    I worked at Regency Theatres part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You were allowed popcorn on your breaks as well as watching the movies playing, although it was pointless since your lunch break was only about half an hour.

    Cons

    Immature staff, age group ranged between 16-24 years old. Definitely not recommended for anybody older than that. Awful pay and very short hours.

    Advice to Management

    Manging a movie theater is no great feat, please get off your high horse and stop acting like it.

    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 Management

    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 have been working at Regency Theatres part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great sense of teamwork. Especially if your theatre location is a small one.
    Good place to pick up basic job skills in customer service.
    Free popcorn and soda.
    Flexible schedule.
    Lots of downtime to bond with coworkers.

    Being able to see movies for free is a perk, but the policy on it is somewhat dumb (cannot be on a weekend, movie must be out of the first week of showing, can only bring one person with you, must have a manager notify theatre of your arrival, you have to sign something when you arrive)

    Cons

    Corporate is full of cheap, greedy business mongols. They will make sure you get paid as minimum as possible.
    No benefits. At all. In fact, your hours are capped at 28.5/week (even managers) because to go over 30 would force them to pay your insurance.
    If your GM doesn't favor you, prepare to get virtually no hours at all.
    No raises, even for those working for over 2 years.
    Corporate is way too cheap to update their equipment, hence the reputation of Regency as being a rundown theatre.
    Employee discounts are a joke. $1 off concessions.

    Advice to Management

    Try actually caring about your employees and treat them like people rather than expendable drones.
