I applied online - interviewed at Coinstar in May 2010.
Interview Details – Limited knowledge about the future of the company, strategic vision, or what was needed to grow the company most effectively. Nice people, but declined next step due to issues with lead of Marketing

Reason for Declining – See responses below. Overall, lack of company vision
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Coinstar in December 2011.
Interview Details – The interview process was very deliberate and lengthy. It was broken into three different sessions over three different days. The company uses lots of behavior based questions. The recruiters were very professional and respectful. The hiring teams were well prepared and enthusiastic. Dress was business casual. Very nice offices in which to interview.
Interview Question – We've gone through a lot of recruiters. Why would you want to work here? View Answer
Reason for Declining – The compensation was below the rest of the market.

Interview Details – White boarding code
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Coinstar.
Interview Details – I had initial phone screenings with the same Coinstar recruiter for three different jobs, all at or above Manager level. All three interviews went very well as far as I could tell. Having dealt with Coinstar as a customer for more than 10 years, I know their business better than most outsiders. Therefore, I thought I'd at least get a second interview. At the end of each phone screening, the recruiter told me that he would call me back within a specified period of time to let me know whether I made the cut for the next round. No call! After allowing another 4-5 days go by I had to call him back and ask the status of my application. It was at this point, each time, that I was told that I would not be moving on to the next interview. I understand that every applicant will not be contacted. However, when their recruiter tells you that he will call you back either way, I believe that he is obligated to do just that.
Interview Question – Nothing off the wall. Mostly typical questions about how you have had to multi task and prioritize workload, etc. Answer Question
I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Coinstar in December 2011.
Interview Details – Simple phone interview to screen viable candidates
Interview Question – What experience do you have viable for this position? View Answer
Very Easy Interview
The process took 3 days - interviewed at Coinstar in July 2011.
Interview Details – I interviewed them. They asked me if I could work graveyard shits. I got the job. The interview was as laughable as the job is. NOC manager is a very interesting character....to say the least.
Negotiation Details – Simple.
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Coinstar in September 2011.
Interview Details – I was a current employee at the time and was looking for advancement during the company's restructure. There was a phone call from HR to narrow down those who were qualified for the position. After that, we underwent a conference call phone interview with the newly hired Regional Manager and the Director of Operations. Then the possible candidates were compared to one another. It was down to myself and an external candidate and he was chosen because my management experience was all OJT and he had schooling in Business. That individual struggle with communication and leadership for almost a year. I left the company to pursue my schooling (not encouraged by Coinstar) and he was let go shortly afterwards.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Coinstar in June 2010.
Interview Details – Sent my resume to hiring company Volt, they responded with their interest, I took a skills test, got called for an interview, had a one on one interview with the lead supervisors, very relaxed and calm, straight forward to the point. Was hired with a few other people within the next couple days. Other employees were welcoming, and helpful to teach us the ropes.
Interview Question – How many days off should an employee get each year? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Coinstar in January 2010.
Interview Details – The first thing they want to do is talk about the job discription and let you know about corporate structure. I found that the job discription changed quite a bit from the posting. The posting indicated that some travel would be needed and interested canidates could work from home.
During the interview I found that the job would require almost 90% of the workload to be spent on the road. It would be better if this was spelled out on the first posting so canidates could make a better assesment of applying. The interviewer quickly caught on to my suprise (as to the amount of travel) and was very understanding. Looks like this might have happened before.
Over all it might be a good job for someone with no family
Interview Question – How do you feel about working on the road 3 weeks + a month View Answer
