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

    Pros

    Very fast paced, physical job. Great fellowship with employees. Comradery is awesome. Sense of accomplishment at the end of the day. Cure for insomnia.

    Cons

    Training, no family life. There is no balance between work and home life. Your life is hobby lobby. Open to close shifts multiple times weekly. Pay does not equal extreme pressure and deadlines. Expectations unrealistic. Company driven by greed and built off the broken backs of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more employees.

    Fun job, enjoy the products and creativity

    Cons

    Bad management, rude and condescending

    Advice to Management

    Address managers and privacy, some things need to be said behind closed doors instead of in front of other associates, also the degrading and rude way they address issues

    Pros

    I Love my co-workers and the job itself but...

    Cons

    My husband's truck just caught on fire, while he was driving it to attempt to pick up my kids and I! Take it back...he's on his way to attemp to pick up me and my 3 kids...in a 2 passenger truck! We have been stuck in a town because my car broke down an hour and so away from the HL I work at! His truck is very old and doesn't run good in the first place...but because I told him I really need to be at work, he was going to attempt to make this drive. So I call my job to tell my manager that my husband was on his way to try to pick us up and his truck caught on fire. He proceeded to fuss at me about being at work, never once asked was my husband ok! Not one time. My husband's life will always be more important. Plus he was taking a chance to come get me so I could make it to work!

    Advice to Management

    ...I wouldn't even know how to advise a person with no heart!!
