    Former Employee - Assistant Store Manager

    I worked at Blockbuster full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Free rentals, potentially great staff (depending on who did the hiring). Had a lot of fun when the company was doing well.

    Cons

    Micromanaged, especially once the industry began to change. Wasn't able to adapt to new media landscape. Employees weren't valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to make sure employee satisfaction is being met. Happy employees=happy customers. Be open to new ideas and change. Don't force bad ideas.

    Former Employee - Store Manager in Auburn, AL

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

    Pros

    A chance to share my geek knowledge of all things cinema related to people who, for the most part, didn't care.

    Cons

    Long hours. No benefits because of the financial crisis within the company. My regional manager required all store managers work a minimum 45 hour week as well as Friday and Saturday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to care a bit more about your salaried employees.
