    Current Employee - Store Manager in Glendale, CA

    I have been working at Blockbuster full-time

    Pros

    Gave me the opportunity to teach myself strong leadership skills. Was only a great company to work for when Viacom was around.

    Cons

    Computers from when the dinosaurs roamed the earth. Poor upper management, too much pressure to upsell. When the company started slipping, we were forced to hand out flyers door to door. Pathetic company with no vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why was the CFO from the bankrupted Hollywood Video hired? Dumb much? RDOs should have led by example and knocked on peoples' doors promoting instead of sitting behind a desk making six figures.

    Pros

    Easy job if you have no real goals of working your way up or making any money. Free movies

    Cons

    Mainly paid in free rentals, but that doesn't buy food.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close all stores and only do blockbuster box
