    Casual Team Member Interview

    Interview

    I applied about 2-3 months before I finally got an email from the assistant manager at the branch I applied to. They must have kept applications on file when they refer to people to invite to an interview. In the email, they said that I was 1 in over 100 people who applied. I was given a time and date where I needed to go into a group interview and if successful, I would move on an individual interview.

    In the group interview, the 11-13 of us who were asked to attend were sat in the front row of the cinema. I was told later that there were another two groups over the same size being interviewed with the same procedure as us. There was talk that only around 5-6 people were actually be employed.

    At the group interview, we were first asked share our name, where we’re from, our favourite movie and if anyone could play us in a movie who would it be and why. The next thing we did was a get to know each other/introduce the other person game. We basically had to share our partners answers and vice versa. After that, we did an activity where we were split into groups of 3-4 and we were given a pen and a large piece of paper. The activity was to as a group, identify and write down as many uses of a paper clip, being as extreme as you want. Then we did the same thing but with a peg. The final activity that we did was selling an item as something that it’s not, in a pair or group of three.

    Once that was over, we waited around for about 5-10 minutes while the manager and assistant manager deliberated and decided who would continue on into the individual interview stage. I was successful in reaching the individual interview. The interviews went for about 15 minutes each and consisted of a few personal questions, scenario questions and questions about the actual event cinema company. They then asked if I had any questions that I wanted to asked which I jumped at the chance to with my main questions being about how long shifts were, uniform, etc. At the end of the interview, they said they would contact me in a week to tell me if I got the job or not.

    I got a phone call on the Friday the next week, congratulating me on the job and inviting me to an induction where I would be given more information, complete a bunch of general admin, given a tour and discuss the cinemas procedures and values.

    Applied online. Two or so weeks later I got an email inviting me to a group interview - there were only two being held, both that day.
    I arrive, there's about twenty of us. We're sat down in a semi-circle and listen to about an hour of the managers hyping up the company. Then we're asked a question or two - basically a summary of us (name, age, job experience, why we chose events) and our favourite movie. There's also some discussion of what customer service means to us. Also an exercise where you have to sell the person next to you on why they deserve the job.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Event Cinemas (Auckland, Auckland (New Zealand)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Interviewer was nice, but didn't know I was called in on the day of the interview. There were some miss communication between the managers. Overall it was decent, but some questions were irrelevant to the job. I wish it was focused on the job more than the general.
