Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Blockbuster part-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

The job was incredibly easy. Check in movies, check out movies, watch movies, give reviews to the customers, stock shelves, clean up the store, occasionally do an inventory scan; a pretty typical retail job. Also, health and dental benefits are available to part-time employees.

Cons

Customers will try to argue over late fees, regardless if they are justified or not (usually not). The pay is minimum wage at best if you are just a customer service representative and you will only get a raise as minimum wage increases from year to year. You also can be fired at any time for just about any reason.

    I worked at Blockbuster part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Love the people I worked with

    Cons

    Never get movies in on time.
    Employees can't review movies to let customers know if they are good or bad because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Should have left the rentals at 1 week with the $1.52 restocking fee. Forcing Dish sales on employees made them hate their jobs. Quit worrying so much about advertisement in the stores, and focus more on what the customers want.
    Not that this helps, all of the stores are closing. This is so sad.
