Very Easy Interview
Cashier Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Blockbuster in March 2009.

IT Service Management Process Specialist - IT Operations Services Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Blockbuster in September 2011.
Interview Details – Phone interview with the IT Ops Mgr. He asked me to describe my ITSM and IT Operations experience and how I could apply my experience to the position. The phone interview ended with a confirmed face to face interview with him The one-on-one was more in-depth in terms of the position and provided the platform to sell your skillset and what sets you apart from your competition. From the time I phone interviewed to an offer was less than roughly 7 days total (phone interview on a Wednesday, face to face interview on a Friday and had an offer that next Monday).

Very Easy Interview
Shift Leader Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Blockbuster in June 2010.
Interview Details – Was called in for a SHIFT LEAD position because they had hired an assistant already. Easy interview, talked for a long time but was never called back. Store manager had said "Gee your qualified enough to take my job!" I guess I need to undersell myself. The position is designed for an entry-level person and my 15 years plus of retail sales and management closed the door on this one for me.
