I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Hancock Fabrics in April 2010.

Interview Details – Sent in resume. Took about a month to get any kind of feedback. Got a call from the DM.
Phone interview. Went well but, never got a call back for three weeks. I had to call him to follow up. Once got a face to face was hired pretty fast.

Interview Question – I can't think of a question that was not standard. Pretty much in the box.   Answer Question

Interviewed at Hancock Fabrics

Interview Details – The hiring practices of Minnesota Fabrics were like night and day compared to Hancock Fabrics. Most store managers were hired from sales associates within the company and completed a 1-2 year training program at 1-2 different stores to experience a variety of management styles and merchandising situations. The key factor in your training was to provide Excellent Customer service

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Hancock Fabrics in October 2009.

Interview Details – Smoke and mirrors info on the company and the job.
 What your told could not be in todays retail where all money is tight.
Ask for your needs in writing and your pay on the high side from the start, because you will earn it from this outfit.

Reason for Declining – My gut says that the DM's are told to micro manage, load on the hours, and burn them and turn them; till the next candidate comes along.
I'm looking for the long haul in a culture of respect.
