I worked at Blockbuster part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Free movie rentals, fun environment, good corporate structure. Overall, it's a relatively stress-free environment to work in. I recommend it if you like movies a lot.

Cons

Outdated computer system. Also, being pushed to sell lame marketing deals gets kind of annoying, but you'll likely encounter that at almost any retail environment.

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

    I worked at Blockbuster full-time (less than a year)

    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.
