    Interview Details

    Talk about a farce, when you interview, you get the impression that you will be getting all of these great benefits, WRONG, only if you fit their biased generalization of what an employee should be, then you will get one of 15 full time positions in a store.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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

    I interviewed in-person. 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 Questions
    • Although I had no trouble with this, applicants who didn't pass the math test would be immediately dismissed from the interview.   Answer Question

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Hobby Lobby in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Their advertisement claimed they were looking for $14.+/hr Department Heads and I interviewed specifically for that position. I was told that should be no problemo with my background. I was offered a "job in frames" which I thought was fishy. Went on my time to store and was told that the Store Manager's son's BF was hired already for the position and that they had 4 framers and two associates trained as framers. The 24yo Frame Department Head last and only job was he was with a moving company as a day laborer. wow

    Co-Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    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.
