    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Hobby Lobby.

    Interview

    Once you are called for interview, you have to be taken to the back of the store by the manager. He sits you down and asks you questions from a pamphlet. He then records your responses. Next he will give you a sheet which contains the Math Test. If you aren't good with math you should study the following: Basic Addition, Subtraction, Multiplcation, Division and also REALLY important to study adding sales tax percentages and subtracting discount percentages. Some places may test you first then interview you or vice versa. If you don't pass the test you won't be hired. PS: Be familiar with your states sale tax % and percentages in general.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hobby Lobby (Orlando, FL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Process was very casual and relaxed. Lasted about 45 minutes. They did have you take a basic math test at end with no calculator. Less than 20 questions though and basic math skills. Seasonal help, no set hours and need to be flexible and available days, nights and Saturdays but that's typical for seasonal help.

    Full Time Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenville, TX
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hobby Lobby (Greenville, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Hobby Lobby conducted a 3-day hiring event at a local hotel in Greenville, TX. They interviewed for 40 positions. My number was 996. All of the interviewers were pleasant enough, although weary. The process was time consuming but fairly typical, except for a few points that fall into a gray area. 1) To be considered for an interview, applicants must sign a legal binding arbitration agreement, printed in the smallest font available. Then must sign two more times confirming that you read, understood & signed the first legal jargoned agreement.
    2) Religion is a very good thing, but not in the workplace. That might be awesome for some people, but my relationship with God is mine, not my employers.
    I do like Hobby Lobby & enjoy shopping there. Their interview process, however, changed my perception of their inner workings. Obviously, Hobby Lobby takes care of business, but I question how they take care of their employees.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Hobby Lobby (Austin, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was light and easy. My now boss called me about a week and a half after I applied for the job. I came in and we went over my application together. He asked what I would like to be paid hourly and wrote it down. I took a short math test to see how good I would be on the register and I passed with 100. The next week I started working on the register.

    Interview Questions

    • My now boss asked me what I would like to be paid hourly starting off, which was refreshing and surprising, and I could already tell that Hobby Lobby would accommodate my needs as much as possible.   1 Answer
