    I worked at Blockbuster part-time (Less 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.
