2021 Re-Opening Job Opportunities *CLOSED*

UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who applied. Our application period is now closed and we are reviewing all your submissions!

GUEST SERVICES AND CLEANING & SANITATION CAST *NOW CLOSED*

Are you ready for your close-up?

With our reopening now moved up to July 16, 2021, we need some great people to help us serve our guests with second-to-none quality service.  We are not looking for people who just need a job; we are looking for those who want to work in a magical setting where your job is part of the show!

We are hiring guest service and cleaning/sanitation cast members to start immediately!

Yes, we said “cast” because we are in the movie business, and every aspect of the guest’s experience is part of the show, including our staff.  Their performance in serving the guest’s needs is every bit as important as the movie or the popcorn.  

The positions available are part-time and a few full-time.  We pay the prevailing minimum wage and provide uniforms without cost. All cast have free admission to movies with a guest when not on duty and a discount on snacks at the snack bar. 

Ideal candidates love movies,  can exude friendliness, be able to work in a fast pace environment and be ready to work as part of a team. To add to that, our company embraces the Disney Institute’s Approach to Quality Service and the Disney company’s Five Keys to a Great Guest Experience. We are recruiting stars that can live by these objectives and demonstrate them every day to our guests. Take a few minutes to use your Googler and research the keywords “Disney Approach to Quality Service” and “Disney’s Five Keys” (or Four Keys, as the fifth, inclusion, was only recently added).

If you feel you can take on the challenge, then we encourage you to send a resume and a cover letter to our CEO Jeff Knoll for consideration.  In your cover letter, discuss how you would demonstrate our Disney principles as one of our cast.  Better yet, record a video and talk about how you see yourself as part of our cast and how you understand the role. 

Resumes and cover letters can be mailed to jknoll@film.ca.   Use the subject line “I am ready for my close-up” in your email.  Videos should be uploaded to YouTube with a private link provided in your email or upload a video to https://filmca.filemail.com
