    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.

    Pros

    free movie rentals, flexible hours, getting to meet lots of new people, regular customers, renting movies the night before they are released,

    Cons

    immature co-workers, hourly, no benefits, little room for growth, rude bosses, having to "babysit" your co-workers, general dislike of the job

    Advice to Management

    find a way to track when the employees are giving movies away. I witnessed it and had to write people up often.
