Was once a great company, but is now a place of stress and misery.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
Portland, OR

ProsWide variety of customers, free rentals and fun co-workers.

ConsNot allowed to use hard earned PTO, no breaks for managers, working alone for whole shifts, constantly being reminded by your district manager that you're replaceable, and high pressure sales.

Advice to Senior ManagementThis advice is for the people at the top who make the rules, not the store managers. This company is no longer about customer service. The reason people choose to come to BBV instead of a box or the internet is for human interaction. Give more hours to the stores so they can better serve what precious few customers are left. Treat your employees with respect. Happy employees = Happy customers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
