Customer Assistant (Former Employee) – Shepherds Bush – 16 February 2019
Working at Vue if you are under the age of 21 is a waste of time because for the amount you get paid an hour for the hard labour that you do, its not even worth applying for. But, if you like the perks of getting to watch for free and bringing friends along then i guess it's worth it, alongside staff discount. also, the anticipation of not knowing when you are working and what times is not good at all, especially if you really like to schedule what you like to do.
the hardest part of the job would be the night shifts, finishing around 3 or 4 in the morning after having to clean the whole cinema. this is very stressful as a whole and there again if you don't like that then the job isn't for you.
the enjoyable bit would be watching movies for free and tagging friends along.
always put the business as your top priority when working there as if the manager can see that you are not positively not thinking about the growth of the business then they get upset.
Minimum wage, mind numbing, place at the start of your career
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – United Kingdom – 15 December 2018
Like with most minimum wage jobs this company has two kinds of staff, those that try and those that lie, you can put in as much effort as you like, but you can't garuntee the other staff will do the same, management work in a similar manner some are hands on, others you rarely see. In all this is an easy job so long as you put minimum effort in, or just show up, you get paid either way.
Customer Service Assistant (Current Employee) – Purley Way, Greater London – 14 October 2018
The hardest part of the job is when there is a new movie screening and you have to clean that screen and then balance the time between doing that and checking the toilets and cleaning other screens. The most enjoyable part is serving customers that have very friendly vibes.
I've learned how to manage my time better, how to serve on tills and how to juggle more than one task whilst completing them efficiently.
The management there is very helpful and friendly and they make things very clear and easy to understand. Nothing is over-complicated
Team Leader (Current Employee) – Fulham Broadway Station – 2 August 2018
The atmosphere is fun but the management can be poor. Difficult to balance social life because the hours are so flexible and you may have to help and take extra shifts. Management can either be far too strict, or far too lenient and this affects shifts which will backfire and the blame does end up on staff. Not the best job - but it is fun. Good temporary job.
I was at Vue for 5.5 years and loved every minute. Ok, the pay is MW and sometimes your rota is quite late but it’s a fun and easy job and I made friends for life. Management are nice, approachable and fair. Job is EXTREMELY flexible, easy to arrange holidays and days off etc. Great for a first job, weekend job etc
Free films, concessions discount, great atmosphere
Customer Assistant (Current Employee) – Doncaster, South Yorkshire – 20 June 2017
Vue is a really nice place to work, good, chatty co-workers. Hard work and not fantastic pay however employee benefits make up for it. If you're over the age of 18 you will be required to work closes which means working until 3am
Customer Assistant (Former Employee) – Harrow, Greater London – 1 May 2017
Good first job to have as it teaches time discipline, hard work, and teamwork. Management could improve as their guidance was substandard. It helped me keep organised as there was a strict time schedule for the 12 different screens, what time to clean each one after a movie, when to let people in, when to start the film from the projector and more. Also had to do stock control and deliveries for all the food and drinks sold at the cinema. Overall a good learning experience, but with bad management and poor pay for the amount of work that had to be done.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Oxfordshire – 13 January 2017
Worked with a wonderful team and got along with the majority, including management, however some members of the team and management can be calculated. If you don't do something that management like it could be unrelated to work or maybe not being able to cover a shift, they can get funny with you and only give you minimum hours a week (4 hours) - messing with peoples lives, as its only minimum wage. Saying that, I enjoyed my time there as it could be a lovely place to work. It can be a lot of work to do, and I don't think the wage covers it enough, very tiring and can work till very late, sometimes 3am.
free movies, lovely team downstairs.
late shifts, minimum wage for tiring work, some members of management.
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Inverness – 30 October 2016
No two days are the same. A fast paced environment with a fun and friendly work ethic. Everyone is welcoming and happy to help with anything you are struggling with. Management are always there to support you no matter what.
Customer Assistant (Current Employee) – Keynsham – 6 March 2016
I've really enjoyed working at Vue, having been there for a few months now. It's true the salary is a little meh, but it's varied work, the people I work with are great, the management are very friendly and fun people, and it's generally a very enjoyable place to work.
Customer Assistant (Former Employee) – London – 2 March 2016
The atmosphere was brilliant, very past paced but if you can keep up with the demands, you will do well.
You can either work on concessions or cleaning the screens in between viewings.
Working on Concessions, you had to serve the customers by booking their seating for their chosen movie and processing payment for the snacks. Some snacks you had to make yourself e.g/ Hot dogs and Nachos.
You had to ensure there was enough hot dogs on the hot dog stands, popcorn in the popcorn trays and Nachos made up in the trays along with the cheese sauce being hot enough to serve.
At the end of the night you would dispose of any hot dogs that had not been bought, clean concessions thoroughly and re-stock everything in preparation for the morning.
The Management were always on the other end of the radio if you needed to contact them during working hours.
The co-workers could sometimes be difficult to work with if they didn't really want to be their but everybody got on well.
The most enjoyable part of working for Vue was working for such a fast paced job role that always kept you busy. You were always up-to-date with new movies coming out each week.
I have learned from this role that you can do anything once you put your mind to it. Working for somewhere like Vue keeps you busy and teaches you new customer service skills to aid with dealing with difficult customers.
Customer assistant (Current Employee) – London, ENG – 8 December 2014
Working for VUE cinema is being a good experiences. The environment with my co-workers is so friendly even with the managers. They are always up to help you when you need it. One of the advantages is that you can watch films for free and get the 40% of the products that VUE cinema offer.
