    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Hobby Lobby part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy to get the schedule and hours you want (when you're in school or college).
    Super fun place to work, get to see new things/merchandise everyday and talk to creative people.
    Pay is better than at any other stores.
    Sundays are always off!!!!!

    Cons

    No cones from me, loved the place.

    Advice to Management

    Do autonomous survey for employees once in a while to get to know how managers manage the stores and treat employees. To get reviews from regular employees about supervisors and especially managers. Even though I loves my job and place, I had to leave the job voluntarily only because as a part time employee - manager forced me to perform all the tasks as well as hours that full time people did and I got real tired for part time pay and all the work. Sometimes I felt like I was doing more than full time employees. And I wish manager was discharged much earlier than after I left the place, because shortly after store received best manager you can ever dream of.
