    Shift Leader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Queens Village, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Hollywood Video (Queens Village, NY) in August 2010.

    Interview

    It was an entertaining interview. Felt very lax. First interview was with store manager. Talked in the back room about favorite movies and games. Overall mood was very casual. Nothing difficult at all, was very enjoyable. The attitude and nature of the review reflected the in store vibe and because it was positive from the get go, I knew it would be enjoyable to work there early on.

    Interview Questions

    • Again, there wasn't anything difficult about the interview. One that I hesitated on was where do you see yourself in 5 years, and then in 10.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no real negotiation as it was my first job. The first interview led to an interview with the district manager, who called a few days after the first interview. The conversation/interview was even more casual than the last! We walked around the store and talked about how the manager felt about me in the first interview, and then about the movies and games we walked by during the actual interview.

    Guest Services Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chico, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hollywood Video (Chico, CA) in June 2009.

    Interview

    Only had 1 interview. The questions were pretty basic interview questions-why do you want to work here, please tell me about your self, etc. The most prominent question was to say what you favorite movie was and why. I would say try to tell them something that is not of the typical "block busters" and something that shows more of your particular movie interests.

    Customer Service Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Westwood, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hollywood Video (Westwood, CA) in January 2010.

    Interview

    I had gone in to ask if there was any applications for the position that was available. After filling out an application and returning it the next day I was promptly called back for a interview a few days later. I was told to come in with a blue collar shirt, black slacks, and comfortable shoes. After a few questions regarding why I wanted to work there, (I was in school at the time) I was hired on the spot after the end of the interview. I was to start work the following week and I would begin training the next day. My manager was extremely nice and if not for him I would not have begun my career in customer service.

    Interview Questions

    • I was faced with the question of "What do I know about movies?" I admittedly did not know much, however I knew that I could help customers find what they needed using the system in place and in an efficient manner.   Answer Question
