    I have been working at National Amusements part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I love all of the staff members I work with. We all work well together like a family and have fun while doing so.

    Cons

    Management needs to care a little bit more about the needs of the venue and staff and take us more seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Treat us as you'd like to be treated

    I worked at National Amusements part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It could be worse. it has it's busy days and it's slow days. Lots of multitasking in the fast food area, which isn't so bad if communication is good. Some of the managers were really awesome.

    Cons

    Lack of communication, under compensated managers being spread too thin, they don't care about ants in the chili. If you work there, you should care. Some of the managers had some serious emotional issues they took out on the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Find a better job, you are better than this. Don't talk to your employees like they're kids unless they deserve it. Fight to not have to call your managers "Mr." and "Mrs." last name, it's 2015, it's outdated.

    I worked at National Amusements part-time

    Pros

    The ability to get free movie passes for yourself and family and friends. Free popcorn was a nice touch also. 401k plan

    Cons

    I the pay wasn't so great. Not enough money to make ends meet. Some weeks there weren't enough hours to ensure a decent paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure more work hours, raise the salary for all positions, offer more incentives, a holiday bonus, a company appreciation day wouldn't hurt either.


  6. Hours drop after a month. Some locations shutting down.

  7. Learned a lot about business and people.

    Pros

    Free movie tickets. I do love movies, and it's nice to not have to pay to see them. Food discounts while on duty is good too.

    Cons

    Hiring quality staff is not a priority, and it shows in online customer reviews. Sometimes it seems that corporate doesn't really care.

    Advice to Management

    Offer good pay and benefits to hourly employees. You'll attract people who want to work hard and do a good job. Be proactive in inclement weather and close theaters. Nobody should risk their life to see a movie. Take more time to properly implement new ideas (iPad menus are pointless if you can't use them to place an order). Recognize and reward the employees who work hard instead of driving them to quit. If the vast majority of your employees are looking for another job, you could probably be doing things better.


  8. At least you get free movie passes

    I have been working at National Amusements part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get free movie passes!!

    Cons

    You work your butt off for such a low wage that you wonder why you even still work there. Then you remember the free passes.

    Advice to Management

    If you want your employees to be motivated, if you want to be a better company, you should make moves. You should offer full time options to hourly employees. You should offer benefits as well. We would all work much harder if we got something for our effort in return.

    Pros

    Awesome co-workers, fun encouraging managers, promotion opportunities. Will learn lifetime experiences. Overall a fun atmosphere to be involved in. Everyday is different.

    Cons

    Customers will occasionally complain about prices but the majority are happy they are at the movies. Working holidays isn't always fun but managers offer to be as flexible as they can.

    Pros

    Some great managers. Some great coworkers. good pay and good hours.

    Cons

    Extremely unprofessional and hostile envionment. Managers are not reliable. Company cares more about profits than health of employees. They will hire people right off the streets and not provide decent training.

    Advice to Management

    Hire with experience and less hostile people. Control the professionality in the environment to ensure safety dor employees. Stop hiring and keeping lazy workers
