    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Blockbuster in April 2009.

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Blockbuster (Vacaville, CA) in October 2008.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a call back from the Store Manager. Went in for an interview and he asked a lot of questions about experience in sales. He tried to push me toward starting as an Assistant Manager and working my way up. All follow-ups resulted in further stalling from the Store Manager, at which point I decided to just move on.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Blockbuster (Marietta, GA) in May 2009.

    Interview

    They really didn't ask anything that complicated. One of the only out of placed asked question was "I want you to sell me this clipboard and upsell me that pen." They seem to be quite big on the whole upselling thing, so just keep that in mind. They might ask something like what's your favorite game, then right after they'll ask you to explain why a customer should buy that game. Stuff like that and nothing all that bad really.
