    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont act like you're a higher class of person than the rest of us. It just makes you look snobby.

    I worked at Blockbuster part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free movies to watch. Fun people to work with. Decent hours

    Cons

    Working at Blockbuster when I was hired at first was fun. But as the company itself was going through bankruptcy, demand for sales was unrealistic. Our store was in debt and eventually closed because of it. We were told we would get fired if we didn't sell enough passes or candy/popcorn. Going to work having to fight for your job is very stressful. Sometimes you feel like you have to beg customers to buy anything just to keep your job.

    Also. I was doing all of the managers duties and not getting paid extra for it.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
