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

    Pros

    Able to be promoted quickly if you work hard. They always need hours covered. A lot of variety in your day.

    Cons

    A lot of pressure from corporate to reach unreachable goals. customers always asking about closing. Micromanagement

    Advice to Management

    All upper level management should know how to operate a register and work 1 shift per month in a store to stay in touch with what the job really entails.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Pretty good job for a student. 10 free movie rentals per week, 10% discount on most merchandise, flexible schedules, interesting motivational contests, customers were generally nice.

    Cons

    The pay was quite low, the evening shifts finished around midnight,many employees were dishonest, and shoplifting happened much too frequently.

    Advice to Management

    You should hire managers that are more disciplined and hire less teenagers. With a more controlled and structured work environment, my job would have easier.
