    I have been working at VPD full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    VPD is a successful company that bleeds success from the top down. A leading company in the industry who has been able to withstand many market trends downs. Culture is one that very rarely do you see and employees come to work happy and ready to work. VPD is family, that is not something you can say in most organizations.

    Cons

    This company has sold and will be closing in Oct.

    Advice to Management

    Culture is one that can not be mirrored. VPD has always been the best kept secret in the industry. I have learned so much, skills that I have implemented in my life and they will last a lifetime.

    I have been working at VPD full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Had good things for people bonuses,trips a lot of good people work there.ceo cares about people.I enjoyed working there.

    Cons

    the industy is not doing well.dvd's and games are a dying breed.Movies are going more to a streaming format.Look at the Blockbuster chain...gone....Hollywood video gone.....Why pay five dollars for a dvd rental when a membership to Netflix is 8 dollars a month.....true they don't have new releases....but what a choice you have...Redbox is a dollar a movie to rent....there is no way rental outfits to compete with that.........VPD will have to retool to survive... I worked there a long time raises were far and few between......I felt I was underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    listen to your staff more the people on the floor doing the work such as warehouse..I thank and think the best of Tim the CEO really looked out for people gave bonuses and gifts to us...Thank you! I miss working there and wish the best for all of VPD!! I hope things turn around and becomes the success that is known for!!
