Exciting place to work with a professional but fun dynamic.
I worked at Movie World for their Fright Nights one year and found it the be a new an exciting experience in which I thoroughly enjoyed myself. They seem to have a great balance between professionalism and fun and did a great job at making you feel like an important part of the team. The management team really seemed to have a big care factor for the staff as well as guests.

Great company
very Slow over winter. Great place to work. Management deal with concerns and complaints quickly and efficiently. Pay is okay but for the stress could be better. always pay enough tax so you get a return. Some staff are given priority over shifts because of popularity.

Could be stressful at times handling so many people

Positive and constructive work environment
While busy most of the day the levels of stress of the workers are monitored by the supervisors to make sure noone crumbles. Supportive and understanding the company ensures you also have a range of work in the different parks which you can simply be called up and be assigned to for that day

A typical day at work involved seeing guests and staff who came in with various injuries or on occasions going out to see them in the grounds.
I only worked there for a few months as a casual but I learnt heaps and I loved working for Village Roadshow, particularly at Outback Spectacular; being around the Horses, Animals, Cowboys and Cowgirls.
There was always a sense of excitement at all the parks where I worked.

The other staff members were usually friendly, helpful and easy to get along with.
Pros
Free entry to other events that occured at Movieworld, being able to see the Outback Spectacular show whenever not busy, meeting lots of new and interesting people.
Cons
It was hard working alone especially when having to make decisions regarding treatment, Could usually speak to someone by phone but not the same as having another person present.

Good benefits, stressful work
Hours are right in the middle of the day, can be inconvenient to some, not good work/social life. Very stressful work, pushy staff and customers. However there is good pay and benefits.

Great company but going through big change
Great company but going through big challenges, both in industry and management. Difficult to progress, even more so when company is undergoing transformation.

Village Roadshow
Like so many jobs I've had most of the joy from this company comes from the people, not the work (and certainly not the pay). It was fun at first but tension is constantly high due to the state of home entertainment.
Pros
Free movie tickets, in-house screenings, the people
Cons
Low pay, outdated systems, little room for career growth

Unhygienic, Unhealthy workplace
Village roadshow theme parks was the worst job I have been apart of. On a handful of occasions I was not paid properly and was mistreated. I did enjoy bar-tending at the corporate events, the experience I gained from that was excellent.
Pros
Experience
Cons
a lot of illegal hours

Great Perks, Young Community
A typical day of work consists of signing in back of house and taking a 7 minute walk to the Admissions and Guest Services Department, sign in at your department and grab cash, fill tills and head off into the working day with a positive attitude! Working at Wet n Wild was an absolute youthful working experience.

I learnt plenty of customer service skills and how to ensure the guests always felt tended to and valued!
Pros
Free entry/rides
Cons
Low Wages
