I worked at Blockbuster full-time (More than a year)

Pros

this is a very laid back company that is an amazing first job as you get ten free rentals a week including games. plus you get the movies almost a whole week prior to the titles actual release.

Cons

alot of times you have to deal with some customers that are less then pleasant and some are down right nasty. one time i got a movie back that had at least 20 roaches in it. but honestly in all retail locations you have those nasty kind of people so for its only con it is not a deal breaker

Advice to Management

do background/drug checks and check the discs your employees bring back i have heard of many employees burning copies destroying the disc and returning it and blaming it on a customer

    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
