SCREW YOU Blockbuster!


The couple months or so since I've been gone have been great!

It does feel good to be gone from a company that treats its employees like absolute shit. Looking back, the methods at trying to control the minds of their employees were absolutely pathetic. The stress placed on employees for not meeting ridiculous quotas for Reward sales or Movie Passes ... or even such things as not making candy bundle quotes for high markup confection items which everyone can get far less expensive at a grocery store ... and making them think that these items, along with putting a sell-through item on row 2 as opposed to row 1 of a certain endcap would make all the difference in the world to the company.

This company preached accountability across the board and I held my managers and other employees accountable for things in their control. It's just a shame that corporate could hold everyone accountable but itself in the company's demise. It was everyone else's fault for the position the company was in except for corporate.

What a disgusting company. I enjoyed 2-3 years of it, but afterwards I suffered for another 2 1/2 years when things began to take a turn for the worst with the company before I finally accepted the writing on the wall and took off. I am ashamed to admit I wasted that much of my life there.

BBVTyrant: That's one if the most concise, well worded testaments to one's experience I've ever read on this board. Nice work!
