A multi faceted business with over 50 Cinemas across Victoria and a sprawling Entertainment district in Queensland include Wet and Wild, Outback Show, Hotel and Film studio's. Village Cinemas based in the fun part of Melbourne, close to rail and Tram links, Village Roadshow is at the heart of Australians film and leisure industry. Historically run by family members the business offers lots of scope to add value and drive efficiencies through SRM and CRM.
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.
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.
Not enough hours especially in the winter but great for summer! Had to move on, but I loved the people and the training have many friends I still love and adore from here.
Great people (usually) the base wage for a 16/17 year old was $18 an hour.
Could be stressful at times handling so many people
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.
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.
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.

Village Roadshow Limited is an Australian mass media and entertainment company active in a diversity of fields, including cinema, theme parks, film production and distribution. I began as an intern during my last semester of study, I was then selected for further employment after the semester finalised.
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.
Free movie tickets, in-house screenings, the people
Low pay, outdated systems, little room for career growth
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.
a lot of illegal hours
Movieworld is one of the funnest places I have worked at. The atmosphere is so friendly between customers and staff. I have gained an extensive skillset from such a short time of working there and still learn new things every single day. Management has been cooperative and provide support when needed.
Working at Movieworld was an amazing experience for me; I worked in more than just one type of store. I worked in a Department store, Gift shop, Ride centre and gaming centre, I worked with many different types of people and situations which gave me just a wide range of experience
Easy access lunches and free entry
Non secure employment
