    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Hobby Lobby.

    Interview

    Met with the manager and answered a few generic HR questions. We were required to take a very simple math test, in which we could use a calculator. Afterwards we discussed how to memorize the sale ad and discussed pay. I was given a quick tour of the breakroom and shown where to go for the schedule.

    Interview

    Very short--I was only asked 2-3 questions. I knew someone in the company, so that's how I got the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • "Would you be interested in moving to another department if there was a need?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Also very short--it honestly extended into my first few days at the job. I had applied for a cash-handling position, but was made a department manager instead.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Hobby Lobby.

    Interview

    When you apply have to wait for an initial phone interview. If they like you then you go to a second interview with HR. If HR likes you interview with one of the store managers. They also give you an overview of what is required to do. If they like you the call you about a week later with an offer. The whole process takes about a month to month and a half.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They have a salary range. They usually stay in that range that is not very wide.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Co-Manager Interview

    Interview

    Very extensive , over three months starting with online app then a number of tele interviews followed by an online assessment test running about two hours then a face to face with recruiter covering over two hrs at which I felt went well but after taking offer I have doubts that my recruiter knows the true reality of what actually is going on in these stores. I was quoted average work week of 55 hrs except holidays but in reality is 65+ and at no time was I told that I would be required to work 7:30am to 10:pm with no chance to grab a meal let alone to use the restroom. Ether my recruiter is naive or bs artist.

    Interview

    Took 2 weeks. Interviewed with manager then offered position a few days later. There were very redundant questions that upper management requires. Overall was quick and easy. It's just retail.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Hobby Lobby.

    Interview

    I had to call and check the status of my applications. I applied and never heard anything. I called the corporate office the lady I spoke to was nice. She forwarded my information to the proper recruiter. He called me at an unscheduled time and interviewed me. . Of course it was just because I called the corporate office because he was just going through the motion.
