I have been working at Blockbuster part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Blockbuster is very good to their employees from what I have seen so far. It's also cool that they let their employees receive 10 free movie rentals a week and you can see movies before they're released on dvd to the public.

Cons

Working at blockbuster there is a lot of down time, Not many hours unless you are management, and you can not rent new releases under the free rentals unless it has been out for 3 weeks

    Fun at first, but eventually the lack of raises and room for advancement severed that relationship.

    I worked at Blockbuster part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The free rentals were definitely a perk. Aside from that..

    Cons

    Constantly mistreated by upper management. Worked like dogs instead of human beings. Severe lack of advancement unless you knew somebody personally or kissed someone's ass.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take your employees' lives and work ethic into consideration. Employee #1 who works his ass off should be offered advancement or even praise before Employee #2 who slacks off, doesn't care, doesn't show up, yet kisses management's ass.

    Corporate does not care about their employees at all & they are treated badly

    I have been working at Blockbuster full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    free rentals, great co workers at the store level

    Cons

    unrealistic sales goals, low pay, cold & uncaring Corporate managers, I was forced to return to work before my maternity leave had ended & before my child was even 2 months of age under threat of dismissal, when my doctors found tumors on my spinal chord & I needed surgery...they let me go rather than offer any type of help or support

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow a heart, my experience not withstanding I've seen so many others treated so poorly & unfairly, ultimately, this company is largely irrelevant now & had anyone on the Corporate level been an actual human being maybe employees & customers alike would've stuck with them more out of loyalty
