I love my job. I have had my share of struggles but Hobb Lobby allowed me to keep my job after a horrible car accident that almost left me paralyzed. I was able to return to work after I recovered.

The latest I stayed was 10pm during the holiday season. there is not clear cut rule that you have to be out by a certain time UNLESS you are pre-approved for personal reasons (high schoolers on school nights for example).

typically stay the latest on truck days (wednesday) and Saturdays (busiest sales day)

Its the worst day of the week! I work in home accidents..I mean home accents lol and it m [truck day] is excuse my French but pure h e double hockey sticks! The managers are working you like you're a Workhorse and you're never moving fast enough no matter if it's a 100 degrees in the stor..or at least you glfeel like it is..and look like it is because you're running from the front to the back getting called here to there and also expected to get all of your Freight done before you HAVE to leave at 6..SO from 9:30 to 6 we have a whole semi to unload in the whole store (each department) has all of their truck unloaded, boxes sorted, processed..which means opening all that little items and getting them outta the bigger boxes and then the individual boxes w plastic and get the styrofoam out and all that and then on top of that getting all of it done and priced and put in its exact spot where the SKU is set..that you probably just set and that you've already set and reset n relayed a million times from here to there..and some that are so unnecessary at times... But don't get me started on that. Anyway you have to have it all done before 6 p.m. so from 8am at the earliest maybe.. but mostly 9:30 to 6 is most of our schedules we all come in at 9:30 and we are expected to have it all done by 6 p.m. or else ... Or at least the way that is at my store! And I know that in the employee handbook supposedly you have 24 hours to get your Freight done which would be smarter and a lot easier on all of your employees but it makes the managers look way better if everything's done by 6 and if the Regionals and districts are seeing that it's done and seeing how are working and letting it happen then I feel like more than likely that's the way it probably is at all most stores. It probably depends on the management and from my experience with managers at the store and I worked there for 2 years at two different managers but I've also read a lot of these blogs on how I Hobby Lobby employees feel and it seems like everyone agrees that the management only out for themselves and unless your buddy buddy with management they don't want to advance good employees they would rather keep them at part-time than to give them full-time or help them advance in the company because they want good workers and I don't want to pay him anymore and they have to even though I will say that the pay for part time is better than most stores here in my state... But sometimes the pace not worth the feeling of being used. For example most stores have two full-time employees and home accent I've been home accent since the day I started and slowly try to move up with people that leave back sent as a head of department and then the next thing you know you know I'm next in line and the new manager likes to For lack of Better ... Monopoly with payroll... Like he decided as soon as he got there that he only going to have one person as head of Home accent and pay one person full time and just let me be there Monday Tuesday Wednesday which are the truck days and seasonal days G18 or the pit as 17 kind of stuff. Pretty much some of the most important days of the week for getting stuff done and he keeps telling me it's a honor that he has me as part time but I'm there for the important days but really he's just using me because I'm doing the secondary home accent had a Department job 3 days a week and he's added way too much on to the head of Home accent just to save money for the store to make it look better so you can think what you want about that but I think it sucks and I would really like it if Hobby Lobby would look into what their managers are really doing and how they're treating their employees or if they care? Because they are supposed to be a very you know Christian and family-based Company and I feel that but then I don't see that or feel it in my store.

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

Store level management. They will point out all your mistakes but never your accomplishments. They will put you down and you might sometimes cry. There is no room for advancement. They don’t know how to properly schedule employees. Their lack of technology (I.e. no aisle numbers, price scanners, no proper scanners at the register).

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.

There are 16 math questions. You must answer half of them (8) correctly.they consist of addition, multiplication, subtraction and 4 percentage questions because the cashier employees figure out the sales tax in their head.

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.
