Good job for people starting in retail.
department head (Current Employee) – Sedalia, MO – July 29, 2016
I have years of retail experience. Been with Hobby Lobby for about 6 months now. It's physically challenging but mentally boring. I'm used to being a supervisor with reports, numbers, SKUs, sales, cross merchandising, associates and many other things to answer to. At Hobby Lobby they want it down their way and only their way.. I worked the big Orange box for years. They want you to set a display using GM info, sales info, OH info and report back to them with positive or negative results. Miss that place to this day. Hard to learn true retail with no SKU numbers. Those things do wonders. This company is an oversized mom n pop shop typing everything in like at your favorite candy store... But like i said, great place to start off at. But you'll be lost if you transition from here to a SKU using, big box company.
Good pay. Sunday off.
No challenge. no say or ideas listened to.
