I worked at a Movie Gallery back in the mid 00s. It had the worst selection of any video store I'd ever been in, but it was the only one I applied to that offered me a job. It was a fun job, and I got rentals for a quarter (not FREE, mind you), but the management was extremely annoying - constantly coming up with useless up-sells nobody wanted and hovering over us as much as they could. One regional manager actually sat in her car in the parking lot some nights just to make sure that if there weren't any customers around, we got out from behind the counter and dusted the shelves. She would call our manager and have him call the store if we weren't performing up to her standards, which I thought was extra ridiculous. Also, they wouldn't let us read or switch out the tape of ads/trailers that played on the monitors, but we regularly did anyways. I watched Elf and the SpongeBob movie many many times since I wanted to keep it family friendly.

Anyways, I do miss Movie Gallery, and Hollywood Video, and Blockbuster, but I really miss the non-chain local video stores, because they had way better selections and cooler staff. If I ever get ahold of a time machine, I know several stores I'm visiting.
