GREAT COMPANY TO WORK FOR - THE MOST FUN YOU'LL EVER HAVE GETTING PAID

Concession Supervisor (Current Employee)
Islandia, NY

I have been working at National Amusements full-time for more than 5 years

ProsVery fun atmosphere, great management. Even though you have to work on the weekends, the people you work with make it fun and enjoyable. The management is great to work for and very hard working and dedicated

ConsWorking on the weekends, late night and holidays, low pay for as mentioned earlier it is not meant to be a career, just a fun job, maybe a second job

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Perfect for high school and college

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at National Amusements part-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe hours are very flexible and was able to give two weeks notice of time I needed off. My starting pay was higher than minimum wage and was given a raise every 6 months. Able to get bonuses through secret/mystery shoppers. Besides getting free tickets to movies it was a very enjoyable job.

ConsI didn't mind it but you will have to work weekends and holidays. They are open 365 days a year. Also on Fridays and Saturdays there are midnight showings so if you are scheduled the night shift you, the theater is open until 15 minutes after the last show starts.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Decent

Box Office Cashier (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at National Amusements part-time for more than 3 years

ProsFree movies, learn a great deal of customer service, can earn more money by winning "Mystery Shoppers".

ConsSchedule changed every week, managers hated when you wanted to switch shifts, quick turnover rates with employes, managers talked down to employees because they are mostly high schoolers.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake schedule less variable and more flexible for employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good retail job if you enjoy the industry

Concessions (Current Employee)

I have been working at National Amusements part-time

ProsFree movies are a great perk, and if you love movies, it's not a bad job.

ConsCompany is not flexible when it comes to holidays, and there is no sympathy or effort to work with you. This leads to high turnover. Wages are not great, and merit-based treatment entirely depends on the management of your theater, which is a wild card. Employees are generally afraid about the company doing bad economically, if they care.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt would not be hard to make this a great job. Put in the effort of being good to your employees.

Great benefits, but horrible managers

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at National Amusements

ProsFree popcorn and drinks on your break, which is paid, and you get four free movie tickets a week.

ConsA lot of standing on your feet. Managers also treat you like this will be your job for life. They have no respect for their employees. They also don't trust that you can do your job.

Advice to Senior ManagementRespect your employees and do a better job at screening future employees during the interview process.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Unhappy

Manager (Former Employee)
Millbury, MA

I worked at National Amusements full-time for more than 3 years

ConsHours, Shifts, No training, Minor Write-ups do not disappear 3 and your out. Lots of back stabbing going on.

Advice to Senior ManagementWake up!
