    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Blockbuster in November 2010.

    Interview

    My experience at being interviewed by Blockbuster was a job fair to which I was invited. Several folks were being interviewed at the store, while the store was open for business. There was a one on one interview, and then we were given assignments on how to approach customers and told what was the latest promotion in the store. Then we practiced on the interviewers.

They will put forth certain tasks that you have to do with a team member, but the important thing is HOW you accomplish the task (working together), not the end result.
