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

    Pros

    If you are willing to take the abuse as a Co-Manager, you will eventually be a store manager. But you will probably have to move your family to get a store. Then, the District Manager puts the pressure on you saying that "it will be bad for you to move you whole family and things not work out". The hourly employees are typically better performers because they are better compensated. I loved my crew.

    Cons

    You will work on some Sundays. The store is not open, but you will work. New store sets and some inventory preps are scheduled to work on Sunday. Very difficult to schedule a vacation. As a matter of fact, very few S.M.'s in my district lasted long enough to get that 3rd week. Take a look at how many Store Mgrs, have over 10 years as salaried manager with the company. Enough said. I would have rated work/life balance a zero if that had been available.

    Advice to Management

    Randy, stop sending out that silly management schedule if you are not going to insure that you RVP's and DM's are going to let your store managers follow it. Check for yourself how many hours your store managers are putting in. This is just another retail store that is closed on Sunday when it comes to salaried managers work/home life balance. Those hours you get off on Sunday, you will more than make up through the week. Mr. Green you need to visit with some previous store managers. There was no exit interview. Do you really care?

    Pros

    Good environment and benefits, but poor choices in leadership

    Advice to Management

    Promote people based on skills and knowledge of the equipment as well as being able to train others as well, instead of just holding a team lead position without knowledge of how jobs should properly be performed.
