    Cinema Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in North Lakes
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Event Cinemas (North Lakes) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was a very lengthy one.
    They started with a group interview process - because this was a new store 1000+ people had been accepted for an interview and the queue for an interview number was crazy! (I waited almost an hour just to get an interview time)
    There were about 20 or so people in each group and there were three sections to the interview
    1) everyone in the room stood up and introduced themselves (name, age, where you were from, favourite movie/actor & why)
    2) we were paired up and had to get to know as much about the person as we could before we had to stand up in front of the group and convince the interviewers why they should be hired - those who had a good laugh and fun with it did really well - confidence
    3) we each had to sell a random product - less about sales skills and more about how you can hold yourself and talk on the spot.

    A select few from each group then made it through to a one on one interview with managers/staff from other cinema locations.
    They asked more in depth questions here and got to know more about you and your work history and why you wanted to work at the cinema.

    Various Positions Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Perth, Western Australia
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Event Cinemas (Perth, Western Australia) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email back within a week inviting me to a group interview. There were I'd say about 500 people there, and I luckily arrived an hour early and still waited an extra hour for my interview. Some people waited until 3pm, and got there at 9am, it was a very messy situation. The interview ran for about half an hour and had lots of people in each. I didn't like the format or the activities asked. It was a lot of on the spot speaking infront of the group, no questions on your abilities or experience were asked. I'd say if you are invited to such a big interview process it's mainly just luck, as only 5/30 were asked to stay behind and it was purely if you bonded with the interviewee. Good luck if you get an interview, just don't expect your experience to help you through this one, it's a lot of on the spot thinking and selling random objects the group. No questions are asked of you, apart from introducing yourself and what your favourite movie is.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Event Cinemas in December 2018.

    Interview

    Was seated in a group of 10. We each had to go one by one and say our name and age and our favourite movie and why. We then had to pair and sell ourselves to the partner which they would repeat back to the group. After that we were given a random object and had to sell it to the group in any way possible

    They then went away and selected who would be held back for individual interviews

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Event Cinemas (Liverpool) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Started off with an introduction of yourself and saying which actor/ress you would choose to take the role as you in a film. Afterwards, everyone was asked to take a random object from a box and take 5-10 minutes to create a sales pitch for it. If you're "lucky", your interviewer will split you into groups and tell you to build a tower out of posters

    Christmas Casual Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lismore, New South Wales
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Event Cinemas (Lismore, New South Wales) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied earlier in the year and got a surprise phone call as they keep applications on file. The phone call was a week before the interview and I got to choose what time I would like. The group interview was with myself and 5 other people we were all interviewed together and separately during a team building exercise of making a tower out of news paper.
    Personally I got a second interview which was singular but my availability failed me.
    For a group interview you should speak up and be confident even if you normally aren't, behave as a leader and talk to everyone!
