    I worked at Omniplex Cinema full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Loved every minute and would go back in a heartbeat. Should never have left. CEO was a great mentor and I was very well looked after. Had to leave only due to ill health of a family member. But I really didn’t want to leave. Despite what others say.

    Cons

    Very long hours but very enjoyable.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff on the floor. Reward them as they work extremely hard

      I have been working at Omniplex Cinema full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Friendly well organised and well run business. Brand new site & building. Never 2 days the same. 2 free staff passes a week. All Staff are friendly and fun to work with.

      Cons

      Late nights don't bother me although that would be a con for many. Disadvantage having to clean up after people whom obviously don't know where their mouths are.

      Advice to Management

      Manager is fantastic, approachable, friendly and will work around you as best possible. No complaints for upper management. All runs well.

      I worked at Omniplex Cinema part-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Relaxed atmosphere, apart from busy new release nights

      Cons

      Low pay, zero hour contract and never enough hours, again unless there are lots of new releases you wont get many hours

      Advice to Management

      Nice team, but need to get rid of the zero hrs contracts and give people guaranteed working hours & days

      I worked at Omniplex Cinema part-time

      Pros

      There wasnt really much substantial pros , *You get to help yourself to eating out of the popcorn warmer during your shift when its quiet. *staff discount on carbonated drinks @90 cent but they taste awful *You might get invited to see private staff showings of new releases after the cinema has closed , but its usualy only if the manager likes the film which in my case she sometimes chose terrible films ....

      Cons

      So many to choose from but ill keep it short . *uniforms are tacky lose fitting and smell terrible and you have to wear a hat . *you have to clean screens covered in filth by absolute pigs with no moral sense of disposing of waste . *Youre expected to work as a plumber and bathroom attendant also and unclog toilets with your arm *Shift hours are terrible management and supervisors suit them selves and...
