Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Relaxed environment, lots of freedom to run the store as you choose. You got to watch movies all day, and rent new releases before they were released. Many loyal customers who became friends.

Cons

Relatively low pay. Lack of business towards the end, coupled with home office's unwillingness to change their business model. Franchise went under.

    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
