    Former Employee - Store Manager

    I worked at Blockbuster full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very easy job. If you love movies this is the place for you, if you can still find any. Customer service positions are great part time jobs for students.

    Cons

    Years of mismanagement have destroyed the company. Upper management drove the company into bankruptcy and Dish Network (the new owners of the company) are micro managing the stores to death.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not all the stores are the exact same, what works for one might not work for others, stop running the stores as if they all have the exact same customer base walking through the doors. Put more decisions/control back in the hands of the store employees, they are the ones that know what the customers want/like.

    Pros

    Store environment, Industry, People, Support staff.

    Cons

    Leadership that has been in poistion for too long. Too resistent to change. No Structured training for new field management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to support you team. If you say you're going to do something, do it. Treat people with respect. Belittling people truly get you know.
