    Interview

    I inquired about an application on a whim while shopping at Hancock Fabrics as I am a frequent shopper at this particular store and I really enjoy the store's environment. I returned the application and sat down for an interview with the store manager the next day. The interview process was very straightforward as were the questions asked. I filled out some hiring paperwork that day despite not yet having the job - the manager needed to speak with his assistant manager before completing the hiring process. Several days later, I filled out the rest of the paperwork (such as direct deposit information) and I was hired.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were very straightforward - the hardest thing asked would be a standard such as "what are your weaknesses?"   Answer Question
