    I worked at Blockbuster part-time

    Pros

    You get to see returning customers and rent dvd's and games to them, you get promotional movies and games free to try out to help serve the customers better, and the district and regional managers were great to work with

    Cons

    The chain closed down nationwide. We miss them dearly.

    Customers were sometimes hard to deal with. Having to make sales goals.
    Dealing with some managers that brought drama to worm.

    Leave drama at home

    It's a bummer upper management ruined the company, by the time a new CEO got there it was already to late. I had a chance to meet mr Keyes, he seemed like he genuinely wanted to turn things around, but the ship was already sinkonf
