Productive and Supportive workplace
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee), Westerville, OHMay 13, 2014
Pros: respectful work environment
Cons: short breaks for lunch
In a normal workday I would run the cash registers and perform any and all duties requested of me by my supervisors, including cleaning the store, restocking shelves and assisting customers. I gained experience in working with a team of associates who were driven to excellence by our mutual respect for the company and the specific store. I enjoyed working – more... with my co-workers as they were supportive and helpful especially in my first few weeks when I was still learning the ropes. The hardest part of the job was dealing with displeased customers, but I am very good at maintaining a professional and pleasant demeanor and these experiences allowed me to further improve that skill. The most enjoyable part of the job was working in the team of associates and knowing that I could ask their advice in any situation and that they were each very competent in their area of focus. – less

Cashier (Former Employee), Rocky Mount, NCMay 13, 2014
A typical day at work is usually a happy day . Working at Hobby Lobby you will find yourself assisting customers with things they love. This store is based on needs and not wants, you will find yourself providing customer assistance to people who enjoy shopping at this store. Generally these customers have a happier lighter tone then those at a store – more... where they need what they are purchasing. There is no hard part about this job. Hobby lobby is closed every night at 8pm and every sunday so employee's can still participate in churches and have plenty of family time. – less

Fun place to work if in college
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Toledo, OHMay 6, 2014
I enjoy working here, however it is not the place I want to be as my career. It is flexible when it comes to my school schedule, but sometimes the hours are not sufficient enough to pay what I have to pay. It is difficult sometimes when it comes to management because of it not always being fair from employee to employee, but I am grateful for my experience.

Order Puller (Former Employee), Yukon, OKMay 5, 2014
Pros: fast food catered in from different places for lunch time.
Cons: scary being cut by another worker!!!!
Typical day was to get your products ready to ship out. How to find products using a number guild. Management was ok. Co-workers were ok also, but there were some that took over and told you how to do the job, I had one approach me with a box cutter because they wanted me to there duties also. The hardest part of the job was to quit, due to being threaten – more... and no one did anything about it. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing all the different products that they carried. – less

Productive and occasionally hard but relatively nice
SALES ASSOCIATE (Current Employee), Lewis Center, OHApril 25, 2014
Loved the people I worked with but I know some people went to other stores and had bad experiences. I learned quite a bit about customer service and retail. The management was nice and helpful with scheduling since I am in college. I'm only part time so I really don't have many benefits, which is a downfall.

Work/Life Balance is very poor
CO-MANAGER (Former Employee), OHIOApril 24, 2014
Pros: great pay
Cons: terrible work/home life balance
As a Co-Manager, you are on your feet 50+ hours a week but the days are so full that the time flies. The teams as this company are typically great with everyone willing to pitch in. Upper management, on the other hand, promotes home life but does not stand behind their actions. They pay well because they feel at the rate of pay given, they can expect – more... you to drop everything in order to be at their beckon and call. – less

CUSTOM FRAMER (Current Employee), Anderson, SCApril 24, 2014
Pros: excellent pay
Cons: some morning and some evening hours.
I enjoy working at Hobby Lobby. My usual day consists of taking custom frame orders, picture assembly, helping customers and assisting the manager in various store activities. I have learned how to "sell" items. This is the main focus of the custom frame aspect. My responsibility is to introduce the customer to designs that they haven't considered and – more... convince them that it is a good choice to purchase them. Their is a lot of strategy involved when helping customers and completing the goal of daily priorities. My co-workers are probable the most respectful and professional people in retail in comparison to other stores shop. The hardest part of the job is meeting the demands of the custom frame due dates. This take co-operation and planning to complete these objectives. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping and talking with customers. – less

Nice quiet work place, but can become very slow after Christmas and hours go down
Framer (Current Employee), Tomball, TXApril 23, 2014
Hobby Lobby overall is a great place to work but not if you depend on income being constant. During the holidays hours go way up! But after hours go down which means smaller checks.
