    Positive Outlook

    I worked at HOYTS part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Cheap movie tickets and discounted popcorn

    Cons

    They don’t allow you to cancel your shift even if you give advance notice. If you have an exam or SAC the next day they won’t allow you to cancel a shift to study. They are only flexible for their own benefit. Most businesses understand this works both ways.

    Advice to Management

    Somebody is going to take this further, think about how you treat your staff. Fairwork should get involved.

    I have been working at HOYTS part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Really good benefits in regards to movie tickets and candy bar items, thought restrictions often placed on these

    Cons

    Poor effort in keeping employees happy and willing to stay on Management encourage high turn overs, try to squeeze out older staff Very little inconsistency in company policy, always changing. Never communicated effectively with staff who then suffer as a result

    I have been working at HOYTS part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Co-workers are great and friendly -Cheap movie tickets

    Cons

    -Management are horrible, do not treat employees with respect. -Expected to always be available but not a lot of shifts -Shifts vary greatly from week to week -New managers poorly trained

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect. If you want to reduce staff turnover and create a pleasant atmosphere for employees then treat them the way you would want to be treated. You would be surprised how rude the managers are over small things.

    I worked at HOYTS part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Discount on tickets and food.

    Cons

    The managers are incompetent and do not work hard. They contribute to and instigate the bullying and harassment of staff members, rather than put a stop to it. The training is rushed, and they force employees to perform unsafe tasks without proper training. Company has no interest in promoting existing staff, and the pay is bad and the hours are long. Completely negative environment, which offers no personal growth.

    Advice to Management

    Actually look after your staff, as they are your best assets.
