    Guest Services Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chico, CA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hollywood Video (Chico, CA) in June 2009.

    Interview

    Only had 1 interview. The questions were pretty basic interview questions-why do you want to work here, please tell me about your self, etc. The most prominent question was to say what you favorite movie was and why. I would say try to tell them something that is not of the typical "block busters" and something that shows more of your particular movie interests.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Hollywood Video (Houston, TX) in April 2008.

    Interview

    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.
