    I worked at Regal Entertainment part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good, clear procedures to follow for safety and cleanliness in the workplace. Pretty flexible when it came time to go back to school and work only on weekends. The employee gets a free movie pass for them and and one other person as well as discounted concessions items.

    Cons

    The management has problems, at least at my local theater. The turnover rate for the General Manager was too high. The turnover rate for the employees was too high as well. Not enough incentive, hours, or pay to stay. There was not enough supervision and cross-checking of the lower-level managers and their performance in the workplace. They had obvious favorites, like their friends and people they just liked better than others, which they're not supposed to have. Also, there was never enough hours, and the scheduling was inconsistent. They would very often send you home early without getting to complete all of your shift unless otherwise very busy, which was unfortunately infrequent.

    Advice to Management

    Work on getting better managers who know what they are doing (and care) and don't have favoritism. Managers are not supposed to play favorites. It was quite obvious who was one of their friends and who wasn't. Also, the annual employee review/performance appraisal was pathetic. Employees are supposed to have a meeting with a manager to talk about the good and bad of their performance that year, tell them what they wrote, and give constructive criticism to allow room to improve, but out of the 3+ years I worked there I never once had any semblance of this annual review or any constructive criticism. They merely asked me to sign it and then left with no further discussion. They don't even let you retain a copy of your own performance appraisal.

    I have been working at Regal Entertainment part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Regal is a fun, fast paced place to work. The managers and staff are generally friendly and the job responsibilities aren't too strenuous. Plus, working at Regal means unlimited free movies!

    Cons

    Not enough hours, and scheduling is never consistent. Too often I have been scheduled to work an eight hour shift, only to be cut by management as early as four hours in.
