    I have been working at Family Video

    Pros

    Flexible hours, Decent pay for entry level jobs, Discounted/Free rentals

    Cons

    Many part time employees tend to be immature and have poor work ethic, so you can get stuck with a majority of the workload. Closing with only one person at midnight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company says customer service is number one so it should be. Managers shouldn't just base hours off sales; it should also include the better employees.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Family Video.

    Interview Details

    Issue is that the interview process is done while manager or interviewer is still assisting customers and in middle of store. There is no time dedicated to the interviewee at all. You are second or third. Even testing is done in middle of the noise and distraction of customers.

    Interview Questions
    • Standard interview questions. Nothing difficult or out of ordinary.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Was told that if I wanted job I had to shave face, why, who knows. Took job but then saw how many guys they turned Away due to facial hair. Think they prefer young girls with low cut shirts. Because in my experience they are not held to dress code like the guys having to be in shirts and ties at times.
