I worked at Coinstar full-time
Working for them as a field service technician was a pleasurable experience. You are able to somewhat set your own schedule and you get plenty of windshield time.
My area was between two other zones and it was absorbed by more senior technicians when we lost a large account in Florida, which resulted in my layoff. Other than that it was a great company to work for.
Advice to Management
Figure out a way to integrate technicians across both coin and redbox so that they can provide technical support.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Coinstar.
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.
