Great learning experience, reasonable pay and benefits for full time.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsClosed on Sundays.Store hours 9am to 8pm allow for family time.

ConsThe message that upper management / corporate office portrays is not necessarily consistent with the message that store managers are conveying. Hobby Lobby prides themselves on treating employees right and family first Christian values. At the store level it translates more as 'make a buck'. Talk to the customers if you have time, but get all your other work done. Time off for family? Well, maybe.. IF there's someone that can cover your shift. Otherwise, sorry - you'll have to miss that once in a lifetime thing with your kid.

Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of broadcasting corporate visits (the Greens are coming!) just show up sometime. See the store as a customer sees it - with out the stressful weeks to make the store look perfect for a 20 minute visit.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
