    I worked at Village Cinemas full-time

    Pros

    The company is focused on rewarding staff giving screenings and plenty of staff parties. The people are amazing at the job and the culture among staff is very friendly.

    Cons

    The decline of the cinema business has meant extreme cost cutting methods have been introduced including reducing hours worked for staff, which places more pressure on other staff to perform duties. This also means that career advancement in the business, has all but dried up.

    Advice to Management

    Head office needs to understand the affect their decisions make on frontline workers. They are way to out of touch with their own business

    I worked at Village Cinemas part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fun environment. Free movies.

    Cons

    Village put their employees last. The overall site purpose is to make money and cut costs. This means cutting staff shifts, sometimes staff were driving to work when they were called to say they were no longer needed. This made for a bad work culture.

    Advice to Management

    Please care more for the people on the site floor. They are the ones that are interacting with your customers, who bring the money in.

    Pros

    Amazing community vibe with the team. Regardless of the work, the team is very sociable and what made me enjoy going to work.

    Cons

    At a site level, innovation is slow and comes with stringent guides from Head Office. Head office are reluctant to provide approval and can sometimes act in their best interests and not that of the sites.

    Advice to Management

    Know your team; their strengths, weaknesses and everything in between. If you can master their skillset and knowing your business you will have no issues managing.
