    I worked at Blockbuster part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    5 free rentals per week, including new releases before street date

    Cons

    Franchises can be very different, so it's hard to know what you're getting into; job security is probably very poor at this point

    Advice to Management

    Good luck to those last few struggling to stay open.

    Pros

    Co workers and customers were amazing. Free movies and games. Took out if state trips for corporate events.

    Nowhere to go up. Worked all holidays. No raise but hours required to work as a salaried employee went up and up. No clear direction from upper management, other thanight "do better than what you are doing now"

    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

    The chain closed down nationwide. We miss them dearly.
