    I worked at Hancock Fabrics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great customers and staff, clean stores. Lots of variety of fabric as well as other crafting goods. Benefits and employee discount as well as bonus sales program.

    Cons

    Not always enough staffing for busy days. Unorganized inventory system as well as too much product ordered by distribution centers.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately this is no longer needed since the company is now out of business. But I will say that management from Regional down to individual stores was wonderful.

    I worked at Hancock Fabrics part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Supportive management, friendly customers, great employee discount. Management was great working around my college schedule

    Cons

    Not enough hours to have store staffed to 100%, 1-2 female employees from 4:00pm to close in bad neighborhood (some scary nights)

    Advice to Management

    None, company is no longer in operation and my old store closed (IMHO, you should have never gotten rid of the $2.00 incentive for designer deals sales.)

    Pros

    Meet some great customers and get close with your staff

    Cons

    Corporate was to busy blaming the people that were doing the hard work. Instead of looking at their level to see what was wrong

    Advice to Management

    At the next business you run quit blaming the little people for everything
