    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 days - interviewed at Blockbuster in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    Very straightforward and friendly interview. They asked me questions regarding my favorite movies, whether i liked working with people, and to talk about different situations in previous jobs that I held in the past. It was very low-key and nothing too surprising was asked. I met with the outgoing store manager, and the person being promoted to take his place as store manager.

    Interview Details

    the hiring process was pretty laid back. just talked with me and asked what movies i liked and what i liked to do in general. i felt like it was more to see who i was and if i would fit with the current staff's personalities.

    Store Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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 Questions
    • 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.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. 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.

    I applied in-person. 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.
