    Love Hobby Lobby!!

    Office Manager/Cards and Party Lead (Current Employee) Hagerstown, MD

    ProsGreat environment, great co-workers, excellent management, fast paced environment, excellent pay and benefits, becAuse the hiring process is very selective, only the best will be offered full time. This company is great I am so thankful they came to my area!

    ConsCould take more than a year to get full time status. Relays are very demanding, sometimes the store doesn't have enough people to deal with the demand. constantly moving and condensing seasonal (but thats retail right?)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    If you have to work retail, work here!

    Department Head (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat pay, Sundays off, generous vacation/sick time, yearly bonuses, good insurance coverage, and no crazy hours during the holidays.

    ConsNot much room for advancement, still using old-school technology, putting out Christmas in June, the occasional nasty customer, and you are constantly covered in glitter.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTechnology needs to be advanced, and merchandise programs should be changed by region (i.e. cowboy decor really doe not sell in the midwest)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    i never imagined i would work at such a great company!

    Buyer (Current Employee) Oklahoma City, OK

    Prosthis company gave me a chance when others would not. They have given me raises and bonuses every year that are a lot more than national average and, i didnt even know i got a bonus!
    i was able to move up from data entry to a buyers position without college experiance. (i was interviewed and they judged me for what kind of person i am and, gave me the job).
    when my kids are sick, they tell me to go home and take care of them and, i am still getting paid because , im salary.

    Consbecause this is a large company there are issues with comunication between dept's within the company.
    they may do something that effects your job and not think to tell you about it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep managing this company with the same goals and, leading by example. Remember to Listen to employees ideas and consider changes that could make your dept and, the company a better place to work.

    Great company to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Birmingham, AL

    ProsCompany values, easy to get off for family events/reasons. Easy to embrace culture of their retail philosophy. Able to learn different jobs

    ConsLacking technology when it comes to checking in stock items for customers, ordering process is a long and time consuming process. A lot of physical work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are very good people who are in an assistant manager role who should be made co managers vs always hiring from the outside first.
