    Advice to Management

    Department is top heavy with Supervisors who are "people managers", yet they do not contribute anything to the work that has to be completed. Supervisor's should lead by example.

    I have been working at Redbox full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Redbox really cares about the individual and their customers. They have a complete benefits package that rivals just about any company.

    Cons

    Redbox is in an industry that is declining. Their business model is built on the physical dvd and game. Redbox will no longer be viable when the pricing, quality, and selection of new release movies and games are equal to redbox and readily available for online streaming. Although some speculate that this will be soon, I still believe Redbox has many years left of good, strong business before streaming completely takes over.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just look for ways to cut costs, although this is vitally important. Looks for new ways to innovate, expand, and increase business.

    Pros

    Freedom- work alone, most days are spent 1/3 working and 2/3 driving. Decent benefits. Manage (ROS) is the best.

    Cons

    Have to cover for Merchandisers (FSR1), new ticketing system takes away freedom of which kiosk to service first. Pay is kinda low for a Field Service Tech.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your field employees, don't just set a directive from corporate and say "comply" without first setting a test trial and getting feedback from field employees. Raise wages for field employees.
