    Hello! On Tuesday I have an interview for a part-time job at an Odeon cinema as a team member. I was just wondering what sort of interview questions I should expect and whether they usually do group or individual interviews?

    Also, does anyone know what the pay is like?

    Thank you in advance

    "What was the last film you watched?"

    "What did you like about it?"

    "What didn't you like XXX and XXX?" (Be wary that the interviewer has a high chance of knowing what film you are talking about, for obvious reasons)

    "What can you bring to our company?"

    "Do you have any cash handling/customer experience?" (Normally used to see what area you belong such as Box Office, Concessions or Floor Staff)

    The pay is probably minimum wage for a new person, with free popcorn and movies per week.

    Minimum wage.

    I've worked in 3 cinemas.

    I wouldn't expect free popcorn, you may get a discount on it though. And yes, free tickets.

    Oh, I didn't see you then The group interview was awful. You didn't miss much.

    Yeah, they looked really puzzled when I said I wouldn't be able to work until 3am because of sixth form! But I lied and said I'd do it so I could get to the interview, haha..

    If it was anything like other group interviews I've been to, it would have been both bewildering and degrading.
