    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hancock Fabrics (Hayden, ID) in May 2014.

    Interview

    The process was very professional and well managed. I found the opening on snag a job site on line and submitted my resume. I was called within a week and asked to come in for an interview. The store manager asked me about my experiences, past jobs, skills and hobbies and shared her vision for the company with me. By the time I left the interview I felt very clear about what was expected and ready to take my place in the company if hired.

    Interview Questions

    • I was prepared for all questions so nothing took me off grad but when I was asked why I left my last job I had to explain the situation with the failing health of my last boss and her failed store. This was hard for me as the situation was very sad.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was asked to come in for a second interview with the store manager and the regional manager as well. We discussed the terms for my employment with openness and came to a agreement in terms of benefits and compensation. I felt all my concerns and needs were respected.
