Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Oceanside, CA

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

Pros

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

Cons

Never 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 ManagementAdvice

Sales 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.

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

    Pros

    Relaxed 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.

    Cons

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