    Pros

    Free movie tickets is hands down the best perk. As a Box Office Cashier, I dealt with the public. In my experience, I can count on one hand how many irate customers I've had. I love assisting people and being able to share my enthusiasm about the movies. They offer a pension plan too if you retire there. Yearly raises based on evaluations. Most of the employees are super nice too. We are all supportive of one another. There is also a lot of flexibility, managers willing to work with your availability for the most part. Our location just upgraded its look so it's a comfortable setting to be around!

    Cons

    Limited work hours which isn't convenient considering you begin at minimum wage. If you advance, you don't get a raise until your evaluation. Sometimes, a certain department isn't available and you need to take on a little more responsibility, or one department is overly staffed and will need to assist a different department in which you have no idea what to do. Some employees don't share enthusiasm with the public or present no customer service skills at all. When dealing with the public, customer service is a given.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your lines of communication open. One manager had no idea that a certain product could only be bought online. It took one manager to tell me for me to tell a customer for the customer to ask a different manager and then her be dumbfounded when she realized I was right. Incorporate more of a "team-player"attitude within management and employees. Give even a slight raise when promoting internally. Try to create a better working environment for everyone just by being effective and productive. Maybe then our customer reviews can improve.

    I have been working at National Amusements (More than a year)

    Pros

    The commute to work is the big plus for me. The atmosphere with the co-workers is very cool. It's more like a Linden family. I just get great pleasure in working with the public and being able to put smiles on others faces.

    Cons

    The Union needs to do more with the funds that are being invested into that Union. Working along side lazy employees who doesn't think they should earn the dollar they're there to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Show us employees you appreciate our hard work and dedication to your business.
