I worked at Blockbuster part-time for more than a year

Pros

easy work, laid back attitude, ability to rent five movies per week and one game per week completely for free, 20% off other merchandise

Cons

bad pay, no raises, little opportunity for advancement, no benefits for part time workers, sometimes boring, on your feet all day

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow raises! I worked there two years and never got a raise because the company was in financial straits.

    I worked at Blockbuster part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You're supposed to be knowledgeable about movies, so Blockbuster gives you a bunch of free rentals per week. Depending on location/management, it is a relatively stress-free environment to work in

    Cons

    Upper management makes weird decisions that you have to deal with when the customers come in and complain. A lot of transient workers pass through who don't seem to care about anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to a tighter corporate strategy and stop faffing around on decisions.

    I worked at Blockbuster full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great rental benefits, great customers and employees.

    Cons

    After bought out by Dish it got very corporate. They definitely did not have the employees best interest at heart.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think Dish has made a very big mistake by closing so many stores. Obviously this was the plan all along. They just never told us Store Managers the news.
