    Pros

    -Management will depend on your store, I had fair managers with a good sense of humor.
    -Very flexible, willing to work around classes or time off without penalty.
    -Will cross-train employees in the areas they think they could manage
    -Great co-workers, very willing to help if you don't know something.

    Cons

    -Training mainly consists of on-the-job training and some videos, you aren't taught much about anything outside your department unless you go figure it out.
    -You get a wide variety of customers, be prepared for attitudes to run the gamut as well.
    -Frame shop workers' sales were kept track of when I left, if you don't up-sell custom frames, you won't stay there long.
    -Cashiers have to work with a manual system, knowing what sales are on that week and applying the discounts as necessary, this can be a problem for back-up cashiers.
    -It's retail, you will have customers yelling at you or giving you an attitude because they've been piled-up in line for too long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some time for actual training in all departments would help employees rapidly assist customers. Upgrade from the manual cashiering system, it's window dressing that is unnecessary.

    Pros

    Disappointed to say that the only "pro" that comes to mind is that HL is closed on Sundays.

    Cons

    Upper management consistently demonstrates attitudes and behavior that is not only unprofessional, but anything but Christ-like. Belittling and berating employees while customers shop is not only unprofessional, but totally against all of the teachings of Jesus Christ. While HL professes to be a Christian company, I have yet to see anyone display qualities that Christians should exemplify. I've seen a near temper tantrum from a district supervisor while in the store with customers shopping. Hard work is not enough for HL. They want 70 hour weeks and do not care if you have a family. If you want to have a life outside of work, HL is not for you. No appreciation for long hours and total dedication to your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mr. Green needs to be aware of the un-Christ like, hateful people that he has hired to manage his company. Worked in management for 20+ years and never dealt with such nonsense until working for Hobby Lobby.
