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

Pros

- Wide range of projects
- Great co-workers
- Top of the line technology
- Learning new techniques

Cons

Expectations not clearly defined, high turn-over, unstable department, and lack of communication. Micro-managed with each project but the result is still not satisfactory, blame goes down instead of up. No proper training for the required work. Unchristianlike management style and policies. Instead of building you up to where you need to be as an employee they are quick to cut you down and toss you aside.

Advice to Management

Provide proper training to all management and design team, work together to make it a success instead of scrapping it and starting over. You should be a team instead of a group. The company places emphasis on their "Christian values", but the department management style is contradictory to Christian teachings which emphasize family caring and personal dignity. They take action first and aren't concerned with the consequences.

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

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers; opportunity for advancement if you are ambitious; lazy, dead-weight people aren't tolerated for long. Nice discount program for employees.

    Cons

    A little behind the times technology-wise. Need to update inventory management procedures. Sometimes they get a little preachy at work.

    Advice to Management

    I understand its a Christian company, but they need to keep the business business-like and save the preaching for Sunday.
