Pros: coworkers, discount on food, good training, room for advancement, tuition assistance, free movies, great student job
Cons: late closing shifts, busy movie premiere nights, hard time booking days off
Begin your shift in either Concession, Floor, Box Office, or whatever restaurant is placed there. In Concession, you would process restaurant and movie ticket orders during the time that those other two areas are closed (day shifts).
Grab a till. You would be welcoming guests to your theatre, promoting combos, asking if they'd like butter, and asking – more... them for their SCENE Card if they have one. Do cleaning and re-stocking as needed.
Excellent training (both online and in person) that ensures you know how to do your job. I have learned a great deal of guest-service skills and learned how to work well under pressure. You learn how to handle large groups of people efficiently and learn how to deal with difficult guests.It is important for you to have no variances on your till.
Management is good. Many usually stay for a long time. They know what to do in situations and are always around for questions. Coworkers are great. The description they ask for online when you apply is exactly what they are looking for. You should be energetic, outgoing, friendly, and have great people skills. Your coworkers are like that as well; it creates a wonderful family-like atmosphere! Team environment!
Hardest part: Late closing shifts, hard time booking off days (many employees so you need to book those off quickly!), counting a lot of money, long rush periods/long lines on big movie premiere nights
Enjoyable part: Coworkers, 50% discount on food, FREE MOVIES, discount on other brand products, tuition assistance, you'll never miss a break, easy to give shifts away if you have test days, easy to get more hours by taking someone's shift, good training, pretty straight-forward and easy job, lots of room for advancement, and although the place can be busy you'll have many others working so it's definitely a team environment. There are also Cast Events that you can go on and get to know the rest of your team.
I have already recommended working at Cineplex to others and some have been hired and love it there too. It's a great starting job for students. Great environment to be in. – less
