    I worked at Blockbuster full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Free rentals. Flexible schedule. Generally customers are very friendly and a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Company is closing down. Stores are being closed as their leases come up for renewal and they're laying off almost the entire staff. Expected to achieve unrealistic sales goals. Very low pay with no pay increases.

    Advice to Management

    Become relavent again or close the stores.
