I worked at Blockbuster part-time for more than 8 years

Pros

The job was incredibly easy. Check in movies, check out movies, watch movies, give reviews to the customers, stock shelves, clean up the store, occasionally do an inventory scan; a pretty typical retail job. Also, health and dental benefits are available to part-time employees.

Cons

Customers will try to argue over late fees, regardless if they are justified or not (usually not). The pay is minimum wage at best if you are just a customer service representative and you will only get a raise as minimum wage increases from year to year. You also can be fired at any time for just about any reason.
