    Pros

    Flexible, friendly coworkers, workload isn't a lot, great employee perks and discounts,

    Cons

    - Relatively low pay - Favouritism within management as most managers were previous workers that have been promoted so they always favour their friends and older staff - Some managers made their dislike towards new staff rather obvious - Some managers could be rather snarky and standoffish at times - Skills gained at Hoyts aren't extremely beneficial or relevant when hunting for other jobs
