    Pros

    Coworkers, Friendly Customers, Not a Stressful Job

    Cons

    The pay was the worst. They always make you work overtime and deny time off.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees instead of threatening our jobs because we have to make a certain percentage on pre-sale movies.

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

    Pros

    Some Co-workers were nice to work with. Flexible hours. Free movie rentals.

    Cons

    Some co-workers were a pain to work with. For meal breaks you were supposed to clock out and leave the store. However, if you were the only one operating the store, then you were not allowed to take breaks to do so. Thus, sometimes I worked 9-13 hours without a break of any kind.

    Advice to Management

    You have no idea of how to run a company.
