Assist customers with purchases in needlework and fabric department, restock merchandise, order merchandise, kept department clean and organized, and assisted on cash registers when needed. Management was helpful, supportive, and always willing to help. Co-workers were always willing to assist and were fun to work with. The hardest part of the job was unloading freight. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with and assisting customers.

At Hobby Lobby, I help customers put together craft ideas. I help them by either showing or collecting the items for them and putting it together for them. You have to have a lot of patience because most of the time, they don't know anything but they have an idea.

It was a great first job to have. I learned so much from them and everyone around me. I did love that place and everyone I worked with. They couldn't be flexible with my hours which is the main reason why I could no longer work there, but besides that it was a great first job.

Hobby Lobby is a great place to work and to become more knowledgeable about various hobbies, crafts, supplies, and home decor. The enthusiastic service and knowledge of the employees keeps customers coming back for all their hobby, craft, and decor needs.

Its a great "starting out" job for any graduate or high schooler. The staff may be older but they are welcoming and give good insight. The only hard part about it is the repetition and occasional lack of work.
Pays well for required amount of work but offers no advancement.
Department Head (Current Employee) – Lawton, OK – June 16, 2017
Uneven workloads throughout the store. Work days can range from 4-12 hours without notice. Can work in multiple departments but receive no additional pay. Frame shop certification does not increase pay. All positions required to know register but cashiers are not required to know other departments.
Cashier (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – June 14, 2017
Working at Hobby Lobby as a cashier was a good gig for me, however, I did struggle at the cash register. In my brief period of employment, I would mix up which department certain items went under, and had trouble understanding which items were on sale every week. I was dependent on other fellow cashiers for that knowledge. Being a cashier at Hobby Lobby, I believe is one of the hardest jobs the store entails for its employees because it is not like scanning a product as a cashier would do at a Wal-Mart, but instead each product at Hobby Lobby is placed in specific departments and the prices are manually entered throughout the checkout process. Other duties I had as a part time cashier was to vacuum at the end of the day and sweep out our registers, wipe down the windows and turning on lamps at the beginning of the day, and assist in stocking returns back onto the shelves if the assistance was needed. As I said, this job was really a great job, however I was not cut out to be a cashier at this store.
The pay compensates for heavy labor
Everything is manually entered into the cash registers
