Decent perks and minimum wage

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
Oceanside, CA

ProsGenerally had more free rentals than I knew what to do with, and I got to talk about games and movies for works.

ConsNever went above minimum wage, and your experience is really going to be determined more on whether you get a good manager(s) more than anything else. Also, got terminated pretty suddenly when the store I worked at closed, with pretty much no explanation as to why I wasn't able to be transferred to another location.

Advice to Senior ManagementSales goals seemed way too driven towards snack foods with movies. I'd rather the bigger focus been finding movies for people that they're going to enjoy, and based on what they've enjoyed in the past, giving them good suggestions for the next movies they watch.

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