Are you into movies? You should definitely consider working for the mother of all video stores- blockbuster. Blockbuster was opened in Dallas, Texas in October, 1985 and the founder of the company was David Cook, who grew the business and brought it public.
The company became a multi-billion dollar company and was sold to Viacom for a price of $8.4 billion
A good reason for working thereis that Blockbuster has over 5,000 U.S. stores. International stores (operating under Blockbuster and other brands) totaled 3,291, in 2004 including 426 in Canada, 897 in Britain, 70 in Denmark, and 408 in Australia. It has been claimed that there are more than 43 million U.S. households with Blockbuster memberships.
Blockbuster taps into the online video rental market. Blockbuster's U.S. online operation started with around 10 warehouses; further expansions every year have brought that number to 41, plus 1400+ stores in the Blockbuster Online network. Most Blockbuster independent franchises do not honor the Total Access program. The company had 1.5 million subscribers at the end of the third quarter of 2006.
Blockbuster is now part of the DISH network. You'll love working at Blockbuster. Their employees enjoy great benefits, opportunities for training and advancement, and a dynamic company culture. Not to mention FREE rentals!
