    It was a very stressful experience, with unfriendly customers and solo shifts.

    Pros

    Free movie rentals per week

    Cons

    solo shifts, unfriendly customers, standing while pregnant for long hours, having to climb in the drop off box while pregnant, working on every holiday...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your loyal employs or they won't want to come back. I never called in even though there were days my pregnancy caused me to want to. I still wasn't allowed simple courtesy of sitting when tired or a sufficient break to eat.

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, most customers and employees are friendly, free rentals.

    Cons

    No raises over last 4-5 years and don't see that changing anytime soon. No full time positions, except for store managers. Health benefits are terrible, not worth the premiums.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show you care about your employees by raises and/or sales bonuses. I understand Blockbuster is a struggling company but, if there's more incentives to do our jobs, I believe that can elevate the company.
