    Movies, movies, movies. If you love movies this is the best place to work at except maybe working on a movie.

    Cons

    The logistics of balancing day to day activities with projects can be a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the POS and website.

    I have been working at MovieStop LLC part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great customers. Kind of relaxed environment. Get to watch all of the movies in the store for free. Having difficulty finding enough good.

    Cons

    Low pay, especially for the work. Have to work for years to get advanced. Taking gift card trades makes job more difficult. Uniform too formal. Horrible hours. The upper management doesn't care about your happiness just as long as they're making money. Coming in at 5p on Thanksgiving Day. 10% discount. Must pay yearly for extra 15%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop scheduling work on holidays especially since we know you're just sitting at home.

    I have been working at MovieStop LLC part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    fun environment, easy, and works around personnel schedules

    Cons

    horrible pay, bad hours, and the uniforms are way to formal for a movie store

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give more hours to help us keep up with the constant flow of movies so that we aren't always behind, raise pay at least 50 cents, and please get rid of the horrible movie stop polo's, they are hot, uncomfortable and hard to work in. Don't get me wrong I enjoy my job to an extent and im thankful but every place has there cons.

    Pros

    Great employee discount program, great environment to work in. Good camaraderie between co-workers.

    Cons

    Poor pay. Poor chances of advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have an employee who has consistently higher sales numbers than most managers in the entire company, then make sure that the employee is recognized for their achievements and don't leave them wanting to find better paying jobs.

    I worked at MovieStop LLC

    Pros

    Checking out movies, usually lots of hours available, employee discount, generally laid back atmosphere, being paid to talk about movies.

    Cons

    Pay is not the greatest. Sometimes store is overloaded with trades that we are expected to process in the normal amount of time, even though there aren't enough people and/or hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more lenient when it comes to processing trades during high-volume times. Also discourage nepotism in the workplace wherever it is observed.
