Managers: Life will be Hobby Lobby
Co-Manager (Former Employee), Albany, GADecember 10, 2014
Pros: closed sunday, rotating saturdays, closed at 8 pm.
Cons: work life balance, outdated systems
Minimum work week is 55 hours and that rarely happens. Will average 60-70 and 4th quarter will be more. Required to close 2 nights a week which means working 7am to 9pm. Other 3 days 7am - 5pm. Pressure to complete tasks before leaving will mean you won't leave when scheduled. District Management constantly pushing to be ahead. I understand that's their – more... job and yours is to get it done, but don't let the Christian facade fool you. Store closed Sundays, but that doesn't mean you won't be working. Technology is very old school. Product replenishment/order still done by hand. Freight arrives in Repack boxes not even sorted by Department. Still lots of merchandise that has to be manually priced with a pricing gun. No scanners at checkout. Hourly team does well for retail. Starting at $15/hr for FT and $10.50 for PT. Raises every year regardless of ability or tenure. No overtime so FT won't be worked to death, unless your on salary. – less

It's a decent place to work
Custom Framing Sales Associate (Current Employee), Stow, OHDecember 7, 2014
Pros: pay rate, closed sundays, work hours, clean workplace
Cons: micromanagement, strict and inconsistent policies, can be a stressful workplace
The job itself can be stressful or tedious but also rewarding, especially in the frame shop. Decent work hours, shifts can be enjoyable or painful depending on coworkers and management and the general mood of the store. Very good pay for part-time and even better for full time.

Stocker/Order Processor/Cashier (Former Employee), El Paso, TXDecember 7, 2014
Pros: ability to be off on sundays.
My personal experience at Hobby Lobby was nothing but enjoyable. I loved the interaction with the guests and the ability to still have family time. I found that this employer as any other gave incentives to those employees that did their work and focused.

Seasonal Associate (Former Employee), Flowood, MSDecember 5, 2014
I loved my time at Hobby Lobby. The work was very demanding and there was no time for slacking. Made you feel like you accomplished something every day as you left. The management was friendly and made for a very efficient and open work environment. Chose to leave because I couldn't work my graduate studies within my work schedule.

Good job gone bad
Cashier (Former Employee), Wichita, KSDecember 4, 2014
Pros: christian store, admired products, nice co-workers
Cons: mean boss, unorganized at times, very confusing
I was excited when I got hired here! They started me out at $9.00/ hour and I had decent hours. I had training videos I had to watch, a test I had to take, and a old manual cash register to learn. Until i worked here, Ididn't realize how tough it could be to ring up glue, or sissors. We had to ring the prie up follwed by the department it came out of. – more... Different departments have alot of the same products, just a different label. I never thought I would get lost in hobby Lobby either, but putting the returned items ba tends to confuse a person easily when they don't really know the layout of a place like that well. I had confrintation with my boss. He was tough to work for and didn't like working around anything for his workers. He tended to give me the feeling like I wasn't wanted there anymore, so I quit. – less

Hard work = success... and cake day!!
Order Picker, Backup Team Leader, Move Crew (Current Employee), Oklahoma City, OKNovember 19, 2014
Pros: no copay clinic visits, timed breaks, set schedule, christmas bonuses
Cons: occurrences, wear and tear on clothihg and shoes
Working in the warehouse can be a strenuous job. Most days it's like getting paid to work out. The warehouse is fast paced but it's easy to learn the different tasks that are expected of you. I enjoy working with so many different people with so many personality differences. I actually enjoy going to work and want to be present in order to get the overtime! – more... I would have to say that the hardest part of the job is to build Personal Paid Time Off as it accrues only 4.5 hours each month. PPTO is used for everything to family emergencies, sick days, car problems, and doctor visits. There are so many opportunities for advancement as well as positions if you work hard and are flexible. There are several perks of being an employee. One of the sweetest perks: "cake day" once a month to celebrate birthdays. – less

Cashier/sales (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKNovember 11, 2014
Pros: pay rate
Cons: there is none
I love this job! But take note if you are lazy don't apply. It is very fast paced and the manager expects a lot out of you, after all you need to earn your pay. This is the HL on 71st, Gary is the manager, he is great to work for. He will not tolerate drama, which makes the a special place to work. NO DRAMA...15.00 an hour for full time and 11.00 an – more... hour for part time. – less

Co-Manager (Current Employee), Kirkwood, MONovember 9, 2014
the hardest part about the job is the hours they want their managers and co-managers to put in each is at least 55- 60 hours a week and it gets increased to 70- 75 a week during the holiday season. The enjoyable part of the job is the different types of people I work with and meet throughout the day.
