Overtime, very nice design center, employee perks (food, prizes etc). Late starting time to allow parents to get kids off to school. Food trucks on premises. Large working spaces.
Be prepared to be a production artist robot! Churn, churn, churn it out and if you make small errors, (which can be plenty due to the EXTREME workload and ridiculous turnaround times) you might as well start looking for another job. The BATCH process is extremely stressful!!! This place has HIGH TURNOVER and they are always hiring due to the firing and quitting of graphic designers. Always looking for more designers on Indeed, allll the time. This may not be true for others, but the training was inadequate. A month of on-the-job training is desperately needed for the extreme deadlines.
Revolving door at it's finest. Freshly graduating designers, (looking at you award winning UCO students) DON'T DO IT.
Majority of the items in Hobby Lobby is not American made (majority China). Products are then re-labeled and/or recreated to US standards and then sold in stores.
Advice to Management
Your worker bees are tired and stressed, I know this because I still have contact with my former coworkers/ college buddies. There absolutely needs to be a more reasonable system in place for the extreme workload and the amount of time to get it done. Batch processing is the focus/demand of the designers job function and it's horrible and you guys know it. Focus more on the training needs.

Retirement plan with match
Generous vacation time
Paid Sick Time
Pretty Easy Job
Customer Service is stressful
Not a regular schedule
Holiday season is a nightmare
They expect more out of their store employees than what can physically be achieved so you always feel like you're not accomplishing enough.
Pay raises are minimal
Advice to Management
Treat your employees better and your company would make a lot more money because they would actually have the time to help customers find everything they need. Sales would skyrocket.
The vacation and benefits are good. Only reason people stay but they're truly miserable.
This place treats you like slaves. Worse place I have ever worked at because they over work you. Do not work here. Too much negativy and the management is horrible they dont care about you. You're only a number here . They yell at you to work faster. It's already feels like 110 degrees in the warehouse. This is not a Christian company like they say they are. You have to work weekends to make up for being off for the Holidays while HR and personnel doesnt. Very unfair..etc
