    Pros

    Fellow team members are the highlight of this job; the vast majority are friendly.

    Free movies from the begining & discounts on food after 3months.

    Cons

    Management can be very disrespectful & even unprofessional. You can ask the same question of 3 managers and receive completely different answers or be spoken down to. The supervisors are for the most part wonderful & a select few managers are respectful & helpful, however the majority come accross as patronising, arrogant, rude & unsympathetic. You'r patience & temper can be very seriously tested at this place.

    Lack of clear communication, and when issues arise or mistakes are made its the team members who are often blamed.

    Bad decision making which impacts on team members.

    Favouritism allowing for certain staff members to dress in jeans, wear piercings or trainers on a regular basis and simply not be pulled up about it, whereas other staff members are instantly in trouble.

    Ridiculusly scheduled compulsary staff meetings e.g 10pm on a tuesday.

    Advice to Management

    Be more respectful to your staff & maybe there will be less people will quiting so often

    Pros

    - staff cast-pass you can use your cast-pass at any cineworld cinema and get 2 free tickets with it each time you go which is great for watching movies with friends.
    - 40% of all food and drinks
    - friendly staff
    - you get to work during cool events such as premiers
    - 6.41 an hour for under 21s
    - always 12hrs gap between shifts
    - nice staff room with tv, ipod docking station, microwave, iron and ironing board and fridge.

    Cons

    - only half an hours break which is not enough time to eat
    - lots of favouritism from managers meaning certain people have to suffer
    - not treated equally
    - very very rude customers
    - management treat you like your just a number
    - lots of standing around on quiet days
    - made to come in for staff meetings at crazy times like 10:30pm on a wednesday evening
    - you have to be available to work any time
    - sometimes wont finish work until 3am
    - sometimes being made to wait more than 5 hours before having a break or being forced to take brake after 2 hours.

    I worked there for over a year and had a fantastic time but in the end left because a supervisor made me cry when he refused to give me a break after 6 hours and wouldn't let me leave my till even though I was shaking and about to pass out. He shouted in my face in front of lots of customers and it was very embarrassing.

    Pros

    Good discount on food
    Free tickets to movies
    Good working hours and flexibility if you are a student

    Cons

    Working late (until 12am)
    Customers complaining about high ticket prices and not understanding how orange Wednesday works
    Hygiene isn't as high as it should be so can you might see/hear some gross things like rat/mice infestation or cockroaches
    Management aren't very proactive to fix problems even if it violates H&S regulations

    Advice to Management

    Hygiene needs to be much higher considering you are serving the general public and serving food.

    Pros

    you get to watch free films and nothing else really, job is very easy and simple for team members only.

    Cons

    This company does not care about employees and customers; business strategy is quantity not quality; they care more about selling food than films and customers and does not treat staff very well all poor management comes from the head and ends up on team members, no one cares and very poor salaries

    Advice to Management

    No point giving advice! no one bothers

  10. Good job if you are lazy and just want money
