    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Hobby Lobby (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    You walk in and there is a math test which wasn't told to us before hand because it's a hiring event of 200+ people atleast. Which makes no sense because the registers and calculators if the register malfunctions you can use to calculate how much 7 1/2 sales tax is. You have to get minimum 8 right. You wait in line for the interview, 30 minutes atleast then you go up shake their hand introduce yourself and sit down then they grade the test. 20-30 seconds later I failed by one question and was told sorry and to leave.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hobby Lobby (Norman, OK) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was a fairly laid back interview. I was interviewed at my school's career services office by two of Hobby Lobby's employs that worked in their IT department, which was the department I was trying to intern with. They told me a little bit about the internship I was applying for, and asked about 8 general questions, and then opened it up to me to ask questions.

    Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oklahoma City, OK

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hobby Lobby (Oklahoma City, OK) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online. They emailed me a few days later asking for my availability for a phone interview (usually the first interview is in person, but they knew I lived over an hour away so they substituted it for a phone interview, which was very thoughtful of them). The phone interview was a very short and then we scheduled the technical interview which consisted of about 4 people, followed by another interview right after with the big boss.

    I got my rejection letter about a week or so after the interview.
    Overall my experience was very good. They were prompt and friendly. Way better than the other companies I've dealt with. The fact that they rejected me so quickly makes me want to work for them even more. They don't just leave you hanging for weeks after the interview. They do things right.

    Interview Questions
