Cashier Interview

Cashier
Albuquerque, NM

I applied in-person - interviewed at Hobby Lobby in October 2013.

Interview Details – The time it took to receive a call back was quite lengthy. I wasn't directly asked about my religion (although they are a very Christian company) but I was indirectly persuaded to share what I was. I felt I would not have been hired if I had said I was anything but Christian. The interview wasn't terribly formal, the conversation was casual. The questions were fairly easy. I felt I was judged more on my personality than anything else.

Interview Question – The questions were very simple. The most difficult one would have to be, "What is your greatest weakness?"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It was simple, they offered more than I had asked.

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hobby Lobby in January 2013.

Interview Details – I filled out a paper application on site, and got a call later on that week. We set up an interview for four days later. I was in a joint interview with one other person. The store manager stood across from us and asked us the same question, one after the other. Then, he gave us a timed math test. It was all basic division/multiplication, and word problems relating to customer interaction.

He said he'd be in contact soon, and I got a call the next day for a follow up interview whereupon he requested I bring my SS card. The next interview was basically him just asking my availability and filling out the job paperwork. He then gave me the tour, and we set up when I'd begin work. The whole process took less than two weeks.

Interview Question – "What do you know about the company? Who's the CEO?"   View Answer

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Hobby Lobby.

Interview Details – I got a phone call from Hobby Lobby and they asked me which day and time would be best for me to come interview.

I got there and sat down with the manager at his office.

I took a short math test, since I was applying for cashier position.

There was the standard sorts of questions about "what are your skills and experiences" and "what are your weaknesses" "what do you bring to the team"
The manager was very interested in making sure I'd had experience in retail before, and was able to learn and react to different situations.

Interview Question – "Why should I hire you instead of anyone else who applied"   Answer Question

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Hobby Lobby in October 2010.

Interview Details – Interviewed in-person with the store manager only. First had to pass a very basic written arithmetic test without the use of a calculator. Then it was standard interview questions, and lots of boring background information about the company's history. Took over an hour because the store manager was very chatty.

Interview Question – Although I had no trouble with this, applicants who didn't pass the math test would be immediately dismissed from the interview.   Answer Question
