I worked at GameFly

Pros

- Free GameFly rental account

Cons

- Pay was average for the job type, which means it sucked in general
- No room for advancement past a few $0.50/hr raises
- Work on Saturdays
- Extremely boring manual work (filling envelopes, printing shipping labels)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to make the work environment more tolerable for such a boring, repetitive job. Have more company events and parties.
