    I have been working at Blockbuster full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    free rentals, great co workers at the store level

    Cons

    unrealistic sales goals, low pay, cold & uncaring Corporate managers, I was forced to return to work before my maternity leave had ended & before my child was even 2 months of age under threat of dismissal, when my doctors found tumors on my spinal chord & I needed surgery...they let me go rather than offer any type of help or support

    Advice to Management

    Grow a heart, my experience not withstanding I've seen so many others treated so poorly & unfairly, ultimately, this company is largely irrelevant now & had anyone on the Corporate level been an actual human being maybe employees & customers alike would've stuck with them more out of loyalty


  2. Helpful (1)

    "Fun at first, but eventually the lack of raises and room for advancement severed that relationship."

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

    Pros

    The free rentals were definitely a perk. Aside from that..

    Cons

    Constantly mistreated by upper management. Worked like dogs instead of human beings. Severe lack of advancement unless you knew somebody personally or kissed someone's ass.

    Advice to Management

    Take your employees' lives and work ethic into consideration. Employee #1 who works his ass off should be offered advancement or even praise before Employee #2 who slacks off, doesn't care, doesn't show up, yet kisses management's ass.
