    I worked at Blockbuster full-time

    Pros

    It was like any other retail job. Sell, sell sell. Hours were convenient while I was finishing my degree. It was not a tough job. It didn't require much thinking.

    Cons

    The raises were a joke. I got a 5 cent raise one. Hardly any bonuses. I got a dvd as a Christmas bonus 3 years in a row.

    Advice to Management

    I guess it doesn't really matter what advice there is to give since Blockbuster no longer exists.
