Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Houston, TX
Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Houston, TX

I have been working at Hobby Lobby full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Large volume stores have good people and busy.

Cons

Unsure how corporate folks can number crunch and yet not show how stores can do all they push us to do in a limited amount of time and with limited payroll.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If there could be more specific transition tools for those who transfer to different stores so we won't feel so a shock to the differences. Though Hobby Lobby's policies are the same everywhere, it is not practice all the same.

    I worked at Hobby Lobby part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    10% Employee Discount. Closed on Sundays, so you know you all ways atleast have this day off.

    Cons

    Schedules are not posted until the Thursday prior to the coming week, making it difficult to plan anything personal. Your weekly and daily schedule is constantly changing, even your bathroom and lunch breaks. Is not unusual to be scheduled until 11 pm one day and then have to come in the next day at 7 am. Inventory tracking and ordering is all done manually, meaning large lists and binders of inventory numbers and descriptions that you are constantly having to refer to. They boast about higher than average pay, but that's only for full-time associates. Most workers are part-time and are paid min wage - $8.50/hr.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your associates. Treat them with respect and dignity. Solicit suggestions and best practices and share with the rest of your team to make everyone's jobs easier and more productive. If you have to reprimand an employee, do it privately. Refrain from gossiping and talking about employees behind their backs.

    I worked at Hobby Lobby full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You are off on Sundays, every other Saturday and you earn some coffee money

    Cons

    * Training or lack of training
    * Unprofessionalism
    * Bullying of Employees by Management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people how you would want them to treat a member of your family. Know what your staff is doing, you make the schedule/daily look at it. Using other employees as informants only create a hostile enviroment for staff. If you can't handle the position you are in without becoimg a wack job, cr get on some med or.choose a new job. Mr. Green instead of shoving your values down your employees throats, (by your pending lawsuit), spend some money on POS this way your stores will run more efficently.
