    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter - interviewed at Hobby Lobby in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    a long and dragged out process. you have to apply first, then you have a phone interview. After that you have to send out an assessment to about 10 people to do a quick survey on you and your experience regarding the position. Then you have to do a test that's similar to a standardized one. Then you do your actual interview which in it self is a process..
