    I have been working at Hobby Lobby part-time

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good for part time.

    Cons

    Don't expect to go from part time to full time even if you have an open availability. I've been working there going on two years and still get treated as if I'm new.

    Advice to Management

    If you want your employees to respect you and pay attention you, learn how to talk to them, remember without them that store wont be what it is. Show people more respect.

    Pros

    The people I got to work with were always nice and enjoyable to work with. It made work fun for everyone as well. Nice pay and flexible hours.

    Cons

    Sometimes you would have to work long, all day shift from open to close (12 hours).

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    The pay was decent and they were pretty flexible with hours due to me being in school at the time. The staff were really friendly and management was super awesome. Kind and understanding and didn't ever really give me a hard time for anything.

    Cons

    Sometimes it could get fairly slow in the store due to summer hours. Those days were pretty long but then quickly picked up for holidays.

    Pros

    Great people to work with
    Great management
    Works with your schedule very well
    Higher pay than other retail
    Job variance - you get trained in many areas

    Cons

    Memorize sales sheets
    High work load
    Higher stress than other retail jobs
    Memorize departments
    Bad ergonomics at the register

    Advice to Management

    I really don't have any advice for management aside from fixing the ergonomics of the register area. There is a lot of twisting involved, which is not good for anyone's back. There were several back injuries in the store that I worked, and that's one of the main concerns in one of the training videos.

    Pros

    Decent hourly pay for retail. Some locations have a feeling of family for co workers.

    Cons

    As economy has suffered the management from store level and up have pushed employees harder and harder to accomplish more in less time.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate level needs to realize pushing harder creates low morale and lessens loyalty.

    Pros

    Sundays off, flexible shifts, friendly people, good money, relaxed atmosphere, relatively easy job, opportunity for advancement, and other good stuff.

    Cons

    The are very strict about behavior, dress code and other company policies. They're also a Christian company so there's no swearing or smoking or stuff like that.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have any complaints. I enjoy working here and the pay is good. I like your company policies and the work environment, so you really shouldn't considerbchanging anything.
