    I worked at Cineplex Entertainment part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazing company culture Lots of training Friendly management Friendly staff Feeling of belonging to a family Free movies for you and your friends Discounts for snacks

    Cons

    Unfortunately the company offers a small salary. The reason is that the job is fairly easy to perform and the schedule is very light and flexible (most people are part time workers). But if you are looking for a transitional/holiday job that will help ease the change from student to worker or you're an immigrant looking to settle, this is the perfect place to go.
