    I worked at Blockbuster

    Pros

    Flexible hours, dynamic environment, free rentals, chance to talk with folks about movies all day and get paid for it.

    Cons

    No chance of moving up unless you kissed some district manager bottom. Companywide decisions were handed down and implemented with little (if any) warning. Some of their sales requirements seemed over-ambitious and overly rigid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Little people do matter. That being said, take this as warning: it's a retail job with corporate America, executives don't care about you. Just look for a store that doesn't hire sociopath for its managers and assistant managers.

    I worked at Blockbuster

    Pros

    good to work there as a student and it was good to watch free movies. the customers were pretty low maintenance and laid back.

    Cons

    i don't think i really would have stayed if I wasn't in school. Little to no communication with corporate, which is annoying, but its part of the game. not a fan of the uniforms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need more information about what's going on in the company, relax your rules a little bit, and better wages.
