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

    Pros

    Great company to work for, benefits and pay were amazing, loved learning a new job. Understanding Company, worked with me through my divorce and when I was diagnosed with RA.

    Cons

    Can be stressful at times, especially during peak season, Not much of a Con though, Hobby Lobby is a really Good company to work for, it was just too demanding after my diagnosis.

    Advice to Management

    I think Management does a great job in giving its employees what they need to succeed. Very helpful and understanding.
