Interview Details – after completing an online questionnaire i received an email to schedule a phone interview. they gave 15 minutes intervals through out the day up to 10pm.

Designer Interview

Designer
Kansas City, MO

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Hallmark in February 2012.

Interview Details – The phone interview only lasted less than 2 minute. After the recruiter asked my visa status, the recruiter did not even care about how much ability the candidate has and how much time the candidate spent on preparing for the interview. The recruiter just said Hallmark never sponsor any working visa. Now I understand why Hallmark is such a obsolete company and lacks international view.

Interview Question – What is your visa status?   Answer Question
