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

Pros

Customers were great, good selection of movies and games. The benefits of working at Hollywood Video were you got 3 free rentals slots as well as discount on snacks and drinks. The layout was simple. Shifts were very flexible.

Cons

Management was inept, changed focus of business from rental stores to competing with Best Buy. The stores, in my area, were run with the idea of favoritism instead of rewarding hard work.

Advice to Management

Competing with Best Buy and other retail stores was too ambitious, should have re-focused their business model on the local communities instead.

    I worked at Hollywood Video (Less than a year)

    Pros

    watched movies while doing basic work, great customer base, free rentals.

    Cons

    the customers, having management coming in every other day, the fact that you have to sell magazine subscriptions to keep your job.

    Advice to Management

    dont treat your employees like magazine hocking monkeys, and you might just get more of a positive reaction out of who works for you.
