    Interview

    They were fairly desperate for help, so the interview went quickly due to my level of skills and knowledge. In retrospect, I should have asked THEM more questions about overall corporate understanding of such things as art materials and supplies, and art conservation and history.

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Hobby Lobby (Killeen, TX (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I got a phone call and they told me come in for a assessment. The assessment was about math, which I completed quite easily. There was no time limit and the math questions dealt with basic arithmetic and percents. I was contacted days later for the interview which went quite well and I'm hoping they get back to me.

    Interview

    Took 2 weeks. Interviewed with manager then offered position a few days later. There were very redundant questions that upper management requires. Overall was quick and easy. It's just retail.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Hobby Lobby (Garland, TX (US)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    It was actually a pretty easy interview! The questions were easy. They're just questions interviewers would ask in interviews like what are your strengths, weakness, achieve above and beyond for a customer, good experience, bad experience, etc. there was a math part of the test and it's fairly easy. I only had trouble with doing 7 1/2 sales tax since I'm not so good with decimals, but the manager let me use a calculator. Overall, you just have to relax and talk a little bit more than you should! I was offered on the spot for seasonal for $10/hr.

    Negotiation

    Interview

    Applied in store. Manager makes you jump through a lot of hoops to get the job. He will tell you to call him on different dates and then not be available to see how dedicated and determined you are about getting a job there. Unless of course you know someone, then it's much easier. It took me 3 months and 5 to 6 tries to get hired
