    I have been working at Event Cinemas for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Awesome benefits - 8 staff tickets per month, discounted stays at company owned hotels, staff parties and incentives and amazing people.

    Cons

    Late night shifts. However, can be a pro depending on your study situation or if you are looking for a job with flexible hours for other reasons.

  2. "Stay away unless you want a casual uni job."

    I worked at Event Cinemas for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Discounted tickets and accommodation at hotels also owned by Event group. Flexibility due to long opening times (good for uni students) Friendly coworkers (mostly) Less aggressive customers than some other retail and hospitality jobs.

    Cons

    A lot of weekend work without penalty rate pay. Middle to upper management are largely incompetent and have been promoted on the basis of who they've sucked up to, rather than competency. Little to no further training Casual work so unreliable hours, not steady enough to pay the bills if you live out of home. If your boss takes a liking to you you'll do well at Event, otherwise forget it. I was with the company for nearly 8 years and ended up resigning due to unresolved bullying from my boss. Higher up's just took his word for 'what I really meant' when it was clear that was not the case. I have found out he is targeting another employee now. Upper management trying to pit staff against one another.

    I worked at Event Cinemas part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Interesting work environment. Good hours for student, parent returning to work or secondary employment. Opportunities for marketing and promotional work. Opportunities for promotion from entry level to junior management (but at site level only). Opportunity for additional hours and experience at other locations. Great group of like minded happy colleagues. Cheap tickets and food are nice.

    Cons

    Too much cost cutting and cutting corners. Sacrifices staff morale for bottom line. In general, staff overworked, underpaid and unappreciated. Management invokes rules and policies that employees are expected to adhere too however when a customer challenges, management side with customer and humiliate staff. Nepotism and inappropriate staff relationships are rife. No support from corporate office when it comes to personnel issues. Salary is less than working at a supermarket.
