    Gsi Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kalamazoo, MI
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Hollywood Video in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    Called in for an interview and spoke with the store manager who asked a couple questions about my past work experience and some simple behavioral questions about interactions with customers or projects I've done, my strengths etc, usual stuff. It's a video store so the process isn't very intense, they just want to make sure you aren't going to steal from them.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Hollywood Video in April 2008.

    Interview Details

    I had to go through 3 interviews which I don't know why. I thought it was a little much for a job where I would be renting videos to people. The first interview was with the assistant manager. She wasn't very smart, but she wanted to get to know me. I don't think she had any say in the process. Second interview was lame as well, just a few questions. Third interview was the important one.
