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

    Pros

    Stay busy during seasonal time

    Cons

    After seasonal time they cut hours tremendously. I was only working 2 days a week for awhile and not making enough to pay my bills

    Advice to Management

    Be considerate of people that want to get a second job and be flexible with scheduling. The only flexibility is for students and it's not fair for those who are simply not making enough with this being their only job.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Braintree, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hobby Lobby (Braintree, MA).

    Interview

    Drawn out process for what is really a higher paid stocker job with the added management duties added in. Phone recruiter interview, minimum of 7 references you need to input into reference site called Checkster. After that week long process or longer you get a in person interview with a recruiter from Oklahoma their corporate office. After an 1.5 hour interview where in essence you are asked the same questions you were asked on the phone it goes to a background check. Again folks this is a retail management job that sells craft and imported cheap but overpriced furniture not a national security job for all the hoops you are required to go through. Reminder that the 52k to 55k salary offered includes your bonus so be careful before you say yes to 55/60 hour work weeks that dramatically bring down that rate of pay/salary even further. Please be aware that religion is brought up when they discuss new store openings and the "minister" being present to "bless" the new store/associates. Not a big deal but again not really appropriate in a interview even with a company that doesn't shy away from it's religious beliefs/core values.
