No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Free movie rentals, fun environment, good corporate structure. Overall, it's a relatively stress-free environment to work in. I recommend it if you like movies a lot.

Cons

Outdated computer system. Also, being pushed to sell lame marketing deals gets kind of annoying, but you'll likely encounter that at almost any retail environment.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Was a fun place to work in mid-'90s

    Cons

    Policy changes decreased quality of customer service and caused numerous customer complaints

    Advice to Management

    The company is almost gone now. My advice would have been, Think of the customers first rather than the bottom line.
