I love that I can come to work, and even as a GM, still get to be the face of our company out the front interacting with our customers. On an average day, I am analysing financial data, ensuring that my business is heading in a profitable direction, working with staff to provide upskilling and coaching, taking with the management team about better practices we can adopt to get our jobs done more effectively, and making sure that the cinema complex is to the standard of an Event site. I take great pride in making sure that all our staff are creating EVENT experiences for our customers so that everyone leaves happy.

I was offered the AGM role at Hornsby and from there I have worked at Castle Hill and also George St. In 2010, I gained my first GM position at Parramatta where I am currently.

Rikki Goodwin – Coolangatta Cinemas

What is your current job?
I currently work as a Projectionist and Duty Manager at Coolangatta Cinemas.

Describe what you do in a regular day at work?
No two days in the projection room are ever the same. My duties on a regular day range from making up our new release prints, selecting what trailers should be run on what films, changing the ratings on trailers as they come through and simply threading the projectors each and every session to give our customers what the see on the screen. The trickier aspects of my job come on a Tuesday night when I will be found with my head stuck in a running film pulling out ads and replacing them with new ones. I love the diversity projection offers, and I love the interest our customers have in what I do up there. You can often find me striking up conversations with customers about the 'inner workings' of the projection room, more often than not explaining why I can't rewind certain parts of the film.

How long have you been working for us?
I've been with the company 4 years.

What words best describe our culture?
Challenging, Exciting, Diverse, Energetic, Evolving.

What has your career path been / what jobs have you had?
I started out as an usher with Birch four years ago as a part time job whilst studying a double degree in Journalism and Teaching. I have since completed my degrees but made the decision to continue my path with Birch. In that time I have progressed in my career with them going from night ushering to being trained up as a Duty Manager. From Managing, I moved into my training in projection and have fallen in love with my job up there.

Where do you plan to take your career path & why?
From working within the cinema industry, I discovered I have a true passion for everything film. Over the next year I plan to undertake some courses to make myself eligble to branch out into the marketing side of the company. You'll often find me up in the projection room nutting away at an idea as how to best create exposure for our small cinema. Our team is great like, always inventing some sort of public promotion, that and I'd really love to follow it into a career with the company.

Best 3 things about working for us?

  1. A workplace that constantly challenges me to be the best I can be.
  2. I've got to say the free movies and cheap hotels are pretty much unbeatable!
  3. Being swept away by the hype surrounding massive releases...aka Harry Potter 7, UNREAL FUN!

Worst 3 things?

  1. Making up the movies, I always see the last scene so know how everything ends!
  2. The odd person not quite making the bathroom after eating a little too much popcorn.
  3. Working night shifts can get a bit draining after a full week.

What advice would you give to someone considering employment with us?
Get into it! I can not express the opportunities you will be presented with within this company. I have not only had the chance to experience the true behind the scenes action of the cinema industry, but met many friends along the way.

No day at Event Cinemas is the same as the last. I love the fact that you can come into work, open your cinema complex, and there are always new faces in your foyer. Working for Event Cinemas is an exciting and dynamic job. You don’t just come to work from 9-5 and sit behind a desk and no one day is the same as the last.

I had always wanted to work at Event Cinemas and was jealous of one of my friends who had a job there!

Nicole

Nicole Sewell – Corporate Support

What is your current job?
Project Management & Design Coordinator.

Describe what you do in a regular day at work?
Raise Purchase Orders, process payments, manage project budgets using spreadsheets, track and manage furniture orders/deliveries. Office admin duties like dept expenses, travel bookings and filing.

How long have you been working for us?
4 years and 4 months.

What words best describe our culture?
Professional, relaxed, friendly, busy!

What has your career path been / what jobs have you had?
I started as an office manager straight from University. I worked for a small Public Relations company that specialised in business to business IT. I was responsible for all admin duties such as filing, travel bookings, office management etc. as well as accounts receivable/payable, media monitoring for clients, and some reporting. I completed a graduate certificate in Public Relations my second year with the company and then began writing press releases and supervising media interviews. After three years in PR I moved to a medical implant company to utilise my degree in Biotechnology. This was also a small company and I was responsible for the running of the office, assisting the national sales team, regulatory affairs, liaising with suppliers regarding product faults and recalls, and I was also the back up for the accounts and customer service staff – helping out during busy times. I received training in the medical device regulatory system, and also gained experience in sales and marketing. After a year and half I moved to Rydges Property Services Department, assisting the director of the dept. I was responsible for procurement, payments, tracking deliveries and general admin. After 1 year in Property Services there was a re-structure that saw my role become company-wide and over the next year or so the role developed into my current position. My team has grown to include 4 project managers and a design manager, and my dept works closing with Food & Beverage, Branding, hotel and cinema management and the top executive levels of AHL. Earlier this year I completed a Certificate IV in Project Management funded by AHL.

Where do you plan to take your career path & why?
In the immediate future I would like to work on small projects such as soft refurbishments (no construction) and develop my skills with the ultimate goal of becoming an project or event manager.

My path to my current role has been varied and indirect, but I enjoy planning and have the ability to organise and communicate effectively and I would like to use those skills in an industry that has lots of human interaction. I have always wanted to plan and manage events, but working with the team at AHL has shown me that the opportunities in this field are more varied than I first thought. My goals are now wider than I those I had two to three years ago, and I plan on keeping it flexible.

Best 3 things about working for us?

  1. Great people – my team are driven and social, and the other departments at AHL are hard working and fun.
  2. Opportunity to grow – AHL has supported my training
  3. Staff benefits – movies, hotel accommodation, theatre tickets, etc.

Worst 3 things?

  1. Working for a large company means effective communication can be difficult.
  2. The workload is significant and can require sacrifice of personal time.
  3. Implementation of lots of new systems at the moment are resulting in lots of issues, delays and difficulties

What advice would you give to someone considering employment with us?
It’s a great company that is diverse and has great people, but be prepared to work hard and to take responsibility for your work. There are opportunities but you will have to seek them out and work for them.

I totally love the people I work with, and also the relaxed but professional environment within the company. I do enjoy the perks, but I also like that we are offered opportunities such as workplace giving, the AHL employee share program and options for further education.

The crew at Rydges are the best bunch of people I have ever worked with. Great vibe, great opportunities, just great all around! Jacqui Couche – Rydges Melbourne     +++++     
I TOTALLY love the ‘Rydges Culture’, and the respect for staff whether you’re a GM or a casual. I TOTALLY love that hard work actually gets recognised. I TOTALLY love that the people in charge of the company take the time to talk and give advice to people who are lower in the company. I TOTALLY love the attitude that ‘my door is always open!’ I could go on and on but honestly, what’s not to love! Shelley Watson – Rydges Parramatta     +++++
