    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakbrook Terrace, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Redbox in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was approached by a recruiter at a staffing agency about a QA contract with RedBox. Met with the recruiter, the staffing agency wanted to present me to the RedBox hiring manager.

    First, RedBox closed the position cause they found few candidates and then decided to reopen it. After that the recruiter set up a phone interview with the Manager. I never received the phone call. I contacted the recruiter about it. Found out from the recruiter that RedBox's new QA Director wanted to hold off any further hiring. All of this going back and forth took several weeks.

    Application Details

    The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Redbox in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    My interview process took 5 months. Started with a recruiter on the phone, then phone interview with one of the hiring manager, then an in person panel and then another in person round of interviews. The recruiter was fantastic (she is no longer with the company) but I had bad vibes from the hiring manager and the panel. At the end, I did get an offer and accept but I do regret it to an extent.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Redbox in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    The corp. recruiter was very professional during the phone interview. I had a panel interview that was a little initmidating, very small room and five other people grilling me, so to speak,. The panel questions were predictable, mostly "give me an example of"..... regarding all of my past performance points. I go back for the presentation and final part of the interview process in a few days. Wish me luck!

    Redbox wants everyone to weigh in on the interviewee. Employees from several departments, whether you would interact during work or not, gets to interview the potential candidate to see if they would be a good fit for the company.

The department interview was more on the lines of how to fit into the team, expectations, and current processes.

    Operations Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Redbox.

    Interview Details

    I was selected for a phone interview for this position, but unfortunately didn't even get to have it. They had a recruiter who contacted me to set up the phone interview with another recruiter. Not only did they call 10 minutes after the scheduled interview, I was told right off the bat that a minimum requirement was one year in an operations role. She asked a little about my experience to tell me that she'll keep that in mind for any positions that come up in the future. I highly doubt it. I can appreciate her being upfront with me about the requirements, but no where in the job description did it mention the minimum one year of experience. That all being said, I am frustrated by the experience, because the person who reviewed my resume initially should have known the minimum requirements of the position before calling me to set up the phone interview. I don't think I'll be applying for any positions in the future with Redbox if they're this unorganized just with selecting resumes.
