    I have been working at Village Roadshow full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone at the company is very friendly and is a tight knit community ready to help. Great benefits.

    Cons

    It used to be a lot more fun working at Roadshow, but now it seems like there's a lot more work with the same resources, everyone is feeling a bit burnt out.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff and ease the load to avoid the ones that are slugging it hard from leaving. The ones slugging hardest are the ones most loyal to the company, you want to keep them around.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Village Roadshow full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free movie tickets Big budget Christmas party

    Cons

    Lack of inspiring or visionary leadership. Salary is not competitive. Rigid and inflexible working conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on good talent, hire people with a vision to lead the company beyond slow declining sales that doesn't include just piggy backing off of old technology or suing your customers. Empower them to make real changes to the business that actually provide value to customers; or cling to a sinking ship.

    I have been working at Village Roadshow part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Was able to transfer between rolls, two meal breaks, cheep food and good benefits. lots of workers to cover you're shift

    Cons

    Staff are mean and spread horrible rumours so make them look better. supervisors go into your locker while your working to read your messages on your phone lock screen. no incentive to work your best. constantly getting threatened to be fired over stupid reasons like waring the wrong coloured socks or having a lunch break one minute over or under 30mins. no penalty rates for weekends and low pay and low hours.

    Advice to Management

    learn what the meaning of management is and treat your staff with respect. if a staff member makes a mistake then teach them the right or correct method.

    Only a select few of the managerial staff take their role serious. Replace the rest
