    Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hobbico (Chicago, IL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The in-person interview process was rather informal and relaxed, and did not follow the typical behavioral question format that most other companies religiously adhere to. This was a welcome relief, as it is usually difficult to get a good read of the position in those situations. Instead, I was able to discuss the position at length with a manager and an employee, and both offered detailed and helpful answers to each of my questions. By the end, I was able to get a solid understanding of how the team operated and what responsibilities the position entailed.

    This was one of the better in-person interview experiences that I've had, but unfortunately I never heard back from anyone after the interview. Numerous emails went unanswered and I eventually moved on to other opportunities.

    I would've rated this as a positive experience, but I felt it was a bit unprofessional that they ignored all attempts to contact them after the interview. I understand if I was not the right candidate for the position, but a simple form email or short response indicating that I was no longer being considered would have been greatly appreciated instead of silence.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hobbico.

    Interview

    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?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, everything was described as fixed and usual.

    Graphic Artist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hobbico in August 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed with an HR manager first who was very disinterested in me as a potential employee but simply wanted me to reiterate facts that were already disclosed on my resume. Quite standard questions. I was asked to describe every job I'd held that was listed on my application. The interview with the manager of the department where I would potentially be working was actually the best interview I'd ever been through. The manager was pleasant, articulate, relaxed, thorough and she complimented my personality and portfolio.
