    I worked at Hancock Fabrics part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work is fun. It was exciting to help customers and hear about their projects. I also enjoyed working my my colleagues.

    Cons

    There is not much opportunity for advancement. Corporate puts pressure on employees and sets high goals to reach without making employees feel valued. Corporate also does not take the time and effort to assess how reasonable these goals in lieu of working environment and other circumstances.

    Advice to Management

    PLEASE show your employees you care about them. Reach out to them and connect with them on corporate visits. Make them feel valued and the return will be great.

    I worked at Hancock Fabrics part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Other employees are okay to get to know. Other than that, not much.

    Cons

    Store was in poor repair and dirty Poorly managed Employees overworked and under paid No breaks Not enough hours

    Advice to Management

    House your stores in decent buildings. Have a custodian do the cleaning, not the overworked sales associates. Stop understaffing. Let the manager have more than one assistant. There is way too much work for the amount of employees you allow. Stop expecting the sales associates to sell your promotional items without paying them a commission. Offer better pay, you might keep more long-term employees that way. Give employees reasonable breaks. No one should be expected to go without eating for a whole shift.
