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

    Pros

    Great company to work for, easy to advance, work can be fun.

    Cons

    The hours they expect out of the Co Managers is too much. I was drawn to Hobby Lobby because of their Christian values, which I admire and respect. Unfortunately, I was working 60+ hours a week, and did not have the time to spend with my family. This put a big strain on my family life, therefore I had to quit. I would still be working for them had I had a schedule of 45 hrs. This is the only downfall of the company that I experienced. Although we got every Sunday off, I was too tired to do anything.

    Advice to Management

    Please take a hard look at the hours the co managers have to work. Sixty hours a week puts a huge strain on our family lives, and as a Christian Company, I'm sure that you can appreciate the value of family time. Hobby Lobby is otherwise a wonderful company to work for.

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

    Pros

    Management is helpful and care about personal time. They try to respect each employee and make clear their expectations.

    Cons

    Nothing is electronically cataloged. Everything has to be counted and sorted by hand. It also gets extremely busy and being a department head/cashier makes your job harder
