    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Blockbuster.

    Interview Details

    Very basic interview. Nothing challenging. Only one interviewer in the room and they didn't seem experienced. Interview was held in a tiny back office and often times store associates would come in to have their break. It was a bit disruptive.
