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

Pros

Company does not have true planograms so if your a merchant you will love it. Variety of customers and associates since many associates love working there for their love of hobbies. Not a lot of guidelines for number of hours to be used in each dept so you have more control over schedule.

Cons

Retail basics - never enough help to keep up. Lots of physical work even for store manager. Trucks are all hand unload by store manager and co manager. Long days on manager close usually 7 am to 9 pm.

Advice to Management

Upper management have never managed a store under current hourly constrants 10 yrs ago they had twice the help but company is more in line with most retail now. Bring some current successfull ideas to management teams that need your help.

    I have been working at Hobby Lobby full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    We sell awesome stuff and have many great employees to work with.

    Cons

    I work about 6 minutes and then get called to approve countless refunds all day long. Would be an outstanding job if I was allowed to get some work done.

    Advice to Management

    Poll the refund count at stores and allow stores to have more refund approvers if warranted.
