I have recently been job shopping and I am hoping that some of you can share your experiences with different chains. What's the best one to work for? Why? What's the worst one to work for? Why? Thanks in advance!

Although the upper management of the chain is important for setting policies and how they use their resources to satisfy customers, it is usually the local management that is most closely associated with job satisfaction and career development.

Even the best chains have a few bad managers, and even the worst chains have a few great managers.

Yes, actually I did! I naively thought some current and former managers would have the cajones to state some facts for me. I was obviously wrong.

John said it best. It really depends on the local management and how they handle things. It could be the worst chain in the world(Carmike, from what I've heard elsewhere), and have a better management staff than any Regal or Cinemark, or any of the other major chains. I used to work for a Cinemark, and when I was there, they had a really bad GM, but some of the best managers that you can find. I prefer working for an independent chain anyway.
