Workday of a Redbox ‘Ninja’

Redblog, the official blog of Redbox, has run a story detailing a day in the life of a “ninja”, one of the Redbox employees responsible for stocking and maintaining the company’s kiosks. If you ever wanted to know who these people are and what they do, the article is a great read. Here are some highlights:

  • David Dunning, the ninja profiled in the article, manages 189 kiosks and seven service representatives in the Chicago area.
  • Ninjas usually set their own hours and some choose to work in the middle of the night, when there are few customers around.
  • Redbox kiosks provide their operators with large quantities of data regarding their rental traffic, stock levels, etc.
  • The kiosks can be remotely controlled via a digital interface, such as jiggling the mechanism via the ninja’s laptop to release a jammed disc.

Does this sound like a fun job to you, Insiders? Have you ever run into a Redbox ninja hard at work as you visited a kiosk?

    Yeah, and when they are servicing a kiosk making you wait, *demand* a promo code for your time.

    A Redbox ninja: Now that’s a suck job. I’d rather have a blow job.

    I have never ran into one of them but one night the machine I went to was left unlocked. Guess I should have called and reported and maybe I could have gotten a couple free rentals. Just locked it back and used the free code I got off of this site ;) Does sound like a cool gig though.

    Interesting. I was hoping to find a little about what kinds of $$ they make. I’ve never seen our local Redbox ninja.
