    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Blockbuster (McKinney, TX) in September 2011.

    Interview

    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).

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Blockbuster (Flower Mound, TX) in March 2011.

    Interview

    It was really easy, because I built a relationship as a frequent customer with the staff. The original Store Manager was cool, but she got promoted to an Exec level position due to her prior experience as an auditor for the IRS.

    Shift Leader Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Blockbuster (Fort Worth, TX) in June 2010.

    Interview

    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.

HR called back and asked for references. They called all the references. One day later I got an offer.
