Co Manager Interview

Co Manager
Lakeland, FL

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Hobby Lobby in October 2013.

Interview Details – a long and dragged out process. you have to apply first, then you have a phone interview. After that you have to send out an assessment to about 10 people to do a quick survey on you and your experience regarding the position. Then you have to do a test that's similar to a standardized one. Then you do your actual interview which in it self is a process..

Interview Question – They asked if I knew it was a Christian based company which made me feel uncomfortable.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – you should try to get 2 weeks vacation from the start which is easy. and id fight for every dollar because raises are once a year based on evaluation.

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Boardman, OH

I applied in-person - interviewed at Hobby Lobby in August 2014.

Interview Details – Sat down with the manager and started through typical questions. He got a phone call and left the room for about 5 minutes to talk to his employees about something, then resumed a typical interview. Took a percentages math test that he let me retake once he taught me how to do the math (it's been years since math class!)

Interview Questions

Reason for Declining – I had another interview the next day and was honest about it. He understood and let me get back to him.

Co Manager Interview

Co Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hobby Lobby in February 2014.

Interview Details – Pretty much just a phone interview and a face to face interview with a recruiter. While i was in the store for my interview with the recruiter I walked the store with the store manager as well. The delivery from the store manager and how life is was far from the reality once you start working there. I guess that goes along with the politically correct delivery when you are around corporate officials.

Interview Question – Basic situation questions, leadership style, weaknesses, what you need to improve on in your opinion, etc.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate as I had recently been laid off from a closing retailer, however I since have found out that you can negotiate salary, bonus, AND vacation time. Definitely negotiate vacation time as you do NOT get any for your first year!

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.
