Ok....The rules have changed which I don't like at all.

All regular full-time employees are eligible to enroll in a course on or after the first day of the month following 90 days of employment.

----Employees will be reimbursed for 75% of the cost of books and tuition to a maximum of $2,000 per year. The employee must receive a minimum grade of “B” to be eligible for reimbursement.“B-“ is not reimbursable under the program.

---Tuition reimbursement is provided for courses offered by approved accredited institutions of learning such as colleges,
universities or trade schools. Courses must be, in the Company’s opinion, directly or reasonably related to an
employee’s present job, part of a degree program which relates to employment and in line with a position that the
Company believes can reasonably be achieved. Courses must not interfere with job responsibilities and must be
taken on the employee’s own time.

Funny thing is that full time employees must have open availability. So taking any classes will make you ineligible for the full time role you currently have. So you will be demoted or let go. Therefore no tuition reimbursements will actually be paid out.

Damn like Blockbuster or not, but when they had the money to do their own tuition reimbursement it was pretty sweet. I would get money back for getting C's, and I didn't even have a major, just took liberal art classes.

Well, that sucks, since most stores around here no longer have full time help. They have been told to hire only part timers.
It's been a Fun Ride,
THANKS!! Old Friends!!
