If you were in charge, what would you do to make Hobby Lobby a better place to work?
Send managers and assistant managers to training for better people skills. Stress professionalism. Stop by and see how things are when the think no one is looking. Note: a page goes out calling a non existant staff to the registers every time District Mngr enters. DUH!
At my store in Tennessee, we cannot be kept past 11:59 due to an incident where employees were kept after 1am and had to be back as early as 6-7am the next morning, which did not settle well with upper management.( which seems ridiculous to be there almost 6 hours after closing with no breaks or lunches, especially for those that only got a 15 minute break to begin with) If you are under 18, it is against the law to be out on the road after 10pm, or at least in TN. So there is also that. Our managers will get in big time trouble if a minor clocks out at even 10:01!
Hope this helps!
Great Question! To learn more about Hobby Lobby check out our About Us page - http://www.hobbylobby.com/about-us/our-story,
62% of businesses have invested in preventing workplace harassment and bullying. This is not one of them. Not only does the culture promote bullying, you will not last if you refuse to join in. This company has so much potential with the growth it is experiencing but it refuses to adapt to the 21st century and relize that it is an employee market and not an employers market. The turnover in management says it all
Truck day is my favorite day of the week where Hobby lobby products arrive and we unload them from trucks. stock men/women prepare the items and un-box and organize them into carts and the department team members or general team members then push the carts full of items to each department and re supply that department with products. Its a lot of physical work but if you like to keep busy like me its great.
Last work experiences. Lots of scenario questions. About situation that happened with previous work history..
Honestly I quit because I was a very tired full time college student that worked 4 days per week over 30+ hrs & felt like I was almost just living at work more than being at my apartment especially during the holiday season! Most the time I wouldnt leave my evening shifts days until maybe 10pm depending on what all needed to be done that night! I left almost every day from work with a headache because of being stressed & feeling like my home life didnt matter! I might have been alittle home sick too since I was living almost 3 hrs away from my family. so that I could destress myself, I decided at the end of the school year to quit my job, go home for the summer & do my summer classes online (and I'm so glad I did!) I got along great with all my coworkers & the managers! But the 2 times I called in once cuz i was sick & once due to road conditions during the winter, the manager that I would talk to would always seem ticked off about me not coming in to work. It just seemed like they would rather have u sick at work & getting everyone else sick than staying home get better or keeping your self safe from ice roads! Also anytime I asked for a weekend off, i would get the impression that it wasn't allowed but I always got the days I asked for off. I asked my coworkers if they felt the same way when they would ask for time off and they agreed with me on what I said about not feeling like u r allowed to.
