I applied online and interviewed at Hobby Lobby.
Interview Details – Received an email within a week asking to set up a phone interview. Recruiter was pleasant and the questions were basic in nature Based on the questions and comments from the recruiter it's obvious that they are looking for young people with a desire to be relocatable at will. Not what I was looking for.

Interview Details – Very long process to go through. It took eight weeks to finally have a face-to-face interview. You go through a phone interview, then they ask for a minimum of seven (7) references. Then, they ask you to do an assessment test (which takes up to two hours to take). After that, then you may have a chance to interview. My interview took three hours.

Interview Details – When you apply have to wait for an initial phone interview. If they like you then you go to a second interview with HR. If HR likes you interview with one of the store managers. They also give you an overview of what is required to do. If they like you the call you about a week later with an offer. The whole process takes about a month to month and a half.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Hobby Lobby in May 2013.
Interview Details – Nice recruiter who embellished the opportunity to work here. My only interview. He was a very nice person and we connected quickly. He was a former store manager and was in charge of recruiting for a large portion of Texas. He is probably streched thin in trying to staff every store and c\onstantly hiring replacement staff.
Interview Question – Nothing comes to mind. Pretty typical question and answer session View Answer
Negotiation Details – They have a flat starting rate and bonus for incoming co-managers. No negotiation, but better than average starting pay for a co or assistant manager. Turns out the job isn't worth any kind of money. Trust Me!!

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Hobby Lobby in June 2012.
Interview Details – After applying online, I was contacted by the recruiter over the phone. The initial phone interview consisted of the standard questions regarding my background. After approximately 15 minutes of these questions, I was invited to meet the recruiter at a neutral location approximately half way between my residence and the recruiter's office. Upon meeting the recruiter at the hotel, the recruiter started by saying that the purpose of this interview was to try to "scare me off" from the job. After three hours of describing the job and responsibilities, showing videos from a laptop, and filling out paperwork, I was asked, on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being high, what my level of interest was in joining the company. After the interview, I was asked to wait while a background check and reference check were completed. Once those came back, I was given a tentative offer, to be confirmed after a drug test.
