I'm getting there. I'm totally getting there.

I would love to get some unemployment though, I just wish I needed to know how much more shit I have to eat from this shitty company before I get there.

In my great state of Jersey (hold for the fistpumps), you need to maintain employment at a company for 6 weeks before you're eligable for Unemployment. If you are involuntary terminated for any disciplinary reasons, you could be disqualified from unemployment, as well as if you leave voluntarily without good cause.

I can tell you from experience, that I believe I had MORE than good cause (travel/distance issues combined with hours reduction & refusal to transfer me to a closer store or increase my pay/hours; long story). I was initially approved after a phone interview to explain my situation, but of course Blockbuster appealed the decision (millions of dollars in debt erased and they still come after me for a few hundred bucks). Still in the process of appealing their decision.

Blockbuster sucks as an employer right now, but anyone else who's reading this NEEDS to find another job before they just up and quit.

Anyway, getting back to the topic at hand....
CONGRATULATIONS on your imminent freedom!

Just accepted another job! Woo hoo! So long blockbuster! Giving notice when I get to work tonight.

Six years with a company that hasn't appreciated one thing I've done. Saved the company thousands of dollars, worked every holiday, helped other stores, etc... And never got an appreciation for any of it. Just more threats of termination, and punishments for not hitting idiotic sales goals.

Sorry to all of you still employed with bb. I hope you find another job soon too!

Doesn't it feel like a huge weight has been taken off your shoulders. I've had other SM's call me and wish me luck today! Its the first day in a long time I walked around blockbuster with my head held high!

Its amazing how after listening to my dm's 8th voicemail about sales results, that it really doesn't matter much more. Just do the best I can. If its not good enough for them, too bad! I'm not going to kill myself anymore.

Blockbuster sucked my life out of me for the last 6 years and its starting to come back in only 1 day.

Blockbuster leeches!

Even the Devil, which is the main share holder of blockbuster is saying you guys are making me look bad!
