Pros

Get to meet lots of neighborhood people, always busy so the days go fast

if you are highly organized and motivated to get the work done yourself go for it

    I worked at Blockbuster full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Free rentals. Flexible schedule. Generally customers are very friendly and a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Company is closing down. Stores are being closed as their leases come up for renewal and they're laying off almost the entire staff. Expected to achieve unrealistic sales goals. Very low pay with no pay increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become relavent again or close the stores.

    Pros

    Free movies/games...that's about it. the culture would have been cool had it not been minimum wage and full of bitter, overworked employees.

    Cons

    unpleasant deadlines, gross mismanagement of resources, and a dying business.
