Field Support Representative (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – February 26, 2016
I worked with Redbox for several years, in two different markets for two different supervisors. The job is very team-oriented. You travel to your market warehouse once a week to pick up your movies, prep any other needed materials and meet with your team. Travel from kiosk to kiosk on your own to merchandise. Very little direct supervision - must be self-motivated.
Set your own hours, good mileage reimbursement, great benefits package, fun job
Working outdoors in the elements on bad weather days, working holiday weeks, recent changes make it difficult to make up after a sick day

Field Service Representative II (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – January 5, 2016
As an FSR II, Your days will not be consistent. The pay is decent but the benefits are among the best of any company I have been associated with. Training is weak, weak, weak. Expect to train yourself. Management will expect you to know your job right away. I was with the company for 13 months and led my market in performance the last ten months consecutively. Recognition for a job well done should not be expected. Some days may be 12 to 14 hours long depending on your market. Overtime is discouraged. Meaning you may have some days that you have to cut short due to some days running long. This varies day to and week by week. Not very family friendly. Not much room to advance. Pay raises are practically non existent. I never heard of or saw any raises. If you are accustomed to being an overachiever, look elsewhere. There were multiple Executive position changes with Outerwall/Redbox during my employment. Who is in charge this month?
Regional Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 29, 2015

Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Lake Orion, MI – August 7, 2015
Redbox is a great place to work. It gives me a chance to work on my own, get my job done on my own time. My Co-workers are great to work with, we help each other other when needed. I have supportive management.
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – July 28, 2015
I learned to build up my productivity. To help out my coworkers in need as a team player or a lending hand or ears to listen. Hardest part is maintaining a full table of cases when the coworker does his or her part on the machines.
upper management change this job into a night mare... no work life balance.....no advancement.... no job security.... it use to be a a great place to work now its, will i have my job tomorrow? working towo to three positions at once is horrible... .. we use to have good paying bonuses now its pennies.
Work at your own pace and responsible for your own stuff
Field Service Representative (Former Employee) – Norcross, GA – May 22, 2015
It can quite hectic but when I worked there I like the freedom and personal schedule. It allowed me to live on the schedule I liked and as long as the work got done by the end of the week, then my bosses were happy.
kept busy, met a bunch of customers, free movies
had to get work done no matter what. (ala Holidays and bad weather)
Merchandising Specialist (Current Employee) – El Paso, TX – December 17, 2014
Always on the go type of job. Meet lots of people. Learned to use my time wisely. Co- works are smart and fun to work with. Hardest part about the job is working outdoors in the elements. Best part about the job is the flexibility to do other things.
Field Service Rep 2 (Current Employee) – New Jersey Market – October 17, 2014
A day as a Redbox FSR2 required a lot of organization and route optimization to get you to the sites that require fixing. There were everything from frozen PC reboots - smashed touchscreen. Changing lightbulbs and general maintenance was apart of the job. What i liked most about Redbox was having the freedom not to be micromanaged every day. We all emailed each other our daily priorities and would go about our work from there.
tightening budget, cutbacks, slow when they need to rehire
Video Games Software - Buyer II (Current Employee) – Oakbrook Terrace, IL – September 22, 2014
Redbox is a growing company that provides many opportunities for individuals to provide immediate impact. I was able to learn and develop many skills necessary to become successful within my career progression.
