Customer Service Interview

Customer Service
Westwood, CA (US)

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Hollywood Video in January 2010.

Interview Details 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 Question – 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

Guest Services Representative Interview

Guest Services Representative
Chico, CA (US)

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hollywood Video in June 2009.

Interview Details 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.

Manager Interview

Manager
Houston, TX (US)

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Hollywood Video in April 2008.

Interview Details I had to go through 3 interviews which I don't know why. I thought it was a little much for a job where I would be renting videos to people. The first interview was with the assistant manager. She wasn't very smart, but she wanted to get to know me. I don't think she had any say in the process. Second interview was lame as well, just a few questions. Third interview was the important one.

Gsi Interview

Gsi
Kalamazoo, MI (US)

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Hollywood Video in June 2009.

Interview Details Called in for an interview and spoke with the store manager who asked a couple questions about my past work experience and some simple behavioral questions about interactions with customers or projects I've done, my strengths etc, usual stuff. It's a video store so the process isn't very intense, they just want to make sure you aren't going to steal from them.

Interview Question – Asked me what I would do if a customer complained about their late fee.   View Answers (2)
