Dishonest about job expectations and work requirements in the Art Department at Hobby Lobby Corp.

Former Employee - Graphic Designer in Oklahoma City, OK
Former Employee - Graphic Designer in Oklahoma City, OK

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

Pros

- Wide range of projects
- Great co-workers
- Top of the line technology
- Learning new techniques

Cons

Expectations not clearly defined, high turn-over, unstable department, and lack of communication. Micro-managed with each project but the result is still not satisfactory, blame goes down instead of up. No proper training for the required work. Unchristianlike management style and policies. Instead of building you up to where you need to be as an employee they are quick to cut you down and toss you aside.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide proper training to all management and design team, work together to make it a success instead of scrapping it and starting over. You should be a team instead of a group. The company places emphasis on their "Christian values", but the department management style is contradictory to Christian teachings which emphasize family caring and personal dignity. They take action first and aren't concerned with the consequences.

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

    Pros

    -Talented coworkers
    -Social work environment
    -Learn new techniques
    -Made some close friends

    **There is a 20 word minimum on for this section and I can only come up with 12.**

    Cons

    -Team leaders didn't bother to show up to my interview.
    -Told I was replaceable my very first day.
    -Team Leaders consistently lose projects/paperwork.
    -Team Leader makes a habit of talking to employees like they are small children. Very degrading.
    -Management is extremely suspicious.
    -Politically incorrect work environment.
    -Raises are a joke. And if you make "too much" you don't get one.
    -I worked there 6 months before my boss ever spoke to me. She also called me by the wrong name.
    -My boss also literally snapped her fingers at me because I wasn't moving fast enough.

    **This is just the tip of the iceberg**

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You run this department on fear. I can tell you with out a doubt that you are not liked or respected by your employees. You have no idea of the talent within your company because you are so afraid of losing control.
