The managers were rude and had anger issues. They hire pedophiles and do not care about their employees. A coworker/friend of mine who was 15 at the time was groomed and sexually assaulted by a 29 year old employee. Do not recommend working here.

My experience over the past three months working at AMC Framingham has helped me develop interest in pursuing a career as a full-time waiter. This is mainly because my favorite part of working at the theater is to run food from the kitchen to the customers in the theaters. My co-workers are also very kind and understanding people!

Pros and Cons
Free popcorn and drinks, friendly co-workers, accommodating work environment, free showtimes
Customers asking too many questions, workplace busy during the holidays,

I worked at AMC Stones River 9 for two years, I started out making $7.75 and left making $9.79 in a leadership position. I left due to the GM, Katie, telling me I don't hold myself or my crew to a high enough accountability after two years of working my butt off for that building while making less than $10/hour. The other managers and crew are amazingly good people. However, Katie would rather read some corporate script than talk to us like we're humans. I got another job that paid me more and when I asked to say on for one day a week, Katie told me she put it up for review. After she told me that I finished out my two weeks and will never work for her again.

Pros and Cons
Two free tickets to any show while off the clock and an awesome crew.
Cussed out by customers, high stress, living paycheck to paycheck and constantly underappreciated.
