  1. "The worst job"

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

    Pros

    The free movies are great. You can go any time. You get free popcorn every shift that you work. Your coworkers are pretty great. Flexible schedule, so good if you're in school.

    Cons

    Lack of hours Lack of growth opportunities No respect for staff Cleaning up human feces Overstaffing No time and a half on holidays Bare min pay for a thankless job

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees that you respect them. Pay them time and a half, they deserve holiday pay. Show that you care about your theaters and fix them up rather than letting them fall apart.

    Pros

    Good people. Easy job. Free movies. Free popcorn and small drink

    Cons

    Hours cut. Co workers immature. All young including the managers.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to schedule shifts. Manage time and size of people working correctly.

    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.

    I have been working at Regency Theatres part-time

    Pros

    There are really no pros to working for this company. Just half priced concessions and free movies. Sometimes.

    Cons

    Regency Theatres has an extreme hatred for its employees. They won't pay us any higher and make us sign our right to unionize or risk being fired. They want to make sure that they pay us the lowest amount of money possible.

    Advice to Management

    Get yourselves straight. You need to stop acting like we aren't people.

    I have been working at Regency Theatres part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You will learn how to interact with customers in a very professional manner and understand proper work flow (which is priceless in the service industry).

    Cons

    So concerned about spending and holding onto that extra dollar customers and employees become expendable. Sometimes it feels as if the company believes it's a privilege to work for them.

    Advice to Management

    Attempt to not be so reactionary to issues. HR is literally a nonexistent department. Waterhole talk almost entirely consists of how corporate doesn't care so long as the money keeps rolling in and "what they don't know wont hurt them". Disgruntled employees would be less prevalent if maybe it appeared like corporate cared about it's lower employees.
