Working at Blockbuster

  • Rehire? – 0 replies
    mbt1987 in Indiana 28 months ago
    Hi I used to work for Blockbuster and left with a 2 week notice a few years ago and figured that everything was fine. I recently applied to a Blockbuster near my school and they said that my application came up as non rehireable, I assume this was due to the DM who was unhappy with me at the time when I left but I am wondering if there is anything I can do to fix this situation? I did nothing wrong and was simply on the receiving end of a bitter DM and Store Manager who were upset that I was leaving "out of the blue" despite me giving them a two week notice. I am basically just wondering if there is anything I can do. I will be transferring universities in the fall and have considered applying to a store when I get to my school (which is 3 hours away from where I live now) I have heard that if you apply to a store in a different district then the rehire status will not show there any truth to this? if so I may just hold out and apply when I get transferred, though I was hoping to be hired again and be able to transfer stores.

    What do you think -- is this company going to survive and thrive? Are they looking to expand their staff, or do you think layoffs are inevitable? How does Blockbuster stack up against the competition?

    Hi, I tried BB 2 weeks promotional offer. I cancelled the plan within 2 weeks and returned the dvd's. Yet, BB charged me for entire month. I mailed their customer service about it and was lucky to get my money back. Then, 2 days back I received an email from BB that they have shipped 3 other movies ( Yes I had some movies left in the que) So now my Question is, since my account is no longer active with BB ( they show re-subscribe under my account ) and I am still receiving movies from them, should continue that ? ( will they charge me later on in that case )

    If the operations in Northern Ca are indicitive of the overall operations of Blockbuster....then the company is NOT worth the time of any experienced person with an ounce of integrity or ambition. Low pay and less in direction. The DM in the Redding area is incompetant and the store managers are poorly trained if at all. The Sacramento market is not much better...but as anyone knows in any retail...VOLUME covers many bad traits and covers poor management execution. Let's not even get into the HR team. Ineffective in a word, Failure in design.

    Every business has it's own style. What is the office environment and culture like at Blockbuster? Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers? What is a typical day in the life of an employee at Blockbuster?

    It's always hard to know what to expect when going in for that interview -- and preparation can make all the difference. What is the interview process like at Blockbuster? Any advice on striking the right note?
