    Interview

    It happened over the phone and buy the time I was hired a month and a half had passed. Had an in person interview after the phone interview which was very informal which i thought was strange as i had applied to run one of their stores. The second interview was conducted on the phone by the DM while he was driving home from a baseball game.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hat World (Pittsburgh, PA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Quick, Didn't really ask any qualifying questions. Seemed like they were understaffed and the Regional didn't want to cover the store. No drug test, no real questions about my managerial skills. Just basic competency questions.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hat World (Boston, MA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Face-to-face interviews three times. They asked me about sports trivia, color coordination of team logos, leadership skills, and my selling skills. I had to make example sales pitches and presentations to the hiring manager. I think it was important to understand the local teams Overall, it was quite difficult- but well worth it, because I really liked the job.

    Lids Employee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbia, MD
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Hat World (Columbia, MD) in May 2011.

    Interview

    This interview was arduous. I was uncertain what position the interview was for because it was never listed on the advertisement. The District Sales Manager conducted the interview, and he threw all kinds of questions at me. Initially, it began with me completing a paper application at that store. All the employees at the store seemed generous. Then, I exchanged pleasantries with the Manager. The interview was conducted in the food court downstairs from the actual store. He emphasized sales and expenses during the interview. He said there will be times where there will only be 1 person running the store at a time, and there will be moments where this position will require you to train other employees. Also, he shared information about his work. He commutes all the way from Virgina twice a week to work. Presumably, he works at a store location in Virgina during the rest of the week. He also manages a store in Delaware. I felt prepared for the interview, and I know the interview went well. I made him laugh and vice versa. I thought for sure I would receive an offer, but I was incorrect. After the interview, I received an email saying the position was filled.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hat World in July 2011.

    Interview

    Went to a job fair ("Open Interview Session") after applying through CareerBuilder. Turn out was about 100 applicants. Was called for a preliminary interview, was asked 3 questions. Answered the questions, then was referred to a store manager for a full interview.

    After completing the interview, was told to report to a store the next morning for a "Floor Test", which is essentially a role-playing activity to see how well you interact with customers and how you can process information.

    Submitted a background check authorization, and waited about a week to hear back.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hat World in August 2009.

    Interview

    Fairly easy interview. I sat down with the store manager who was cool at the time and asked me basicly more about sports then actual job experience. he was looking more for a friend then he was an AM. Told me how the advancement opportunity was great just to find out its really not. I then sat down with the GM and he seemed like all people who work there will be doomed to fail unless you work hard and sell your soul for the company.
