    Pros

    Flexible. Free movies. Great supervisor who serves as a mentor. Great co-workers and great employees. Constant changes keeps things fresh and different. This particular theatre is beautiful, current and well kept.

    Cons

    Working holidays can be tough.

    Although the constant changes keep things fresh it can also be difficult to keep up with all of them as well.

    Advice to Management

    Having worked at multiple theatres for a variety of supervisors, I wish there was more constancy among them all.

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

    Pros

    Regal promotes from within, and the benefits you receive, even as floor staff, are great. It's such a friendly environment.

    Cons

    You really have to be on your toes. It's not a job for people who can't handle the pace of thousands of patrons a day.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes the script that employees have to speak from gets a little ridiculous

    Pros

    Wonderful workforce members; very pleasant working atmosphere

    Cons

    truly, none to ,mention, with the exception of my advice to management

    Advice to Management

    Working for REG has been an enlightening and wonderful experience. But- a serious flaw that I have noticed is that upper management is more concerned with aesthetics, with little to no promoting of movies, or special events. I was very happy back in December, when I noticed that It's A Wonderful Life would be on the big screen for only $5! Yet, only 11 people attended. The same can be said for the upcoming double feature of Deadpool. A bit more than 55 percent sold less than 24 hours before the event. Something simple as banners hanging from the marquis would easily double the attendees. Aesthetics may be pleasing, but I do not believe that they add to attracting viewers to the theatre experience. The front of the concession counter is painted with the colors of Dunkin Donuts. Is this supposed to be subliminal? If so, then maybe McDonald's, Pizza Hut, etc., colors should be used, since food is more expensive than the beverages. But, hey- this is just my humble opinion.

  8. "Regal Cinemas"

    I have been working at Regal part-time

    Pros

    The people who work there are really cool and I've established some strong connections working there so long. The scheduling is also fairly flexible which is good for students or people with second jobs. Employees get 2 free movie passes a day and half off concessions.

    Cons

    The compensation is a little low. I started at 7.25 and currently make $8 after being there for 4 years. This location also has an alcohol license but you can't accept tips.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management and those above them is that it would be beneficial for them to increase the pay rate, even slightly. Our location in particular sells alcohol so they would prefer hiring 18+/21+ people to serve but people in that age demographic, especially 21+ year olds aren't looking for minimum wage jobs because they have more financial responsibilities than someone who is a minor.
