    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement. You are challenged to sell a lot of extras such as Designer Deals and Contests. You are given an opportunity to develop your management skills by working here.

    Cons

    Takes a toll on your personal life. Like much of retail, you need more payroll. There really isn't any explanation as to how payroll is given. Tasks are often added without additional payroll.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Hancock Fabrics in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was having conversation with manager while shopping in the store and mentioned I was looking for employment. She ask me to fill out application - she was needing part time help. At her request I returned a couple of days later to fill out application. We talked about the position. She was friendly and it was very casual - she was waiting on customers while we talked.
