    I worked at Blockbuster


    It was an amazing challenge early on as we had so many customers and we were always busy. As time went on there grew to be many competitors with Hollywood Video, Netflix, Redbox and streaming. Hollywood Video was more of an annoyance. Netlix was new with its mailing concept and Blockbuster eventually capitulated to create a similar method. Redbox had such a small PP that our selection, shopping experience of not impersonating a homeless person while shopping and confection and pure habit brought people in. Blockbuster didn't have the leadership that was visionary to get out in front of these ideas. Loved competing with these companies and meeting customers and providing them exceptional service was rewarding. (not to mention watching free movies)


    The inability of Blockbuster to be visionary in its concepts led to its downfall. The planograms made sense to make sure all stores were similar but the rigid stance to stick to these ideas was frustrating. If my store was exceeding expectations because we were not using company guidelines we were not praised but frowned upon.
