    Pros

    GREAT pay. GREAT MANAGEMENT TEAM, Wonderful products, GREAT work and shopping environment. I literally am unable to be stressed when I am there. The store puts me in some mellow mood that it's Impossible to get me mad. It's an easy job and it's zero stress, unless you create your own drama.

    Cons

    Company really doesn't seem to trust it's employees. Even management. That's kind of rude. But oh well.

    Advice to Management

    God bless you.

    Hobby Lobby was a great place to work for the first 2 years or so. Management changed and so did a lot of other things. It turned into a place that was not pleasant to work.

    Cons

    Great place to work if the management team is good. it started out great, but ended bad. I worked there for 3 1/2 yrs.

    Advice to Management

    Change cash handling policies for cashiers.

    Pros

    I loveee Working there. I'm a Christian, so it feels like I'm just in the right place to work for as a job. I do not have to hide my religious views because my company is builded on the pillars of Christianity. It's truly a blessing, and working there I really feel like a part of a team with my other co workers. I have the coolest Managers, so down to earth, and they really work with your schedule. Greatest thing is that it closes at 8 and it's closed Sundays, so I dont have to miss Church!

    Cons

    There are no cons. absolutely none

    Pros

    You get paid at a rate that you can survive in today's economy. Great co workers, I was part time so Im not sure of the benefits.

    Cons

    There are a lot of late nights especially on truck day or when there are a lot of resets. This usually ends after christmas and starts back up right after spring. Pretty much throughout the year.
