    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Blockbuster in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Very easy interview.

    I was asked to go to the back room and had a 1:1 interview with a nice lady. There were general questions like why do you want this job and what would you bring to the company. There were also movie related questions. What is your favorite move and why? Overall very easy. Unfortunately they had to downsize a week after the interview and I didn't get the job. Not sure if they do a background check or drug test.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Blockbuster in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was invited to something called an audition. The address given was not very useful since the store had a different address in the window. Fortunatly I had time to check out the location the day before.
    The exercises included naming a film to someone, who had to name an actor in it. Then we broke into groups and raced to find a list of titles.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Blockbuster in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Expect to be interviewed by managers that do NOT run your store, and expect to be interviewed by three of them at once. They were very nice and asked questions about my hobbies and skills rather than experience, they look for somebody that would be a good fit for the store and will get along well with other employees.

    Interview Questions

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Blockbuster in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Was called in for a SHIFT LEAD position because they had hired an assistant already. Easy interview, talked for a long time but was never called back. Store manager had said "Gee your qualified enough to take my job!" I guess I need to undersell myself. The position is designed for an entry-level person and my 15 years plus of retail sales and management closed the door on this one for me.
