Department Manager (Current Employee)

Prosthey pay well... I have been there a long time and our team has become like a family

ConsPoor management! It has become more and more apparent they do not truly care on the human level. We had a fantastic store manager when the store opened, he was there for many years but as the corporate level of management became less humane he chose retirement. We have had several managers since, each worse than the last. We are no longer allowed opinions on any level and if you speak up you are punished by scheduling, we earn personal paid time that we have been told we can't use without a doctors note, sometimes not even then. It has become a dictatorship. When we made attempts to go to corporate about the issues we were ignored or embarrassed by being called out in front of others. They have the fact they are christian posted every where and that we are closed to allow time for worship and family on sundays yet we have received trucks on sunday and had to work and now are required to study the sale ad to pass a test monday morning before open. They also brag about their high wages( on the national news and posted on the front door) but they don't tell you that it is a set rate for all employees, the guy who goofs off all day gets paid the same as the guy busting their butt to get things done, not great incentive. I cannot afford to quit due to the High rate of pay but I am more miserable everyday.

Advice to Senior ManagementAll levels of management should be required human relations classes and pass personality tests before receiving their gold name tag. Remeber that without people you cannot run a business, that includes your employees

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Unpredictable stress, did not stick with company morals

    SALES CLERK (Former Employee)
    Laguna Niguel, CA

    I worked at Hobby Lobby part-time for less than a year


    Pros: Sundays off. that's really about it. Cons: No communication from management in regards to what your position entails. No hierarchy, many managers tell you different things on how to complete one task.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
