Applying for Store Job
When you click to submit the application, a new window will open up giving you the opportunity to start a fresh application, review the FAQs, or restart an application you began earlier but did not finish.
You will first be asked to consent to a background check and to enter in your personal information like your name, address, contact information, and social. You'll be asked about your criminal history and then move on to your availability to work, your work history, highest level of education, and you have the option to provide any special recognitions or skills that you have that would be of value to Hollywood Video. Finally, you'll be asked if you can perform the tasks of the job in question and how many movies you generally watch per week. The application attempts to gauge your enthusiasm about the potential job by asking questions like, "Are you a movie buff?" or, "Do you get excited talking about movies you've just watched?"
You're asked which branch of Hollywood Entertainment you would like to work within and then you're asked which position you're interested in obtaining. You then fill out a portion of the application about attitudes.
Applying for Corporate Employment
The corporate job application starts off with a search. Choose the location and job category in which you are interested. If you would like to further the search, you may enter in a keyword or phrase. If there is no match for you when you conduct your search, you can enlist the services of a job agent who will notify you when a job match comes available. If you're open to the type of job you get and relocation, you can view all of the jobs at once and click to apply.
You'll get a job description and summary of responsibilities and qualifications. Let them know how you heard about the job and then upload your resume. If you don't have a resume, you can fill out a profile on the site instead. Finally, you can create a cover letter, fill in the diversity data, and submit the application.
If you are a teen, call the store in which you would like to work to check the age requirements before filling out the online application. They vary from state to state. Things to keep in mind as you fill out the application:
- Questions written in bold are mandatory
- You can't use the Back button to change some questions, so be sure to give your best answer every time
If your friends all call you the movie buff and you've got a passion for films, submit a Hollywood Video employment application and convince them you're a great fit for the company. You may find that you get great benefits and a position you love. Plus the exposure to the newest movies on DVD couldn't hurt.
