when you go to your outlet the atmosphere is amazing people are joking around and making everyone laugh they also know how to run the team and their sections. they let you make mistakes and they ask questions "How do you think it could have been avoided", "what did you do wrong" etc. the hardest part of the job was trying to do the job but under staff.

Retail (Former Employee) – Gold coast – 8 March 2017
Yeah the benefits are great and you meet a lot of amazing people but the amount of Chinese whispers that goes on at this place is disgusting. Managment don't care if you have to. Work in 40• heat. As long as you're making money that's all they care about
Free tickets (when you've worked enough hours)
Awful supervisors, untrustworthy business, they don't back pay you if your pay is wrong.
Lifeguard (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 30 November 2016
worked for village road show in sydney and then at the gold coast. loved it both times, its a great job for a backpacker or someone looking for casual work but dont often get enough hours for it to be a job in the long term.
great work environment, working with great people
unsocialable hours, shifts often got cancelled when you were casual staff
This was my first job, so it was a great place to kick start my experience and move onto other things. Face-paced and enjoyable environment, very hands-on, build lots of different and transferable skills, and opportunities for advancement
A varied and fun place to work with opportunity to be creative
Senior Art Director (Former Employee) – Melbourne, VIC – 27 October 2014
Responsibility for the creative output of an in-house design team for various departments of Village Roadshow Limited. Over the years I have witnessed the change from print based advertising to digital and experienced the learning curve that came with it. The successes we have achieved go hand-in-hand with the relationships built over the 15 years I have spent with the company.

Customer Contact rep (Former Employee) – Sydney, Australia – 4 August 2012
I started at Roadshow on a Q4 contract. Q4 is the period in the year which is the busiest time - September - January. After the contract was finished they asked me to stay on as a casual, which I gladly accepted. My daily tasks are talking with customers who call in. Our four distributors are Village Roadshow, Warner Bros, Paramount and Reel. The most enjoyable part of this job is getting to be in the Entertainment industry. We get all the information first hand of the new releases and releases to come out in advance. Management here are friendly and are flexible and understanding to peoples needs. We recently had a staff meeting and the leaders asked us how we think we would like to see improvements in the company so that we can enjoy working there. Our biggest release is next week and they have offered to give us a huge lunch during this time. They dont want us over stressed as they understand that being stressed doesnt encourage us to work better. They have also asked us where we would like an all expenses paid outting for our department. I love that they respect us and are concerned for our well being. The hardest part of the job is at times the phones are extremely busy. Our tasks require us to be focused and concentrate. This can be difficult when the phones are ringing constantly. Every phone call is important and requires our full attention. I have been very grateful to have full training with the SAP system. I didnt know how to use this system until I worked at Roadshow. I have also been trained in using the Warner Vanguard system.
free dvds, free movie tickets, human rights respected, lunchs paid for, and frequently appeciated, clean working environment, good pay, flexibility
phones can be too busy, no break during 5 hour shift
the team was great and very supportive, managment always looked out for their employees, the experince i gained from village cinemas was amazing, however the field i belong to is more along the lines of retail instead of hospitality.
