    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Blockbuster.

    Interview

    the hiring process was pretty laid back. just talked with me and asked what movies i liked and what i liked to do in general. i felt like it was more to see who i was and if i would fit with the current staff's personalities.
