    Pros

    Good pay and small bonus potential

    Cons

    Hourly employees hours consistently lowered due to soft sales creating longer hours for salary Management.

    Advice to Management

    Be family minded, as a salary management I understand working up to 12 hours over schedule but 15 to 35 more hours is not family minded.

    Pros

    high pay for a retail job. The company is generous with vacation and personal time. Management is very understanding with schedule limitation if they are reasonable. Friendly work environment most of the time.

    Cons

    Regulations are constantly changing and communication regarding changes are inept. Not very customer oriented at times.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere to work in, people that come to shop are in a good mood because there is nothing you truly need there, just knick knacks for the home or projcets

    Cons

    I worked my entire career at hobby lobby under "temporary hire", they would constantly hold this over my head too. "It would look good for them to hire you if you worked 45 hours this week" while I had been working there for over 6 months at that point

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring "Seasonal Employees" out of season, and don't hold the seasonal part over your employees heads. also leave your chirstian agenda out of your workers day to day, IE prayers before shifts etc.

    Pros

    great co workers, great product, customers are always fun to work with... lots of great things going on at hobby lobby

    Cons

    not enough pay for the hard work that you do, the mgmt team takes advantage of you and they are not very nice to their workers for being true christians how they say they are.

    Advice to Management

    you really need to treat your employees a little more respectfully if you dont want them to quit, they certainly deserve better pay for the true hard work they do.
