    Interview

    A few rounds of face to face meeting. Overall a good experience but felt they weren't too interested in the interview process. Was really interested in the position, but found it hard to connect with the people conducting the interview. Lots of questions regarding experience.

    Frontline Crew Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HOYTS (Forest Hill, Victoria) in September 2016.

    Interview

    First, there was a group interview. 20+ of us were divided into 3. First, a personality test is done which determines what kind of bird you are. An eagle, peacock, owl, or dove. Each bird has different personalities but it doesn't matter what you get. After the personality test, you introduce yourself to everyone in the group interview, then, we move on to a scenario kind of test which determines how well you work in a team. You discuss customer care and how well you can serve customers better with your group, then after that, it's the one on one interview which doesn't take too long.
    TIPS
    You really have to be confident and always smile. Keep a loud voice. Engage in conversations in your group, and rehearse what you will say for your one on one interview because they'll most likely first ask who you are and what you do.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at HOYTS in September 2016.

    Interview

    Had to complete an online application and also post a 2 minute video selling popcorn.
    Then called into a group interview that was 2 hours with three tables of 6 people.
    At the group interview we did a personality quiz that highlighted the type of bird we were and then had to introduce ourselves saying our name, the bird we got, and a cool fact.
    After we got pictures of various things you see at the cinema and we have to put it in a unique order and present to the rest of the group.
    Then we had 1/1 interviews which were good and they basically went through your resume and just asked some simple customer service questions.
