    I have been working at Event Cinemas for more than a year

    Pros

    As a teenager, this is a great first time job. - On-the-job training with use of registers - Customer service experience - Welcoming, friendly culture - $2 movie tickets (only valid after working there for 6 months)

    Cons

    - Can get boring after a while - Some communication problems with management on latest promotions (can lead to irritated customers who ask us about deals which we were not informed about) - Understaffing during peak periods makes it a nightmare for both employees on shift and customers - If you roster time off, or swap shifts with other people, you will be punished with 0 hours or max. 3hour shifts in the following weeks

    I have been working at Event Cinemas

    Pros

    -Some truly wonderful staff work here. Really, some solid people who you can rely on, even given the understaffing by management. -Free movies, sort of.

    Cons

    - Under-appreciation of GC staff, who deal with the rudest customers on the face of the Earth. All done with a smile on their faces. I don't work in Kitchen, but the people in kitchen work relentlessly for hours on end, but I'm told they never receive any praise - management must think that all this food must appear out of thin air and arrive to their patrons, at specific times, to sold-out cinemas, on multiple days. From observation, this is more than likely because the staff in kitchen never see management, only get spoken at when a function is coming up, then they matter. - Your shifts can get cut after 3 hours if there's fewer customers. Which is kind of a kick in the teeth if it takes you more than an hour to get there, one way. - Morale. I've personally never had any run-ins with management, or had any personal problems with them. But my coworkers have, and their opinions should matter. Many, including myself, come to work knowing that it's going to be busy, knowing that it's going to be understaffed, and knowing they're going to be working the labour of 2 people or more and becoming immensely fatigued as a result. Try that for a few days on end.
