    I have been working at Blockbuster full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Learn how to run a business , learn to provide excellent customer service , learn to upsell, learn inventory management skills, learn how to handle cash.

    Cons

    Very very low pay. That's why it's good for part time college students that need a little cash and life experiences in the workforce.

        Former Employee - Associate 

        I worked at Blockbuster part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        This was a high-school, summer job. It was simple, though their user interface for transactions and customer assistance was primitive and hard to work with.

        Cons

        It was too long ago for me to really recall any specifics. 2015 is just the farthest back I am able to select for year.

        Advice to Management

        None. I'm supplying this review to meet glassdoor requirements.
