Customer Service (Former Employee) – Ottawa, On – 18 May 2014
A typical day at work would entitle getting the machines and food ready, while managing poor employee involvement. I learned how to deal with difficult customers, in addition to difficult employees who didn't want to work The management was hit and miss. Some of them did their jobs properly, while others just gave orders without doing an ounce of work themselves The hardest part of the job was probably getting through late-night rushes The most enjoyable part of the job was its perk: You could come in and watch movies for free, which is amazing considering how high the prices are.

Cast Member (Former Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 13 August 2017
This job had poor hours and often needed me to work past midnight several days in a row. The management was poor and unwelcoming, however the crew made it work it and kept the experience fun. The idea of creating a inviting movie-going environment isn't really achieve since it feels much more high stress due to managers.
mainly a highschoolers part time job, lot of fun and good management
Cast Member (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 9 August 2017
the movie theatre was one of my more enjoyable jobs, always had a good time at work even on the long busy days. my managers were great to deal with if you ever needed anything and i never had any problems working here.
work parties, good management, easy to get along with coworkers, easy job, good pay for part time highschool job
occasional rude customers, cleaning up after movies sometimes quite bad
Concession Attendant (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 3 August 2017
Or no. Just don't. Honestly this place makes me uncomfortable, worked here for 2 years with no mention of a raise above minimum wage, for any of the employees. If you get promoted you get a literal miniscule increase, and thats barely enough. Long hours, thankless work, rude customers and bosses who don't care. This is what is wrong with minimum wage work.
Cast Member (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 24 July 2017
Cineplex was my favourite job thus far. Management and coworkers made it feel more like a family than anything else. A typical day at work would consist of at least 4-6 hours of work on concession, with a mandatory break after working for 5 hours. The atmosphere was welcoming and exciting and it made me excited to go to work. I love the benefits that you get as well from being a cast member. There are screenings of new movies, and games nights, and cast appreciation days and it brought the Orion Gate family closer together.
Interactive workplace with a need for quick thinking
Team Leader / Cast Trainer - Movie Theatre (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 July 2017
A typical day would be dealing with hundred of guest and providing the proper services that they need. Things i have learned while working there is how to manage a team efficiently and how to train new members efficiently. The management team is always there to office necessary assistance and to attended to the needs of the employees. Hardest part of the job is dealing with hundred of people at once but once you've become more accustom with large numbers of people it becomes easier. The most enjoyable part of this job was being able to provide other employees the training and skills they would need to accomplish their task.

Would never know what to expect at cineplex, anything can and will happen. Pretty fun meeting new people and interacting with the guests, always nice to surround myself with positive people and environment.
The company provides a wonderful experience with also the chance to work with an amazing group of people!
Cast Trainer/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 11 July 2017
The typical day at work in Cineplex is quite fast-paced. It'll really fire you up in an un-energetic day! You could literally implement the experiences from the job for many careers open in the market. It has been a hectic but educational ride working for the company. I've built a wonderful bond amongst most of my colleagues and management. All-in-all, Cineplex produces a comfortable, enjoyable, and challenging (in a good way) working environment.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Oakville, ON – 2 July 2017
Handling cash, assisting customers, as well as showing customers to their designated theaters. I learned how to handle situations with customers and improved on my customer skills altogether. The atmosphere at Cineplex was enthusiastic and every employee, plus the managers, got along fine with each other.
Cast Member (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 2 July 2017
Most days i work Floor, I have to clean theaters after people are done watching their movies, so its not the most glamorous job in the world, but usually my co-workers and I engage in some pretty interesting conversation about anything from moves to philosophy to politics. Management is amazing at the theater i work at and perks are pretty great (Free Coffee and Free Movies)
Working at Silvercity Rhill (Cineplex) is exactly what you think it is
Cast Member (Former Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 29 June 2017
Long hours, managerial staff's attitude is condescending. The position I had there (Team Member) was the very basics of a food service/customer service position. Similar to working at Canada's Wonderland.
EMPLOYMENT/VOLUNTEER (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 29 June 2017
they've over hired, meaning there is too many staff with not enough hours. Ive had some bad expiriences with mgmnt not being respectful. they never give raises unless they have to (legal minimum is raised) and there are so many broken things that they wont fix, despite them impeding our ability to work
