    I have been working at Redbox

    Pros

    Redbox culture is in transition from matured start up to corporate. That being said it is and will never be the stuffy environment most old school work environments will be. It is a comfortable environment with many motivated and intelligent people. There are opportunities to grow and a flexible work environment allows you to work hard and still have some work life balance.

    Cons

    Redbox is still less than 15 years old so there has been a decent amount of change from year to year. Some of the decisions by the upper management in recent years have not always worked in the companies favor and it has been the cause for re-orgs and budget shifts. While the company is still successful, it is sometimes hard to see a long term career in such a volatile environment. In the short term, it is great to get some experience, work with great people and have short term successes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand the product offering and find a course everyone can get behind. Stick with it and drive the company in a true direction.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Redbox.

    Interview Details

    First interview was a phone interview with an HR employee who asked typical interview questions, "what would you do in this situation?", "How would you handle this?". 2nd interview was a face to face interview with direct manager. This was less of an interview and more of a rundown of the job, assignments, responsibilities, etc. 3rd and final interview was with direct managers supervisor over the phone. His questions where limited asking if I could handle specific aspects of the job.
