      Pros

      Regal was a great place to learn customer service skills, basic maintenance, food service work, and was a fun environment to work in with consistent movies premiering through the Summer and Christmas seasons.

      Cons

      Cineworld company buy out transition was horrid for company policy changes. Watching out for simple and small mistakes during work was nerve wracking because company policies made it super easy to get written up. Ultimately felt that my best work was not being seen by the company and felt too pressured being in a minimum wage job. Movie benefits became limited and I eventually put my 2 weeks in after a year of working there.

      Don't stick around for too long.

      Pros

      Pays you, gives you experience for another position. Health Insurance.

      Cons

      After the Cineworld buyout, we were quickly shown that we were numbers and not valued employees. Annual raises, merit raises, and the Employee of the Month program were discontinued. Free movie passes used to be 2/day and were reduced to 2/week with no warning after a particularly busy holiday season. Team Leads originally were not allowed to have safe or building access. Later on changed their mind about giving us building access. Eventually decided we would learn how to perform opening and closing duties like senior management, which means learning how to do everything that they do. So we are expected to take on more responsibility with no change in pay. If higher ups visit your location, I hope that they don't find dusty hinges or a speck of dust. Every spare moment is spent dusting equipment, cleaning glass, or tackling arbitrary cleaning tasks, and it is never, ever enough. Constant criticism and if you DO manage to have a good visit, you're just rewarded with more work. Let's not forget the ungrateful, rude customers who don't know how to pay attention to the information in ads, or the company advertising coupons or specials and not always giving staff clear instructions on how to ring them up.

      Regal is a great company to work for

      Pros

      The company has a leadership team that has been working for theatres for 3 generations. They care about movies, and they care about the theatres being the best place to watch a movie. They have many employee friendly things in place to provide opportunities including opportunity to grow in the company. Working for a theatre gives you the chance to meet new people each week as the movies change and bring in a different clientele. It keeps things fresh each week. And since Regal's mission is to be the best place to watch a movie they have really high expectations which means you get to make a difference with each guest so they have that magical experience.

      Cons

      Working in a theatre environment requires being available when it's busy so it's hard to get a "set schedule". It all depends on the movies coming out. The company itself has really solid practices in place that is excellent, but like most businesses, liking your job can depend on the local management of the theatre. As a whole though the company itself is really good. If you don't like a fast pace and need to adapt to the business at hand, this isn't the job for you.

      Fun, Easy, but Underappreciated

      Pros

      Fun and relatively easy work to do. Interesting to see a different side of the movie industry. We get free movie tickets. Nice job for entry-level workers or lovers of movies. Make decent friends with fellow employees.

      Cons

      Understaffed. The current staff gets overloaded with work with no extra or too little pay. Staff is underappreciated for more often than not working harder or doing the responsibilities that could be dispersed among more staff. Employees are taken advantage of if they do good work and are timely and available. Management sometimes also has no regard for scheduling preferences. Door shift people have to stand for several hours with no chair or at least a podium to lean on.
