    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Blockbuster in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I asked if there were any openings at my blockbuster store and I was referred to the online application. It included a one hour test, primarily a business ethics and media knowlege test. Brush up on games and game systems if you can. Then I was invited on short notice (the same day) for a group interview. It was actually enjoyable and upbeat. It took place in a Blockbuster store and I was told to grab a movie off the shelf that was "me" and tell everyone why it was "me". I was the oldest person there. The hiring person was very respectful in general and seemed very excited to have someone of my experience. I have been told right off that I am being considered for management after the holidays. The training program is fantastic, I am very happr with it and while I have to work hard and push sales, my Manager works just as hard. I have been offered two other jobs since, but am thinking of staying at Blockbuster because I like the way it is currently run.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Blockbuster in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    I walked in with a smile around noon on a weekday and asked if they were hiring, the store manager asked if I could go for an interview the very next day (no they were not desperate for help). I dressed casual for the interview (pants and a polo shirt) I went in 5 minutes prior to the interview, the assistant manager was also working, he was very happy and greeted me with a smile. I was walked over to the office for a sit down 1:1 with the store manager. I immediately thank the store manager for solely giving me an opportunity for an interview. She asked me about my knowledge on movies and games- such as what's your favorite movie/genre And so on, along with some personal questions such as, what do you do in your spare time? Where do you see yourself in 5 years (classic)? The Interview lasted 30-45 min
