really didn't enjoy this job
Customer Service (Former Employee), Bowie, MDMarch 2, 2015
Pros: 5 free movies/game rentals a week
Cons: main manager belittled everything i did
unlike the esprit job i got to work with people and suggest old movies as well as new that were good for me which everyone seemed to agree with my taste a typical day at work was to check in movies that were returned and stock the shelves again but even though i went above and beyond I got no recognition for it

Entry level job
Cashier (Former Employee), Bronx, NYFebruary 23, 2015
Pros: discount on movies
Cons: long hours
scanning inventory for customers, making sure the store is display correctly and giving customers great customer service. i learned how to use a data base for movie inventor. hardest part of the job would be making sure i clear long lines when it's busy.
best part of my job would have to be the free movies i could rent a week.

Fun place to work
Customer Service Representative/Shift Lead (Former Employee), Hudsonville, MIFebruary 22, 2015
Pros: free rentals and work parties
Cons: a lot of extremely heavy lifting
Blockbuster was a very laid back place to work. I learned how to use the software and I improved my customer working skills by working there. A typical day entailed cleaning and organizing the store, as well as communicating with guests and upselling Blockbuster products. My co-workers were fantastic. They were all so nice and welcoming, which made my move to Grand Rapids a breeze. I would have to say that the most challenging part of working at Blockbuster was trying to understand what a person was looking for in a movie so I could recommend the perfect one. The whole experience working with the Blockbuster company was very pleasant and very fun, my co-workers were amazing and the managers genuinely cared about us. They also offered great benefits and extras for their employees.

Productive Learning Experience
Associate/Sales of Supplies (Former Employee), New York, NYFebruary 21, 2015
At work, it would be pretty quiet. Co-workers doing what they are told. My co-workers were friendly as they were assisting each other when needed and myself when needed. I've learned how to sort, pack,price and stock inventory as well as working with the register.The hardest part of the job would have to be pricing the inventory correctly. The most enjoyable part of the job was sorting and packing the inventory in its proper places.
