    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Hollywood Video in February 2008.

    Interview

    It started with me applying online. From there, the store manager called me and signed me up for a 1 on 1 interview with her in the store. I completed a personality test beforehand, which it seems was the basis for choosing candidates for interviews. She asked me a whole lot of hypothetical questions about situations that would arise in the store, and the standard "what is your greatest strength, what is your greatest weakness" etc.

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Hollywood Video (Kalamazoo, MI) in June 2009.

    Interview

    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.

    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.
