I worked at Regency Theatres part-time (More than a year)
Amazing co-workers, lots of camaraderie and similar interests between co-workers. Almost everyone is easy to talk to and we had a lot of fun on the job.
Management at many times don't seem to care.
Made employees do some questionable tasks.
Some rewards, especially during busy movie releases.
It's a weekend job. Weekends are required.
Advice to Management
Listen to what your employees have to say. Many of them get their suggestions ignored and the company ends up changing for the worse.
The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Regency Theatres (Fontana, CA) in March 2016.
The interviewer posed typical run of the mill interview questions. Irate customers, tell me about yourself, pervious jobs, etc. A plus was that they were at least very applicable to the job. The interview began lackluster and you could tell he had done a dozen of them that day. But I managed at the end to turn "yeeahh, we'll call you if...(everyone else really sucks)" into a more promising "I'll call you tomorrow" by asking a few questions of my own and we were able to discuss the job more naturally since this wasn't scripted. Good news, someone called the next day as promised and I had my first day at work that same week. The hiring process was organized unlike other hiring processes Ive been through these passed weeks in my job hunt.
Note the company has a neutral (dull) dress policy. No unusual hair colors. Tats, facial piercings and heavy makeup are out obviously. Dress nice, but overdoing it isn't necessary.
