    I worked at Regal Entertainment part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working with people with a sense of humor so you can have fun doing stuff you might otherwise find boring. It becomes real easy in retail jobs like these to form bonds and friendships with the people you work with, and if you can find people with similar interests to you you will have a great time doing work.

    Cons

    Working for people without a sense of humor is the worst part, sometimes managers are patronizing or full of themselves. Scheduling was never consistent and you would get random times and hours sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so uptight, offer more opportunities for promotions.

    Good first job experience

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Regal Entertainment

    Pros

    It's a nice job to have when you are in school. They have very flexible schedule since the busy times are based on when kids are out of school. Have gained a lot of great experience that will come in handy in future jobs. Great people to work with and of course free movies are nice.

    Cons

    It's open every day of the year, so it makes it challenging to spend time with family during the holidays. With all the focus on cutting payroll it is hard to make sure everything that needs to get done does.

    Pros

    very easy, flexible hours, good experience, free movies

    Cons

    pay is horrible, always understaffed, management is not reliable, people who are hired either take job too seriously nor not seriously at all, too much responsibility put on senior employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start paying your employees a little bit more and the turn over rate may not be so high
