    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tracy, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Blockbuster (Tracy, CA) in December 2010.

    Interview

    I was called my a recruiter, which happen to be an assistant manager of one of the DM stores. Later, we became and still are good friends. then I went in for an interview at the local store..I waited for an hour at least but then the interview went well. I still am friends with the dm, AND then I had to wait to get an interview with the regional manager, turns out he was on vacation, so they went ahead and offered me the position. I was in a training store for several months, it was okay, I was able to to work and train without the pressure of having a store to pass or fail..this was nice because when I went to my own store I was confident. The only issue was when I was offered my store they made me interview with the regional manager...which was silly because I already was hired..were they going to fire me??? I did get the position but it was short lived..they ended up closing my store due to financial hardships. I decided to just finish and get my degree.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you had to deal with a difficult customer?   1 Answer
    • most questions were open based questions   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    It was actually very easy. I told her what I wanted, and she wanted me so much she went in at a higher rate..plus when I went from training manager to store manager I was given another raise! It was nice especially since I the company was going through financial issues and cutting back on a lot of things. It was nice because I knew the DM valued me and knew I was worth it.

    Interview

    I rented movies regularly and was asked to apply. I was a college student and the good thing is they work well with your schedule. unfortunately they do not pay well finding someone to cover your shift is hard. you will only get about 20 hours a week at minimum wage. so my advice is do not apply

    Shift Leader Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Blockbuster (Thorndale, PA) in July 2009.

    Interview

    It took about a month to get an interview. When I got to the interview, the panel was more interested in my movie selections than in my experience. When I answered questions, the DM didn't understand some of my responses because she was only half listening. Got the job anyway because the Store Manager felt bad for me waiting so long for an interview. Now, I'm his best sales person.
