    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Hallmark in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Filled out and completed online application. Contingent upon submitted information, if a match, all available positions would be displayed. After applying you will be given the opportunity to schedule a phone interview either right away or at a later date (selected by you) requiring about 15min. The phone interview was very basic and monotone, just an overview of your personal information, the job position & requirements, also asking if physical ability would be an issue. I was then asked to summarize what was just asked of me to ensure that I understood the job in its entirety.

    Interview Questions
    • I was a little taken off guard when asked to repeat back what she had just said to me and what was already submitted in the job discription   Answer Question
