I have been working at Blockbuster part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Blockbuster is very good to their employees from what I have seen so far. It's also cool that they let their employees receive 10 free movie rentals a week and you can see movies before they're released on dvd to the public.

Cons

Working at blockbuster there is a lot of down time, Not many hours unless you are management, and you can not rent new releases under the free rentals unless it has been out for 3 weeks

    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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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.
