Nice working there with people from diverse cultures and personalities although we didn't understand each other. I worked there for a short amount of time and great pay for first time laborers, I had really nice and understanding supervisors and co-workers.
Good pay and break times

Its a good job for high school students but not for moms. The management was awful. I didn't enjoy going to work. They told me I would get full time but they never gave it to me. They put me in the frame shop and the lead would not teach me the right way.
Floral Dept./Cashier (Current Employee) – Huntington Beach, CA – January 18, 2016
Can be very busy but it makes time go by fast. It is just a really great environment to work in. Everyone is very nice and managers are great. Hardest part about the job is learning how to ring since everything is done by hand basically. The most enjoyable part is that it is an overall fun place to work.
Fun & easy
Need a full time job, no sku numbers, everything is done by hand.

Cashier (Former Employee) – Wichita, KS – January 11, 2016
Worked long shifts, got regular breaks, learned how to create ice cream blizzards and smoothies. Worked the cash registers and trained new crew members. I enjoyed working with customers, and all my co-workers were friendly. The hardest part of the job was keeping up during rushes.
Co-Manager (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – January 11, 2016
This is a great company to grow with. Job security is fantastic if you are a hard worker and so is the possibility for advancement. Fantastic benefits and overall good work environment. However, in certain departments, work load and overtime can quickly become intrusive to home life. In short, great job for someone just out of high school or with no family commitments.
massive required overtime and short/ no notice of overtime.

Hobby Lobby gives employees a great opportunity pay rate wise. But when it comes to a schedule and being full time, there is no consistency. You can leave on time or two hours later depending on the project. Management tends to have a disregard for personal lives. Seeing how their productivity/payroll is effected by their bonus, Management hardly ever makes the schedule more then a week out. Making it really difficult for you to make plans. If something doesn't go to plan, ie; the weekly truck being late, inclement weather. management changes the schedule despite whatever all has to be done to try and save payroll. When this has happened in the past, the amount of time to be worked has been shortened,but the amount of projects either stays the same or increases.Working at Hobby Lobby has taught me better multi tasking and figuring out different resources to finding how price points/ departments.Some of the hardest parts about working for Hobby Lobby at West Columbia is on multiple times, I've worked up to 13 hours on truck day before and the lack of consistency daily schedule wise. This is the only company i've ever heard of that you cant pick and choose when you use your PTO time that you've earned and you keep earning it on a weekly bases.. But company wise, they make you take your vacation a week at a time and you're not allowed to break it up. A lot of problems i have with Hobby Lobby are management based. The store manager at West Columbia is so rude. She acts like a bully and is constantly putting people down and lowering their self esteem.
Employee discount, closing early on holidays or being off all together, closing by 8 on a regular basis.
Only a 30 minute lunch break unless you work up to 12 hours in one day.

A typical day at Hobby Lobby was me walking in to the store, clocking in at designated time. Then checking the schedule and seeing what register I am on and proceeding to it to count it down. If I am on a primary register I open up and check out customers or refund them on items being returned. If not on a primary register I would report to a manager for assignment and designated work area for the day. The hardest part of the job for myself was not being able to be in my department most of my shift. The most enjoyable part of my job was my co workers. Helping them keep morale up and assist them with questions they had for customers. My coworkers were a balanced bunch. Most of them loved working for hobby lobby while the others complained about lack of staff and hours.The management were a good crew, limited but skilled in their fields.
