I worked at Blockbuster full-time (more than an year)

Pros

this is a very laid back company that is an amazing first job as you get ten free rentals a week including games. plus you get the movies almost a whole week prior to the titles actual release.

Cons

alot of times you have to deal with some customers that are less then pleasant and some are down right nasty. one time i got a movie back that had at least 20 roaches in it. but honestly in all retail locations you have those nasty kind of people so for its only con it is not a deal breaker

Advice to ManagementAdvice

do background/drug checks and check the discs your employees bring back i have heard of many employees burning copies destroying the disc and returning it and blaming it on a customer

    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
