    I worked at Hobby Lobby full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, great environment, awesome coworkers, quality products. Ability to have fun and interact with the community. Definitely recommend

    Cons

    Public is overall uneducated yet opinionated about the company and feel free to share their feelings with staff. Holiday hours can become long

    Advice to Management

    None. Keep doing what your doing. The management at my particular store (#11) was great. Perfect? no, but neither was I.

    I worked at Hobby Lobby full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the co-workers were wonderful to work alongside, good wages and benefits.

    Cons

    "Hostile Takeover" of store by new management. Vacation and PPTO time are nice to have in theory, but difficult to get approved. No annual reviews for personal/professional growth, all paid exactly the same, as if we are the same. Employees are considered interchangeable and replaceable. No room for advancement, obviously.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect, get to know them. Understand that their personal lives and struggles mean they are human, and working with them and showing compassion makes them more grateful, loyal and hard-working employees instead of angry, bitter and resentful. Stop playing "GOD" with their lives. The bottom line is obviously important, but your employees are your most valuable asset.

    I have been working at Hobby Lobby full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Financially stable and growing company. Good pay and benefits. Casual dress code. Nicely stocked break rooms with free flowing coffee and iced tea.

    Cons

    As with any company there are some managers who lack good management skills, which negatively affect morale of workers and drive good workers away.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to ideas and complaints. Honestly look into comments by workers to determine what is valid and what needs to be done.

    Pros

    Decent atmosphere Great coworkers "In it together" attitude

    Cons

    Consistently understaffed (New) manager highly abrasive, treats associates poorly Very difficult to move from part time to full time (I have been trying for over a year--now looking for other work) Terribly behind tech-wise (essentially no bar codes--have to type prices in manually)

    Advice to Management

    Update the company into the 1970s and get a barcode system in place
