    I worked at Blockbuster full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This job is structured responsibilities; you need to be organized and timely in accomplishing tasks.
    There is always something to do if you are doing your job. It can be a fun place to work with good team members.
    Free rentals for employees.

    Cons

    Stores were cutting back on hours that the store was open; which was not a good change for customers, Flipped store 3 times in less than a year -- this confuses and upsets customers. Employees that were already at this location had poor work ethic and attitudes. A lot of stores closed including this one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps a survey of customers would help with setting programs, better customer service and greater customer loyalty to the brand.
