    Former Employee - Assistant Manager

    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.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, IN
    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, IN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Family Video.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, I interviewed in store out front. I took a written test out front. The manager interiewing you will need to wait on customers as they are interviewing you. The test is one point each, so do not spend time on the long multiplication problem. Leave it to last. Doing something that takes time caust you a point expecially if you could have dont three by skipping something. Study your math. 70.00 less 20%. The boxed area of math is very time comsuming. Not alot of math but seems to weigh more than other tests. If you can not find the wrong number move on to the next one. So I missed getting the job by 5 points. Part-time is 70%. I had a great interview. You may reapply in 6 months, but they switch out new test each 6 months.

    Interview Questions
    • The box area is not sudoko as they say. It is across and over addition to find the wrong number in the box. Three numbers like 6,4,2 =12 or 6,4,3 = 14 So the wrong number is 3. This takes time, find it or move to the next box. Best achivement and turing point in your life. Just be positive.   View Answer
