    I worked at Hobby Lobby part-time

    Pros

    They have good consistent hours, and great pay. I received a raise every year that I worked there. You can also get a Christmas bonus.

    Cons

    I noticed that as a part-time employee, I was closing way more than opening. Even though my availability said that I could work morning shifts, they still would not schedule me to open.

    Pros

    This company is great, the people who work their are all very inviting and it's like a family because we are in a family based environment. There is a reason why it is a popular store to work for and why they pay their employees well is because of the environment and they value our hard work.

    Cons

    There really aren't too many, but I mean it's retail so those cons are pretty much all the same.

    I ask for a chance to let me expand on what I'm good at. I will bring positive attitude, self confidence and pride into my work, leadership skills as well as great teamwork. I am ready to learn, listen, and lead as I find myself a great use for your company. I am an extrovert so I get along with almost everyone I have great communication and social skills and I leave customers feeling confortable and relaxed as they and enter and leave the establishment. I am flexible and adaptable to anything thrown my way. I have good work ethics and morals to support my willingness to work and strive for the company. I have strong determination and persistence. Also I am self managed, honest, hard working, enthusiastic, energetic, organized, self motivated and dependable. The reason I am interested in applying to work here is because I believe I bring great value to the company, I've come to appreciate how well you thrive in the community and I'd like to be apart of it. I am certain that my customer service and communication skills would make me a valuable member to your establishment. Please review my resume and references and consider my application, I will appreciate the opportunity if given to me, and I will show how much I am worth. Thank you for your consideration.
