Great family company
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee), Killeen, TXNovember 5, 2014
Pros: they pay very well
Cons: can't take time off during nov to dec.
Its a great place to work. Most the time we set merchandise from each holiday months ahead of time to be ready. Everyone is very friendly who works there. The hardest time is during the Xmas season because you cant take time off because its the busiest time of year. The managers seems to know what they are doing and very understanding.

Over all I enjoyed learning new things. Greeting customers with a smile and a "Hello.'
Certified framer (Former Employee), Bartlett, TNNovember 3, 2014
Pros: we had free lunch break.
Cons: health care benefits were offered.
The start of the day was to go through your department, to be sure that everything was in its place. Help customers with finding what they are looking for. Management was helpful if we had questions. I loved my co-workers, made it a great place to work. The hardest thing is to comfort a customer that is outraged and it has nothing to do with you. Meeting – more... new and old customers each day. Very pleasant. – less

Fun place to work if your crafty.
Cashier/Customer Service/Sales (Former Employee), Temple, TXNovember 2, 2014
Pros: crafty fun
Cons: only part time
I am a crafts person so this was a great job for me. The store I worked had great management. I loved working on the floor with the customers. You have your own section which you order for and keep straight. This was only part time job and I needed a full time job which I got and kept working here because I liked it so well.

A Great Place to Work
Certified Framer (Former Employee), Dothan, ALOctober 31, 2014
Pros: free lunches at holidays & special occasions. cold drinks during the summer on freight days.
Cons: short lunches. 30 mins at the store i worked at.
A typical day at work was always pretty fun and all my co-workers were great. Management was super easy to work with as well. The hardest part about the job was it's retail. Most customers are good but you would have a few that you just couldn't please no matter what. Anyone that works in retail or with the public will experience this at some point. – more... I found that even though this was the hardest it was was also the most enjoyable when you knew you satisfied the customer and they became repeat customers. – less

Store Clerk (Former Employee), Glen Allen, VAOctober 30, 2014
Pros: na
Cons: na
Did not like it there, it was a christian store and the management and the co workers were very rude. Did not have any good experiences with this store at all. They cut my hours to one day a week for no reason. It was difficult emotionally, to work in the atmosphere, with some of the workers there.

Could have had better management. Otherwise the job was good
Framer (Former Employee), Hutchinson, KSOctober 28, 2014
Pros: 25% off employee discount and setting up seasonal items was fun.
Cons: could not move up in pay, full time only thiry something hours a week.
The management was not the best I felt that they were very negative and ran a lot of people off. The job itself was fun.But with lack of training it was over whelming not knowing what I was doing. I did enjoy the learning that came along with this job. After I figured out how to do everything correctly I felt accomplished finishing a job and having – more... a happy customer! – less

Overall, a good company
Operations Manager/ Co-Manager (Current Employee), Franklin, TNOctober 26, 2014
Management shift is 7-5 3 days a week, 7-9pm 2 days a week.
The hardest part of the job is knowing the daily expectations as they are not defined well.
Having every Sunday off is very important for my family.

fun relaxed work place
Framer (Former Employee), Adrian Hobby LobbyOctober 22, 2014
Pros: relaxed environment, worked with very nice people
Cons: cut hours.
As soon as I got to work I would clock in and walk back to the frame shop. Looking at what needed to be framed for the day i would start in cutting mats, cutting glass, and putting together the finished project. After I would call the customer and let them know there work was done. Also while working customers would come up to me with there art, photos, – more... ect. and I would help them lay out there ideas for how they wanted it framed, then record exactly what they wanted.
At the end of the night we took care of the trashes, swept and dusted our area of the store, and then we would go threw the entire store straightening anything that might be out of place. – less
