    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 part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Casual staff are amazing and friendly -Great staff discounts on movie tickets + food + drinks -Lovely General manager

    Cons

    -Management are very power crazed. Most of them walk around like they’re kings and queens and the rest of us are just peasants...aside from the handful of staff which are their favourite. The favourites also get the most hours and are treated like gods gift. Managers have been known to take shifts away for reasons such as someone saying they were tired to come into work in a group chat which was shown to a manager, who then cut that persons shift. Managers can be very gossipy and two faced. -Very restricted hours -Punished with no shifts or minimum 3hour shifts if you book work off occasionally
