    I worked at Event Cinemas part-time

    Pros

    Management are fairly good at running the place and flexible with rostering staff around their busy lives, good diversity and big team so you meet many new people. Pretty good pay and opportunity for promotion/staff development. Decent training

    Cons

    Cleaning up very disgusting things left behind by customers, creepy customers but even creepier colleagues - much older male staff openly harassed younger (often underaged) female staff and management turned a blind eye to this and staff did not feel comfortable and secure talking to management who didn't seem to care about staff wellbeing. The exorbitantly high prices on tickets and food (in particular) led to very angry customers who took out their frustrations on junior staff. Either extremely understaffed during rushes or overstaffed resulting in staff having their shifts cut.

    I worked at Event Cinemas

    Pros

    It is very cruisey and easy work. Great uni job and flexible hours. I recommend if you're in your late teens/ early 20's

    Cons

    The patrons can be harsh. Things that you can't control they'll blame you. Such as, the aircon is too cold

    I have been working at Event Cinemas part-time

    Pros

    Duty Managers and Managers are very supportive and easy to talk to. Enthusiastic about encouraging staff with incentives and training. Pays tax and super, shifts well organised, always knock off on time.

    Cons

    Hardly any shifts during the school semester. Holidays get super crazy. You tend to get lumped in a trend of either day shifts or night shifts, scoop or floor, which is frustrating if you want day shifts and only get night shifts.

    I worked at Event Cinemas part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good hourly salary $2 movie tickets with maximum 8 tickets a month

    Cons

    Management are bullies You're working with you who will throw you under the bus for any sort of gratification or reward Very much a "everyone is for themselves" environment Management will punish you for taking any time off by decreasing shifts so that you can't live for up to a month No sunday rates Public holidays are 1.8x not 2.5x
