    Pros

    - Not a take home job.
    - More free movie rentals than I could use
    - Worked with some great people.

    Cons

    - Dead end job, not a lot of opportunities for advancement past shift-lead position
    - Unless you are management, there is no option for full time work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing the policies every few months, the customers don't like it.

    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.
