Ha! This seems to be up to the individual store manager, district and regional managers discretion. In Georgia they can keep you as long as they want to legally. My problem with us being kept so late is that there is very little notice as to how late we will be kept. Our schedule may list 9pm, but we can often be there up until 11pm. It used to be this way from Oct/Nov- Jan inventory, but we have been experiencing this since early-mid July of this year! We have been sent so much more send outs with no place to put them, that time is spent building top caps to the sky to store the merchandise until it sells down on the floor. The main problem is lack of communication as to how late we will be kept. No announcement of 'hey, this, this and this are what we need to accomplish before we can leave.' It's just incredibly frustrating and creates tension and unnecessary stress to the closing employees!

Although there where a lot of things that I did not like about working at Hobby Lobby my coworkers where definitely not one of them. There was a strong team mentality. You don’t really have any supervisors to go to if you have a question, so everyone learned to help each other out.

YES! Unfortunately our truck day is on a Friday.... We ALL HATE FRIDAYS! How our store works: several employees, regardless of age and physical abilities show up for the 8am truck. Takes about 2-2 1/2 hours to unload. Our stockroom is super small so all boxes except for Home Accents goes out to the floor in their appropriate department. Then a few employees arrive at 9am to start opening, pricing if needed, and putting the merchandise out for sale. All of the full-time leads of each dept come in at 11am, every Friday, and work until 9, 9:30, 10, 10:30 or later depending upon how long it takes. Every Friday.... no full-time lead has a Friday evening to plan to do anything outside of their job! No one who is scheduled till close (9pm) ever gets to leave until all merchandise is unpacked and put on the floor where it is supposed to be. This is the way it is!

No, it helps but they give you training before sending you out to the floor

I got a new job and went to put in my two weeks notice. IMMEDIATELY I was treated differently, yelled at, and belittled. No exaggeration. I was yelled at for paging assistance to framing to help a customer bc no one was there. I was accused for putting a fabric bolt in the incorrect spot when i just clocked in. They treat you horribly and it’s unacceptable. So I walked out.

Its not hard but i haven't had to do math in a few years so i failed the test, only because i wasn't that good with percentages, so i didn't get the job. I would be such a great employee and very dependable. I hate that i didn't get it.

I called and emailed three months before I resigned. I continued for nearly six months after I resigned as I felt so strongly about how the company ignores the truth. I never received a call or an email in return. Also wrote a letter to the District Manager on my final day and still - nothing happens. Manager is still employed in his same position and ex co- workers who were all aware of the issues I was exposed to all tell me nothing has changed.

It's a very busy, stressful environment. Truck day is awful and there are never enough cashiers so you have to do that too.They just don't give out enough hours for the crazy workload they give you. Very hard physically on your body and by Christmas everybody is ready to quit because they are stressed to the max.

Overtime doesn't exist where I worked. Full timers are kept at 32 hours and get told off if they get near 40. Part timers strictly kept under 27 hours.
