    Pros

    Basically make your own schedule, company car, a TON of vacation days, watching movies before they are released, most importantly...great people to work for who truly care about their employees. Job is perfect for anyone looking for an easy job.

    Cons

    Some issues would be that there is no real room for advancement or department change if you do not live in Oak Brook, Illinois. Basically you only have merchandisers (FSR1), techs (FSR2) and the manager (ROS) in any market. If you want to do something outside of the field, you will either have to move or find a new job.

    Advice to Management

    No adivice, I can understand why the business is the way it is.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There wasn't any negotiation.
