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

    Pros

    A chance to share my geek knowledge of all things cinema related to people who, for the most part, didn't care.

    Cons

    Long hours. No benefits because of the financial crisis within the company. My regional manager required all store managers work a minimum 45 hour week as well as Friday and Saturday.

    Advice to Management

    Try to care a bit more about your salaried employees.


  2. "Great for a fun work experience, not for stable employment"
