discounts on food and the free movie tickets are fantastic. In terms of theater jobs, it is a better company to work for than a lot of others.



Dublin, OH - February 19, 2020

Good High school/ College job

Great for people still in school. Managers were super nice. They gave you all the days you need off of, fun lace to be! Also got free movies which is always a plus.


AMC Crew Member

Houston, TX - February 19, 2020

It’s an ok job, good for one of your first

The job is ok, it isn’t hard, you just have to be a pretty quick learner bc they will throw you out there like you know stuff already and expect you to keep up.


Concession Worker, Box Office, Usher

Castle Rock, CO - February 19, 2020

Good working environment for a first job.

This job was perfect for a high school student wanting to make a little money. Nothing about this place was off or not fun to work at. I have not worked there in four years so I am not sure how it is now. But I am sure it has not changed much.



Olean, NY - February 19, 2020

Not Bad

I actually mostly enjoyed working here even though I felt a bit out of place with some fellow employees, maybe that's my fault, I don't think it was. Certain people were really awful but most of management at the time was really great!


Marketing Supervisor

Holly Springs, NC - February 12, 2020

Fun place to work, decent pay

The management was pretty decent, except for a few people. Overall work day was pretty easy. The meals that were being prepared were easy to learn. The pay was pretty good, and you have the opportunity for overtime.


Crew Member

Hoover, AL - February 11, 2020

Great 1st job but terrible pay

I definitely learned a lot at this job. I enjoyed being around my co-workers all the time. I never felt completely alone. However, the pay was absurdly low for the amount of work I put in. It's moderately easy to work your way up in the company. The hardest part was the rushes and horrible customers. The lines would be out the doors almost every weekend. I enjoyed the fast-paced environment and the number of hours I was getting. They gave me tons of hours (25+ per week). I got paid bi-weekly and made minimum wage. I also enjoyed moving around. We all rotated between box office, concession, usher, and podium.
