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.

    Negative Outlook

    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.
