Cineplex is a good place for anyone who's looking to work for the first time, as they provide flexibility if you ever need to change your availability, However, there is a guideline your availability must meet (Friday evenings, Saturday and Sunday all, Tuesday nights/one additional weeknight) for you to receive shifts, but a talk with management can also help if your availability can't meet all these requirements. Crowds and busy days are a constant thing you will see on busy nights, especially with new movies opening on Friday nights, so you must be able to work in a busy and fast-paced environment. You will also be interacting with a lot of people at once, from guests, cast leaders, managers and fellow cast members. There are many opportunities for advancement, such as cross-training on different units, as well as promotions to Cast Leader, Cast Trainer, Teller, Manager, etc. Free movies are also a pro with the cast passes you can ask for every 2 weeks (you allowed to ask for one pass per pay cheque). Lousy guests and dismissive management teams can make shifts difficult, but you also learned essential skills, such as team work, communication, and organization.
