Pros: nice people, good money, learn a variety of skills, free taxis home
Cons: long hours, shift variations.
A typical day at the Odeon, can be very fast pace, moving between areas and sometimes getting covered in food. On other days its very relaxed and everything is done before its due.
I've learned that a smile can go along way, I love chatting with guest's and giving them the best experience. I've learned about food storage and hygiene, and more.
The – more... management at the Odeon where I work are very friendly individuals, they are prime examples of normal people who have worked their way up the company ladder.
The people I work with are fantastic, to me they make the job. They are not just my co-workers they are my friends. I socialise with my team after work and on my days off.
The hardest part of the job is the hours, because it is a cinema and open late you can sometimes work a 9am - 5pm and then a 7pm - 2am. This is the reason I want a different career.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when you satisfy a guest, the best reward you can get is someone shaking your hand and saying Thanks, its very self satisfying.
All in all its a great job, the people are nice, the jobs not bad, you get free taxis home, they can and will work around you (however they will not give you set shifts, which is what I am after), you get 40% discount and free tickets for yourself and after probation period 15 per quarter for family and friends. – less
