    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Blockbuster (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    First interview took place at an open store, with many other potential employees. This 'group interview' is not for the faint of heart, or timid. You must be all in with attention to detail about movies and video games. Then you will be called for a second interview. This one is at another store all together, one on one, with someone that you didn't even see at the first and has no knowledge of what you went through the process before. Then she will tell you that she will call you in a week or so with her decision.

    Interview Questions

    • This was actually a game that was played with the group at the first interview. You are put on the spot and asked about an actor in a movie, then the next person says a co-star and the third person thinks of another in another movie. *This will change depending on the DM*   Answer Question

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Blockbuster (Lafayette, LA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    The district manager at the time was nice and laid back, this interview was very straight forward. More like a conversation, as long as you're honest- everything should fall into place.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Blockbuster (Corpus Christi, TX) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Well I arrived there and had to wait about 20 minutes for others to arrive. As soon as they did. We introduced ourselves, explained on how we'd sell a particular item and did a scavenger hunt. I ended up getting a 2nd interview, but all she wanted to know was my work history. She then explained the job. She said to wait for a call because she said a dm would have to review my application & do a background check. She never called though. I wouldnt apply though as I looked up the company and they are pretty much bankrupt.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Blockbuster (Englewood, CO) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Very customer focused job, also need to be detailed about your inventory management, very difficult to manage your inventory on their antiquated systems, you need to be able to manage your inventory on pen and paper more than anything. They asked basic questions about customer service mostly. Other questions were about your hiring experience, and employee corrective action procedures.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain a situation where you failed to meet a customers expectation.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They offered a reasonable salary based on the job requirements. I didn't negotiate much, but if they lowball you, and you have experience, push for 5-10% more.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Blockbuster (Greensboro, NC) in January 2012.

    Interview

    At the time of the job interview the country's economy was still recovering from the recession, especially in this part of the country. So their were at least 20 people there for the group interview session. Apparently they were doing large group interviews all week. It was very silly. We had to do role-playing for different scenarios in front of everyone. It was demoralizing to have so much competition for a minimum wage cashiering job.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Blockbuster (Oklahoma City, OK) in December 2011.

    Interview

    The hiring process when I signed up was ancient. They had people interviewing for Store manager as well as people in jeans and t-shirts that hadn't been washed in a week in the same circle. It was easy to stand out in that crowd if you had researched the company at all and had any smart sounding challenging questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Being asked to sell was a new one for me. Also the movie knowledge questions were weird. Luckily everyone was awful so I looked better than I was.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There really wasn't one. They asked me what I wanted. I quoted a high number and she said ok. Come to find out later I was one of the higher paid store managers in the state and I had the least experience. Really I was hired as a spite move to the company I believe from a District manager on the way out.

    Interview

    It was a group interview. It was quite fun, while we stood in a circle we were asked to name a movie and from that movie's cast we were to say another movie that a cast member was also in. After that we were given a list of movies and were asked to calmly and hastily locate them and bring them back to the group.
