    I worked at Hobbico full-time (more than a year)


    If your hobbies include anything that has to do with remote controlled cars/boats/planes or puzzles and models, this is a great place to work.


    Some of the employees treat this as a big social gathering while on the clock. A lot of cliques in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start cracking down on employees who consider this a hang out and then people wont have to stay later just to get the job done.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Hobbico.

    Interview Details

    I had to contact them a few times after I submitted my application to check the status. From interview to hire was about one month. The interviewer seemed very distant, aloof and did not seem to take notes. Perhaps this was a well dressed formality.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were few and not very challenging. Basic idea was to feel out the interviewee and it felt a bit cold. The most difficult question: Do you have a hobby or will you be into "the Hobby" at any point?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, everything was described as fixed and usual.
