    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed 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?

    Interview Details

    They said that the summer was the "dead season" for the store, even though they had applications out front with a sign saying they were going to hire. I filled out an application and never heard anything back. Apparently the winter months are the best times to apply for this store.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Hobby Lobby in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    After 3 weeks from returning application in person and hit-n-miss follow-ups with manager, I was called in for interview. Before any consideration for interview, however, I was given a math test in which there were between 15-20 questions. Math test had to be done by hand, no calculator, and within 45 minutes. I was not given an interview because I was not able to complete everything.

    Co-Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Hobby Lobby.

    Interview Details

    Very long process to go through. It took eight weeks to finally have a face-to-face interview. You go through a phone interview, then they ask for a minimum of seven (7) references. Then, they ask you to do an assessment test (which takes up to two hours to take). After that, then you may have a chance to interview. My interview took three hours.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nowhere, OK
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hobby Lobby in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Ehh...I don't really have too much to say..just trying to fill in the 50 word minimum. The interview was in depth and had questions and a math test. The math test is difficult if you haven't been in school for a long time. But it is doable. That's all.

    Interview Questions
    • Math test was the most difficult. They Had many other questions that I cannot remember. The interview was in depth and I believe I had a background check. I think also a drug test. The interview was a packet of papers, question and answer. Maybe about 30 questions or so. Made me kind of nervous, but it wasn't terrible.   Answer Question

    Co Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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!
