Fun Job With Many Loyal Customers and Lots of Perks.

Store Manager (Former Employee)
Memphis, TN

ProsRelaxed environment, lots of freedom to run the store as you choose. You got to watch movies all day, and rent new releases before they were released. Many loyal customers who became friends.

ConsRelatively low pay. Lack of business towards the end, coupled with home office's unwillingness to change their business model. Franchise went under.

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