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

Pros

easy work, laid back attitude, ability to rent five movies per week and one game per week completely for free, 20% off other merchandise

Cons

bad pay, no raises, little opportunity for advancement, no benefits for part time workers, sometimes boring, on your feet all day

Advice to Management

Allow raises! I worked there two years and never got a raise because the company was in financial straits.

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

    Pros

    You're supposed to be knowledgeable about movies, so Blockbuster gives you a bunch of free rentals per week. Depending on location/management, it is a relatively stress-free environment to work in

    Cons

    Upper management makes weird decisions that you have to deal with when the customers come in and complain. A lot of transient workers pass through who don't seem to care about anything.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to a tighter corporate strategy and stop faffing around on decisions.


  2. "Meh"

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours worked well as a part time job. Lots of hours available on nights and weekends.

    Cons

    Low pay, attempted to be offset by free rentals, but there are only so many hours a week to watch movies.

    Advice to Management

    Slow movement to match competitors was obvious from the start.
