    Interview

    It was a joke, 6 min phone call. Asked me to explain my last job then asked if I hate any questions. The answers were very vanilla. Asked about hours was told 55 per week but 65+ during Nov and Dec and had to be 6 day work weeks. Asked about comp time or bonus for working the 6th day was told no your salary.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hobby Lobby.

    Interview

    It was a very basic interview with the manager, with questions applying to previous job, customer service experience, and difficulties in work and how you have handled them. Manager was very nice, personable, and while he could sense my nerves he was very reassuring. Despite Hobby Lobbys religious views, it was never mentioned in this interview. Interview was followed with a math test, involving multiplication and percentages, ie, the price of a sale item after discount. Unlike other job interviews I've been to, I was not left to complete this test, but had to complete it directly across from him, without any input on the time needed to complete it. Not the most comfortable experience. I did not finish the interview, unfortunately.

    Easy. 1:1 with the store manager. All normal questions. She went into a little about the religious culture of the company (the CEO prays before any meeting at headquarters), which should have been a red flag!

    Awkward for a retail job. More emphasis placed on skills for a cashier sales clerk position. It felt fake. Even though Hobby Lobby is considered christian it was never mentioned.
