Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager
Valdosta, GA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hobby Lobby in September 2009.

Interview Details – Quite lengthy and method based. The mere quantity of applicants in this price/experience range apparantley forces them to use a screening process that is quite impersonal.

Interview Question – Are you accustomed to following procedure or company policy?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – I was looking for more creative freedom where a person with self motivated inititave can stand out. They are in search of young impressionable minds who follow established structures.

Very Difficult Interview

Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager
Dallas, TX

The process took a day - interviewed at Hobby Lobby in October 2009.

Interview Details – Interviewer said he had many applicants ,immediately berated my experience and said he was eliminating the extra applicants .... the entire four minute process uncomfortable due to his advesarial approach.
My opinion of the company changed immediately from favorable to very unfavorable- if you treat people poorly before they go to work for you..why would things change after you were hired?
