I worked at Blockbuster full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

All Blockbusters are (were) the same, easy to transfer from store to store; employee discount on merchandise.

Cons

Souless corporate environment, not inherently Blockbuster's fault they're just all like that; forced to destroy excess product rather than sell it

Advice to Management

None really, except maybe quit with the destroying stuff if you still do that.

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

    Pros

    Wide variety of customers, free rentals and fun co-workers.

    Cons

    Not allowed to use hard earned PTO, no breaks for managers, working alone for whole shifts, constantly being reminded by your district manager that you're replaceable, and high pressure sales.

    Advice to Management

    This advice is for the people at the top who make the rules, not the store managers. This company is no longer about customer service. The reason people choose to come to BBV instead of a box or the internet is for human interaction. Give more hours to the stores so they can better serve what precious few customers are left. Treat your employees with respect. Happy employees = Happy customers.

    I have been working at Blockbuster part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    10 free rentals a week, with a 10 day grace period.
    relaxed environment with coworkers,

    Cons

    customers always get irate when movies were checked out. sorry the movies not here but the worlds not ending. hard to move up not enough employees. could never call in sick cause there was never enough employees. trying to push dish to every customer.. its blockbuster not dish network.

    Advice to Management

    good luck staying open, selling dish is stupid, you should change the name of blockbuster to dish if dish is the main priority there.
