Don't expect professionalism, or any sort of respect

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Family Video part-time for less than a year

ProsCheap/ Free rentals
Friendly customers
Good for part time/ busy people looking for just a few hours a week.
They say that you can advance quickly up the chain, wasn't there long enough to experience this.

ConsTraining consists of 30 days of management breathing down your neck trying to point out all the areas you are screwing up on. Sales are expected to be up since day one when you have no clue what the specials are. They say they're looking for personality, however all they seem to want in cheerleaders, I wasn't perky enough for them. Expected to work when off the clock too.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
