´╗┐Blockbuster an American-based chain of DVD, blue-ray and video game rental store. Blockbuster is a very popular which has spread over the countries of America and the globe rapidly. The best rental providers and etc?. . In the following parts I will be talking to you about the roles and responsibilities about the manager, employees and other staff. Roles and responsibilities are hard tasks but it has to be followed right to get customers in and buy more and more of their products. The following shows how the store manager, the assistant manager and the customer sales representative, have showed their roles and responsibilities.

That employee will not be guaranteed to the best after starting after the following day. That employee will be providing lack of judgements of tasks, not fulfilling them; he/she will be destroying the lack of quality of staff and the store itself. So, on the other hand blockbuster has switched this around. They are giving great salary; they staff are surrounded by the stuff they mostly love.
