Store Manager Interview

Store Manager
Oklahoma City, OK

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Blockbuster in December 2011.

Interview Details – The hiring process when I signed up was ancient. They had people interviewing for Store manager as well as people in jeans and t-shirts that hadn't been washed in a week in the same circle. It was easy to stand out in that crowd if you had researched the company at all and had any smart sounding challenging questions.

Interview Question – Being asked to sell was a new one for me. Also the movie knowledge questions were weird. Luckily everyone was awful so I looked better than I was.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There really wasn't one. They asked me what I wanted. I quoted a high number and she said ok. Come to find out later I was one of the higher paid store managers in the state and I had the least experience. Really I was hired as a spite move to the company I believe from a District manager on the way out.

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
New York, NY

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Blockbuster in June 2008.

Interview Details – I came into the store and applied through a computer. less than a week later I was called to come in, I didn't even get an interview. After waiting for the store manager to come to the front of the store, he asked me for my shirt size and my availability to start. After answering a few simple questions (have I ever worked in a retail store before, # of hours I could work, etc) I was given a small tour of the store then I was hired.

Interview Question – how much do you expect to make?   Answer Question

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Braintree, MA

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Blockbuster in July 2008.

Interview Details – Applied online, then spoke to the store manager. Had to go all the way to headquarters for an interview with a panel of managers. Seemed a bit unnecessary for a clerk job. They asked various questions about customer service, movies, games, etc. A lot of work for such a low paying job.

Interview Question – They asked a lot of questions about different situations and what movies you would recommend.   Answer Question

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
New Orleans, LA

I applied in-person and interviewed at Blockbuster.

Interview Details – Very simple interview. Mostly wanted to know if your schedule was flexible/you could work any hours. Also seemed to be really insistent that they would do a background check before hiring. Hiring process was delayed because it occurred through the New Year. No drug screening.

Interview Question – Nothing, really. They focused on soft skills - responsibility, punctuality, good customer service, etc.   Answer Question
