I worked at National CineMedia full-time (More than a year)
-Decent company benefits
-the people are both friendly and smart
-the movie and employee culture is great
-free movie passes if you are employed at the beginning of the year
-a decent amount of parties and random other benefits
-Christmas bonus is fairly large most years
-Senior staff is very competent in sales and the overall direction of the company
-Low pay for entry level jobs
-some of the work gets boring quickly
-sales staff has unreasonable expectations put on them so their stress trickles down to everyone that deals with them; meaning all of sales operations
-very few managers have actual management training
-No room for quick growth, you have to be there at least 3-4 years before ever being considered for a promotion; however, after that the sky is the limit
-work/life balance is non-existent if you work in sales or sales operations.
Advice to Management
Don't be afraid to bring in outside speakers or training to motivate the staff more. More motivation in general would make a world of difference for the lower level employees
I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at National CineMedia (Denver, CO) in February 2017.
Contacted by internal recruiter based on my LinkedIn profile. Asked to complete a survey so they coul schedule an interview. The first question of the online survey / personality test asked for the applicant's age.
