    I worked at Family Video full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free movies. Commission, flexibility. This place is a dream to work for in my opinion. I'm sure it is different for everyone. I started 50 cents above minimum and now make a dollar more than that. In less than a year I have worked my way from part time to assistant manager. I honestly love my job. When I graduate I would love to move even further up in the company.

    Cons

    No real breaks. There is a pretty high turnover rate as well. It seems that it takes a certain type of person to excel at this job. You must be motivated and a hard worker. Everything you do is tracked. If you aren't doing your job, EVERYONE knows it. This could be viewed as a pro as well. They get rid of the bad apples pretty fast. This company isn't afraid to fire you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Family Video.

    Interview Details

    They handle applications very unprofessionally. Had to fill out 6 because they kept misplacing it. First step is to interview with the one of the management team or full-timer. If they like you, you get rescheduled to take an hour long test that consists of math, alphabetizing, reading comprehension, spelling and more. If you manage to pass the test, and most don't, you then interview with the District Manager. If he/she approves, you're in

    Interview Questions
    • Questioning was really easy. Mush easier than the test. You personality counts for 90 percent of the interview process.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation phase. You get what they offer or move on.
