Not too bad of a company

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)
Folsom, PA

ProsBlockbuster 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.

ConsWorking 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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

    Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)
    Buffalo, NY

    I have been working at Blockbuster full-time for more than a 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… Advice to Senior Management: Grow a heart, my experience not withstanding I've seen so many others treated so poorly & unfairly, ultimately, this company is largely irrelevant now… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

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

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
    Spartanburg, SC

    I worked at Blockbuster part-time for 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.… Advice to Senior Management: Take your employees' lives and work ethic into consideration. Employee #1 who works his ass off should be offered… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
