Poor Budget Planning

Store Manager (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsFun environment, creativity a plus, high paying at management level, paid lunches and breaks if skipped due to heavy customer volume.

ConsPoor upper management, terrible district human resource practices, waste budget money on high paying leads in store but have no reserve hours to have more than 2 employees in store at a given time.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's too bad that they went out of business but Blockbuster was not quick enough to evolve and create a product the customer wanted. I am sad to see the stores go and I hope in the future there will still be stores available with rental movies available at a dollar or two dollars a day with a staff full of employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
