    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hobby Lobby in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I first applied on line. Within a couple of days I received an email from the recruiter to set up a phone screen. The recruiter was very forthcoming with information about Hobby Lobby. He asked why I was interested in working for Hobby Lobby and we also walked through my work history. He shared that during the 4rh quarter, a 6 day work week is to be expected and just wanted to ensure I was fully aware of the expectation. He also asked what my salary requirements were.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hobby Lobby in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I filled out a paper application on site, and got a call later on that week. We set up an interview for four days later. I was in a joint interview with one other person. The store manager stood across from us and asked us the same question, one after the other. Then, he gave us a timed math test. It was all basic division/multiplication, and word problems relating to customer interaction.

    He said he'd be in contact soon, and I got a call the next day for a follow up interview whereupon he requested I bring my SS card. The next interview was basically him just asking my availability and filling out the job paperwork. He then gave me the tour, and we set up when I'd begin work. The whole process took less than two weeks.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Hobby Lobby in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Filled out application. Not really an interview. I was over qualified with 20 years customer service and cash handling experience. The manager looked at my credentials and he gave me a math test. After I finished he gave me paper work to fill out for tax purposes, no ,background check which did not matter to me but maybe to others. Watched videos about the store, policy's, safety procedures, and more. About 3 hours total time.

    Part Time Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Prescott, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Prescott, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Hobby Lobby in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    The Manager was very bland and monotone. He didn't tell me anything exiting about his company that would make me want to work there. I asked routine questions but I felt like there should have been more enthusiasm on his part. Not just the attitude like "hey its a job and you will be lucky if I decide to hire you". You have to take a math test consisting of 16 question. mostly comprised of percent problems. I missed four, and I'm not sure if that would keep them from hiring someone.

    Interview Questions
    • What is your biggest weakness? What did you like about your last job? What did you dis-like about your last job? I have never believe these questions always give you proper insight to an employees work ethic, but most of the questions are of that nature.   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    when asked what the minimum and maximum hours for part time I was told 0 - 34. I can not afford to go to work for a company that may occasionally work me zero hours.
