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

Pros

Closed on Sundays.Store hours 9am to 8pm allow for family time.

Cons

The message that upper management / corporate office portrays is not necessarily consistent with the message that store managers are conveying. Hobby Lobby prides themselves on treating employees right and family first Christian values. At the store level it translates more as 'make a buck'. Talk to the customers if you have time, but get all your other work done. Time off for family? Well, maybe.. IF there's someone that can cover your shift. Otherwise, sorry - you'll have to miss that once in a lifetime thing with your kid.

Advice to Management

Instead of broadcasting corporate visits (the Greens are coming!) just show up sometime. See the store as a customer sees it - with out the stressful weeks to make the store look perfect for a 20 minute visit.

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

    Pros

    Good work schedule. Store closes relatively early and does not open on Sundays. Good culture among coworkers. Overall a nice place to work.

    Cons

    Archaic shipping and ordering system. No UPC checkout system means that each cashier/employee has to be a near expert on every department and many products in the store.

    Advice to Management

    None.
