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

Pros

Generally had more free rentals than I knew what to do with, and I got to talk about games and movies for works.

Cons

Never went above minimum wage, and your experience is really going to be determined more on whether you get a good manager(s) more than anything else. Also, got terminated pretty suddenly when the store I worked at closed, with pretty much no explanation as to why I wasn't able to be transferred to another location.

Advice to Management

Sales goals seemed way too driven towards snack foods with movies. I'd rather the bigger focus been finding movies for people that they're going to enjoy, and based on what they've enjoyed in the past, giving them good suggestions for the next movies they watch.

    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.


  2. "very laid back sociable environment"

    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
