Guest Services Team Member, Concessionist (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 13 January 2014
Working at the Cineplex has been such an amazing experience! I love everyone I work with and the job. It gives me the opportunity to work in a fast pace environment and meet new guests, as well as see regulars!
Cashier, cook, guest services (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 23 June 2017
the job was full of gossip from both management and cast members. even though we were promised a raise I never saw mine. the guests are easy but management is not understanding and often criticizes you for the smallest of issues that are not in your control.
CAST MEMBER/CINEPLEX SOUTH EDMONTON CINEMAS (Current Employee) – South Edmonton common – 6 June 2017
they give you about 4 to 5 hours a week with minimum wage. This company is the most cheap company ever. Even when they give lots of shifts they cut the shift so u only receive 3 hours. U will NEVER GET A RAISE AFTER WORKING 3 YEARS.
Workplace with opportunities to be trained in multiple different units in the theatre.
Cast Member (Current Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 5 June 2017
You will be expected to learn concession and floor units at the beginning of the position. You are expected to be a courteous, efficient, and helpful employee. I learned retail skills such as handling cash, cleaning responsibilities, and guest service skills. The hardest part of the job would be the lack of time to prepare for each week in your daily life, as you find out your weekly schedule three days before it begins. The most enjoyable aspect is the flexibility in hours and the option to trade shifts with coworkers. Overall, a good first part-time job.
Free movies, trade shifts option
Long hours, find out weekly schedule three days before
No loyalty, no advancement, just expendable worker robots
Cast Member (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 31 May 2017
You're an expendable worker cog in the Cineplex machine, underpaid and far undervalued as an employee.
No loyalty whatsoever, and even management is full of the same high school clique mentality they strive to eliminate from their underlings.
Very untrustworthy people, very unappreciative. Just make them money for their overpriced concessions and movie tickets they raise to compensate (blame) for the minimum wage. High profits, dirt wage for the quantity of work.
Concession, Floor, Box Office (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 10 May 2017
Cineplex is a great company but the management really enjoys to sit back and just watch and talk rather then help when its needed. they would help when it got overly busy. other than that it was a great work environment and we always got everything that needed to be done, done. I worked in every part of Cineplex but towards the end I was put in the box office to I sold tickets and helped customers with their issues and did my best to fix them. I also did a lot of work on the till.
Cast Member (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 7 May 2017
It was a good experience to have as a first job, it taught me team work, time management skills and negotiation skills. The hours were not favorable however it was possible to work around it. Would recommend this as a first job.
Cast Team (Former Employee) – Belleville, ON – 3 May 2017
A typical day at work here is constantly having your superiors telling you to do things and then going back on it. They did not care for me as a worker and constantly booked outside of my availability while i was a college student and it was my problem that i couldnt get to work not theirs. There were some great things like the staff you worked with and the customers were always fantastic.
