I worked at Blockbuster

Pros

Internal development is a priority, training programs were fantastic. Excelent compensation for job expectations. A graet team to work with who repersents company values.

Cons

Lots of nights and weekends for store staff. Cost control can be challenging with reduced hours. It can be tough to work in a business where the market is down trending.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ensure to invest in future growth of the company. Focus on new streams of revenue, this will be a must for the future.

    Great place to work but your work does not get recognized unless you are friends with higher management.

    None of the other employees will work anyone hours so you get stuck with everything.

    Pros

    Free movies, easy job, but only easy if the store manager is laid back. Also you get free games and don't have late fees.

    Cons

    Hearing Netflix would have this, are all the stores shutting down, horrible management, someone always calling in, people getting promoted who aren't properly trained.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chill out, make sure everyone is working even hours, do not promote someone until they are trained enough for the job.
