    I have been working at Regency Theatres as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I learned how to plan events and market films to a niche audience effectively. I meet a lot of great people and made good contacts with the local community that can possibly help me land a job after college graduation.

    Cons

    the drive to work is terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    compensate interns with a stipend or gas money.

    Pros

    Free movies and discount on concessions stand

    Cons

    A LOT of responsibilities and staff the bare minimum

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more leeway on payroll in order to allow management to oversee staff instead of cleaning theatres and bathrooms

    I worked at Regency Theatres part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a very self explanatory job. It's a great introduction to working. It's a fun environment and the free movies are a plus. You'll get to know/interact with some really cool customers. Hard work is really appreciated.

    Cons

    Very often under staffed and half the employees working won't do thier jobs anyways. Poor management. Be prepared to lose faith in humanity. Though hard work is appreciated, it's hardly rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address the way Andrew treats employees. Actually use six month reviews and work with employees who cannot or will not do thier respective jobs.

    I worked at Regency Theatres full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great people on the floor level. Co-workers are all in the suffering together. Respect from managers except for the few with a napoleon complex.

    Cons

    Broken, mismanaged and micromanaged, severely underpaid. The GM has no power, all orders come from the Golins (owners) who know nothing about running a theater. They care nothing about presentation quality, all their equipment is ancient. Their procedures are horrible, we'd be closing up at 3am even if the last show was at 11pm. Would force us to clock out and continue to work to avoid overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your GM's run the individual theaters. Don't assume you know how to fix things if you're never there. You are clueless when it comes to theater operations and all your pointless rules make working there a pain. The infrastructure of your nightly procedures are redundant and outdated making your employees do way more work than needed and staying overtime because of the broken system. You care nothing about your projection equipment and spend no effort in improving your theaters.
