    Nice place to work.

    Senior Sales Associate (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat team, had a blast with everyone I worked with. Could be a location thing but my team was great. Higher management came to the store and talked to you like you mattered. Good discounts and nice clean well run stores.

    ConsNot a lot of communication between stores, my store had another store maybe 6 minutes away, and the communication was nonexistent.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good Interim Job

    Senior Customer Service Associate (Former Employee)
    Milford, DE

    ProsThe management was responsive. There was frequent recognition of meeting or beating sales and productivity goals. Customer oriented position that really rewarded knowing the product.

    ConsThe pay was weak, and conflict between non-management employees was stressful. Additional stress added when company declared bankruptcy.

    The Thrill of Movies! The Fun of customers and laughter of staff! Soaring to new Heights!

    Store Manager (Former Employee)
    Gardiner, ME

    ProsOne time I wrote a letter to the Disney Co. telling them that my staff had pre-booked a huge amount of pre-sales of Sleeping Beauty-which they had and more coming in through their hard work. Disney surprised us all by sending a box of Sleeping Beauty blanket throws in a rich tapestry design for every employee. This was such a WOW which we will never forget.

    ConsI cannot think of anything negative . Good staff -we could be creative in merchandising contests.
    Lots of good customers. Fun projects to do together. And looking forward to all the new and exciting movies to come.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf your employees are doing a good job then praise them. If they can work independently then let them. Listen to them. Happy employees give better results. Say Thank you -no matter how small the job.

    Worthwhile experience but not a career company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFriendly team (rank & file).
    Not too many layers of mgmt so easier access to upper levels of mgmt
    Technology oriented

    ConsTerritorial. Upper Mgmt a very close team and set in their ways.
    Used to the smaller markets, so not comfortable with salaries for larger city markets.
    HQ in a small town with no easy access

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay closer attention to input and advice from employees and mid level managers

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Poor communications with management

    Shift Leader (Former Employee)
    Hopkinsville, KY

    ProsGreat customers and computer systems, enjoyed the time i spent there. Customers made the job great. Computer systems easy to learn

    ConsPoor Management, no communication with management. When management did listen. They really didnt hear your voice. Your opinion did not matter.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire people with actual credentials

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Mostly great experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsA sales focused position with regular customers that you could build professional relationships with. Very strong relationships with supervisors and recognition for solid sales.

    ConsThe worst part of movie gallery was when store politics got involved. If someone was determined not to like you, they could make the entire experience negative.
