Dish Sales Specialist & Cashier (Former Employee), Greenfield, WIOctober 18, 2014
Pros: early dvd releases for employees (watch them before anyone else).

Easy and fun to work for. All you do is talk to people about shows and movies and get paid for it.

District Manager (Former Employee), atlanta, gaOctober 13, 2014
Great place to work during my time with the company. I had many professional growth opportunities and worked with a lot of great people. Blockbuster is now out of business due the changing retail environment that they struggled to stay competitive in.

Okay job to learn customer service skills at
Customer service representative (Former Employee), north ogden, utahOctober 11, 2014
When I worked at Blockbuster it was right after the company had been bought by Dish so there was a lot of inconsistency and confusion going on at the customer service level. We were also required to sell Dish subscriptions to customers wanting to just rent a movie which in retrospect seems just laughable. I believe the whole store only sold one subscription – more... the entire time I worked there. – less

Short hours
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Elkton, MDOctober 10, 2014
Cons: no hours.
This job was not very challenging which I prefer to be challenged. The hours were also few, all the hours were given to the supervisors and the regular employees were kept usually around 20 hours or less. Many times we had weeks where we only worked 5 hours a week. As Blockbuster locations closed we had to work at other locations to help sell merchandise – more... and then shortly after doing so Blockbuster went bankrupt and all locations closed and employees were let go. – less

Blockbuster Video a great place to work.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Prunedale (store manager) Salinas (asst. manager)October 9, 2014
Pros: good and positive environment. chance of advancement.
Cons: they closed. lost all my retirement and pension.
My daily routine was to go to work, clock in, turn on lights, set the safe. Read emails, count registers, daily paperwork, boot up all registers, do transfers, get printouts of daily things that needed to be done. Go over printouts with other employees in our huddles. I had daily meetings with employees before each shift to make sure everyone is on – more... the same page. Would discuss changes, goals, any concerns they might have. Kinda like a quick training before they started their shifts. I feel that doing this keeps everyone in the loop. Makes meeting goals and completing tasks better. I would give incentives as well. Would always give positive reinforcement as well. I feel that noticing their qualities in performance and with customers makes the teamwork more positive. A better environment for all. People want to come to work and do a good job when they are happy. So why not make them happy? The hardest part of my day was closing shifts. The closing shift had a lot of work. A lot of cleaning, organizing. Over all, I enjoyed my job. – less

Fun and friendly environment
Supervisor (Former Employee), Chatsworth, CAOctober 8, 2014
Pros: free movie and game rentals
Cons: conflicted with school
I was promoted two months after being there to shift supervisor. It was a tough job but I learned quickly. Every shift that I came in I counted drawers met with my team and discussed our focus for the day. I would deal with customer issues on a daily basis. most were easy to fix others would take a little more time and patience. My managers were easy – more... to work with and helped me every step of the way. Learning how to manage others was something that was new but came rather easy. My coworkers were good employees so I never really had to reprimand anyone. I got free movie and game rentals as one of the perks of the job. The only downside was that it was not a very flexible job while I was going to school. – less

Not a desireable place to work, poor management and bad incentives for employees
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Naples, FlOctober 8, 2014
Pros: get to rent mulitples movies a week for free
Cons: poor management, bad incentives, hard to provide quality customer service
I would not suggest working for Blockbuster. They pressure you to push sales of special bundles and "deals" that aren't even deals, just combinations of normally priced items. The computer system and company policies make it difficult to provide quality customer service.
