Pros

Small stores mean less square footage to worry about during shift. Flexible schedules, great people, easy inventory and stock management.

Cons

Low pay, short on benefits. Because stores are smaller in size, fewer positions available, meaning less opportunity to move up.

Advice to Management

Listen more to the people who actually work in and run stores as opposed to upper management who has little to no retail experience and thus no working knowledge of how the stores actually operate.

    Pros

    Loved working there because of unlimited free rentals and access to new releases before street date. The hours weren't bad either.

    Cons

    The store was open 365 days a year, it was hard to find someone who wanted to work on major holidays like Christmas. The Store Director job was high stress and upper management asked a lot without being appreciative of the time and effort required to maintain a profitable, well-merchandised store.

    Advice to Management

    Work on less micromanaging.
