    Working 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

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

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    I 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.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Schedule 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 ManagementAdvice

    Make schedule less variable and more flexible for employees.

    I have been working at National Amusements part-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Company 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 ManagementAdvice

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