    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Blockbuster full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good forward looking identification of market conditions
    At one time, great brand recognition, still salvageable

    Cons

    (previously) Poor choices in meeting market conditions (strategy identification & execution)
    - Held on to the belief they know movies best (making internal solutions more complex than necessary).... long after innovation in movie delivery proved more valuable (redbox, netflix)
    -(previously) management decisions not sufficiently strategic, spreading focus and resources too thin to achieve necessary survival
    -Resource management by layoff. Instead of managing new hires, BB allowed to hire too many people this year, layoffs every spring (illustrates a disregard for people/employees)

    Advice to Management

    Management has already made many necessary changes

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Blockbuster part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you are looking for any minimum wage job, Blockbuster is the place to be. Being a CSR there is fun, easy, and you get 5 free rentals per week. Perfect summer job for teenagers.

    Cons

    Unfortunately since Blockbuster isn't doing so well financially, don't expect a lot of growth opportunities, or job stability for that matter.
