    I have been working at Hobby Lobby part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Management was always willing to work with my school schedule in high school and college, no matter how ridiculous it was
    -I was never asked to do something management wouldn't/hadn't done themselves
    -Most coworkers are friendly and easy-going

    Cons

    -Management (both local and district) loves to play favorites. If you're on the nice list, expect to advance quickly; If you're on the naughty list, good luck getting more than four hours a week.
    -Communication at all levels of the company is alright at best and terrible at worst.
    -Gossip is an issue among not just associates, but management as well.
    -Some poor hiring choices all around.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to listen to your associates, especially when they tell you about issues or concerns they have. Ignoring small problems only allows them to grow.
