    Pros

    great health benefits and choice of a 4 day or 5 day work week

    Cons

    hours keep getting cut and you lose pto time because you don't accrue hours the same, more work being added, new cart system which is ineffective and more of a pain than worth using, they make a simple job more complicated than it should be

    Advice to Management

    listen more to employees in the field

    I have been working at Redbox (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay and raises are good for what we actually do. Flexible scheduling and GREAT paid time off and holidays. (Major reason i have not left). Great place if you do not plan to stay long and want a flexible daily schedule.

    Cons

    Do not expect to get a promotion. It does not happen. They often just do not replace people that leave. Management does not respect creativity and thinking outside the box. They just want u to drone on, follow their steps. Have a great idea? Don't bother to share it with management. Trust me they do not care. They wont even thank you for it or even consider it for one second even if you can show it works. I've had upwards of 5 ideas that could be implemented company wide from efficiency to time management... I had my job threatened basically if i did not immediately conform. So now i just sit quietly and do my thing until something better comes along.

    Advice to Management

    Well first hire some upper management that knows how to run this joint. Second make a major change to the way things are done. Then stop harassing your employees for every little thing. When we do something wrong sure, but every single week my manager has to point out something he wants me to do differently or something he thinks i need to improve on, its areal morale suck to hear all that negativity.
