They are out of business
Was this review helpful? Yes No fun environment with a great staff. Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – December 9, 2015 I worked here for a year and it was fun. The best part is the co-workers and being able to check out movies before they came out on the shelves, plus having benefits to check out movies and catch all the latest movies. The hours were great and management was awesome and friendly as well. Was this review helpful? Yes No Not a great place and it shows Customer Service Clerk and Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Winston-Salem, NC – November 24, 2015 As of this writing (2015), Blockbuster is out of business. Management was clueless when it came to a changing marketplace and customer demands. Unfortunately, my location closed by 2006 so we were ahead of the curve. The customers and our movies could be interesting, but otherwise it was worth avoiding.
free rentals, customers

Yes No Love Movies Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Charlotte, MI – January 6, 2016 I would run a cash drawer all day.

Lots of free Movie Rentals
No breaks, bad benefits

I have nothing but good things to say about working there. Was this review helpful? Yes No The online business was making money but not the stores. Distribution Clerk (Former Employee) – Lansing, MI – November 2, 2015 I enjoyed my time at Blockbusters. The pay was not so great, but the people with whom I worked everyday with, was great. I stay in touch still with a couple of them today. The online part was making money but it needed the stores to stay in business to continue that. The stores were not making money. Streaming and Redbox, Netflix ran them out of business.
Selection of movies to rent and most of the time, I got to take one home overnight only.
Pay was not great and starting time was way too early when you needed to check quality of products.
