Pros

Free movies, it's a family store so you don't have to touch porn. Management is wonderful and friendly. Flexible hours. You do earn paid time off even if you are just an associate.

Cons

No raise in 3 years with the company, the stores in my area closed in quick succession. They are open 365 days a year so no mandatory vacation, and some stores are open until midnight.

Advice to Management

Give more notice of changes in the stores.
