Pros – Free rentals and availability before release dates. Flexible schedule. "Opportunities" for advancement supposedly. Nice customers. Some fellow hard workers were enjoyable to work with.
Cons – Overlooked for promotions despite being a hard worker. Poor company moral. Under paid wages. Lazy and incompetent management. Little appreciation for valuable employees.
Advice to Senior Management – Care more about your hard working employees and promote based on merit.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Cons – Poor employee treatment and low salary
Pros – awesome company loved this place
Cons – none, best place to work
Advice to Senior Management – stay in busines
Pros – cool co-workers, fun clientele, nice fringe benefits like free movies
Cons – No real benefits for people over 20, cruel and anal upper management, low LOW pay
Advice to Senior Management – Try not to go out of business next time? :P Or, I guess, don't treat loyal employees like thieves on the occasion they don't follow policy unless the actual INTENT was to steal? I have no idea why you were so awful to so MANY employees who did nothing wrong but to cross a seemingly senseless rule (e.g. firing a guy for buying soda on a single shift when said shift was 8 hours!), especially when said rule wasn't enforced at all locations.
My local store's manager Laura P. actually got it and was awesome. A way cool lady I learned a lot from. I wish they'd listened to folk like her more -- maybe then they'd still be around.
Pros – Customer interaction and free movies!
Cons – Bad district managed coupled with bad decisions led to the downfall of the entire company.
Pros – I got out of there. On a serious note I got to work with some amazing people. There were (at the time) a lot of stores so when I moved to Boston, I could find a store.
Cons – They closed, so I helped with the fire sale to get rid of everything, then the next store I was in closed. Each time another store closed I got a lateral promotion (promotion because I would get more hours, lateral because my pay and responsibilities would stay the same).
Advice to Senior Management – Trust that your employees want to make the store a better place. Treat employees well and give them the room to make the store better. and good job on getting rid of the purple shirts.
Pros – get to work in movies
Cons – "no cats!" policy, pants required
Advice to Senior Management – more hugs please!
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Worked with Videos on a daily basis.
Cons – Company closed due to rising costs
Pros – movies, food, hours, music, games
Cons – dying breed, hours, pay, inventory, games
Advice to Senior Management – pay more
Pros – Free movie rentals, talking about movies you love to customers. Working with fun people that had the same interests with you was great.
Cons – I didn't like that I had no room for growth in pay rate and that of course it closed down only after a year of working there. Did not like the push for selling rental programs either.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
