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

    Pros

    I worked at movie gallery while I was in college. It was great for a college student. Ieft when I graduated from college. Our store had free perks like whomever sold the most protection plans, or cards got gift cards. The free rentals were awesome! Everybody on campuses applied for opened positions just for free movies and game rentals. The woman found me walking around the store one day with a friend. She came over and smiled, and asked me what I do in school. I told her my minor was in film studies and English. She interviewed and offered me the job on the spot.

    Cons

    There were some creepy customers. We had an adult section. Some of the people who went into that room were just bizarre.
    Also, during the week you had to work by yourself. You could sit down in the back chair until a customer would come in and ask for help. The only time two would work were the weekends. It was boring during the week. We would close at 9, and out of the store by 9.05

    Advice to Management

    I hated you close.

    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.

    Manager was a liar who stole from my register and used the money to gamble at a local casino.

    Check on your managers because some of them are horrible crazy people. Overall it was a few months of my life I'll get back.
