Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 24 June 2013
Working at Cineplex Odeon has been a great experience for me and still is. The environment is very chill but at the same time everyone works very hard and works together as a team to ensure that everything runs smoothly. The managers are very understandable and the coworkers are all very friendly. I enjoy everything about working here
CAST MEMBER (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 22 April 2017
Management was never understanding and would not make accommodations. Management showed favoritism and gave special treatment to their favorites. Although it was very flexible when it came to hours, that is if they ever give you any good luck with that if you aren't a favorite.
Cast Member (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 20 April 2017
This was my first job and I absolutely loved it. Everyone - cast, team leaders and management - were all a close group. We would have tons of outings and even little games nights and stuff in the theatre. The job itself isn't a difficult one as a cast member, but be forewarned: a lot of team leaders will say that the amount of pressure put on you as a TL isn't worth the ten cent raise. Management is easy going, strict when they had to be but not unusually unfair. I was so sad when I had to leave, but we cast members still hang out all the time! Highly recommend this job, especially as a first job. The only complaint would be that theatres are open late and open on holidays like Easter and Christmas, which can be really hard to get off. Some nights you might not be out until midnight, so keep that in mind!
Make long time friends but the job is not worth it
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 18 April 2017
I had worked at cineplex for about 2 years and honestly the job is really repetitive. I like new challenges to spice up the work that i do and keep it fun, however it was never like that. The most challenges i would have would be a clogged toilet or a movie screen not working once in a while. The people there are great but the benefits suck and and you don't get to use them when you aren't working unless you are watching the movies which are free. Otherwise I would probably not stay there long. Find a job that lets you advance in positions.

A typical day at work would be going in, preparing food and popcorn merchandisers for customers to purchase. Serving guests with fast and efficient service making their visit at Cineplex enjoyable. I learned that team work is very essential in providing fast and efficient customer service. Management will always be there to guide you with any questions you have and if you're unsure about things. The workplace culture is diverse, with lots of young and fun people. The hardest part of the job is dealing with rude customers. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with people that you think as family.
CASHIER (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 17 April 2017
Fast pace with multiple tasks always learning and being able to become cross trained. Management is always fun and gives the team a back bone. The culture is very dynamic given the amount of customers everyday. The hardest part is keeping everyone and everything in time management. The job is just amazing!
Good people to work with. Management is all business.
VIP In-Seat Runner (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 April 2017
No union, no benefits (only the cast-pass when the managers feel like getting it)., being a runner in the longest hallway of all the VIPs just to get tipped out in peanuts while you work for in-seat servers that help run food/drink sometimes... But just push tablet buttons all day and clean theaters.
Sometimes they HAVE to play unpopular movies which will lead to less people and more dead days in this 3 theater hybrid restaurant-theater place. Before I left they started hosting events and photoshoots for people just to get revenue up.
Only apply for this job as an in-seat server near when a hype movie comes out otherwise you will waste your time, energy, and money.
Cast Passes / 1 bag of popcorn & 1 small fountain drink
4.5 hour shifts / Viewing awful movies that no one wants to watch / Nagging to get a cast pass /

faced paced on mostly Fridays, Saturdays and holidays, other weekdays are slow days. You are expected to multitask various duties. Management was questionable at times at how you were treated, but nonetheless they did their best to make your work experience the best it could be. Plus you get free movies.
Part-time employee (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 March 2017
a typical day at my job at cineplex is working at the box office. i usually sell tickets and process refunds. the guests are probably the worst part of the job because they get mad over every little things. management is ok. they give us short hours and barely any shifts in the summer which sucks.
Cast Member (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 30 March 2017
Cineplex is a great part time job that allows you to grow within the company. They have a great atmosphere and it is an awesome first job. It allows you to gain experience and the management is friendly and willing to work with you!
Server (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 29 March 2017
Great place for part time work! Fun, exciting people to spend hours with. Out Takes is a fast paced section of cineplex, handling food and dealing with customers is first priority. Closing is time consuming making for late nights; all dishes must be washed, food taken out, garbage's emptied, surfaces cleaned and everything locked up. There is a great team in place, so every staff member becomes a good friend.
Cast Member (Current Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 28 March 2017
It can be busy but it can also be slow. Most managers are kind, understanding and will understand your concerns. I do enjoy working here but there are the off days. Benefits are hit and miss and rules regarding them are a little askew. You may get some information regarding discounted food that may contradict other information.The trainer we have is fantastic and very friendly but our team leaders are kind of just there and don't really offer much guidance. You can get some pretty steady hours and can always pick up shifts if needed. Hours can go late which is bad for high school students who have to wake up early for school the next day. Cash incentive has actually been taken away and replaced with a point system which can be redeemed for prizes. It is a good first job but probably better to go with retail experience first in case this job doesn't work out. Always good to have a second job as well because only people who have been promoted get raises. I have been there for a long time and still only make minimum wage.
