    Cinema Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hoyts Cinemas.

    Interview

    First there was a group interview of about 5 people, there were probably 4 or 5 of these sessions conducted. In the group we had to make up scenarios then role-play them in pairs, taking turns being the patron or the cinema attendant. They were looking for knowledge of issues you may encounter while working there - for instance, patrons complaining of dirty seats, or prices of food, or lost tickets, the list goes on. Obviously how you dealt with them was important, but it was obvious who had prepared for the interview by the scenarios they had presented, and as long as how you dealt with them was reasonable - as they provide you with the necessary training - you were fine. In the group interview we also had to build a Lego crocodile as a team, to assess how we worked with others, who was being "carried" so to speak and who was a leader. It's best to show initiative and cooperation in these tasks. Then you are called for a one-on-one interview, which is more about your previous job experience, or how you would deal with certain situations based on prior experience in school, volunteering, sports teams etc. The interviewers also give you a list of tasks that would typically have to be done in a shift, eg serving patrons, cleaning or stocking, and ask you to rank them in the order you would do them (or from most to least important). The panel consisted of three people in the group and individual interviews.
