What is it like to work at Hobby Lobby

What Do You Like About Working There?

The creative atmosphere, the ability to help customers fulfill their craft or decorative project in a way that fits or exceeds the expected outcome using our products in new and creative ways. Also most of the employees are like minded. Its hard work and demanding, but it is highly satisfying. I love when customers come back and ask specifically for me because they loved how I helped them previously. Its nice to know I helped them and they remembered me... Show More

What DON'T You Like About Working There?

Policies, procedures, and unrealistic and extremely stressful expectations in a fast paced workplace. You are expected to be everywhere and do everything at once and if you have stuff not finished youre held accountable regardless of the reason. Oh and dont try to think creatively in order to make things go more efficiently, someone in a corporate office makes a list step by step of how you should do something even if doing so ultimately is wasted time and energy and is silly in a store with payroll cuts and not enough bodies to do the average days work let alone extra projects. I was told time and time again dont think outside the box. If they didnt come up with the idea then its not done. You cant even show why its a better idea. Your name is not on the store. Period. And in short "management"... Show More

What Are Your Favorite Benefits/Perks?

Well it isnt the health care premiums or deductible thats for sure. No I would have to say they do have great life insurance, and medical leave policies and coverage. The pays pretty darn great too for retail without commission... Show More

What is up with the holiday confusion in your stores? In the fall, the Halloween and Christmas merchandise is displayed together. Right now, the Easter and Valentines Day items are intermingled. Can we have one holiday at a time? Or at least, separate them into different areas of the store?

Most stores have 3-4 aisles by the registers that change pretty quickly. Whatever holiday is next is in the first (or first two) and the next holiday is in the others. As we sell merchandise from the first holiday we have to fill in the empty space with something, so logically it would be whatever the next holiday is. The problem is, when you put two holidays in the same aisle it gets mixed up and the employees that close who are charged with recovery are lazy cashiers and do a horrible job. We can't order 99% of the seasonal merchandise so it's not like we can just order to fill the holes.

Ok I never heard about Hobby Lobby being that I am from NJ which does not have one of those stores. Reading your Wikipedia page it says that you guys don't have a barcode system because it is considered too expensive yet all stores have the same exact music playing as it is beamed down to the store via satellite. WTF? Care to shed some light on this? How is business? It seems like this company should have gone bankrupt a long time ago. If you guys wanted to implement a barcode system would it be allowed by corporate?

I think we share the satellite with someone else. We just pay them to use it for one purpose. As far as I know we don't actually own any satellites. The company actually had the second highest profit margin in the United States this past year (maybe the year before I don't remember). We were beat by Best Buy who as we all know has one of the if not the highest mark-up on it's products. Our stuff has an extremely high mark-up as well which explains why we were up there. We get a lot of people who are addicted to shopping which I guess could explain why we're not out of business. Since the economy has gone to *** our profits and *** have actually increased. No we wouldn't be allowed to implement a bar code system to one store. I actually had the idea of writing an application with our products and rices and stuff for company use. Or at the very least have a couple employee use only computers to look up prices instead of getting out the book and finding the description which takes forever.

Are you aware of what your parking lot is used for? Does the management just roll with it or do they not know either?

I don't know what specifically you're talking about. Our parking lot is used for teenagers to make out and have sex in their cars at night. Some people who sell Tootsie Roll Pops for their church that we tell to GTFO. And to park the cars our customers belong to. I'm interested in what your local parking lot is used for, care to elaborate?

I've read that Hobby Lobby is pretty grounded in Christianity. How does this play out at the store?

Every month we get in a pamphlet that has a biblical story or some story about someone saved by their faith or something along those lines. We carry a lot of 'Jesus material' in our store. There are a couple things in the employee handbook that are based from Christian principles. And supposedly there is a Hobby Lobby ministry for any employee that needs help.

What is it about Hobby Lobby that people would be most surprised to know?

Lets see, I haven't actually read the book put out by the owner but here goes: We're a Christian owned store, which is why we carry so much Jesus stuff. You'd actually be surprised how much of the stuff is Religion related. Even roosters have something to do with it, though I'm not sure what other than the "When the *** crows three times" story. We open at 9 AM and close at 8 PM because when David Green (the owner) was a teenager he hated having to get up super early for work and staying super late thus ruining his social life. We don't use scanners or an automated merchandise ordering system.My store puts the oder in by Tuesday at 5 or 6 PM and the Truck arrives promptly at 7am Thursday. This gives the warehouse in OK about a day to pick and load the truck. My store is on the east coast if that gives you an idea of how fast this is done. We are going to have to start dressing like Walmart and Best Buy employees starting March 1st. Blue shirt, blue vest, and tan khakis. If I think of anything else I'll update it. There's a ton more.

best story of a guest?

**The positive** There is a guy who comes in all the time and buys about $500-$1000+ of framed art. He's generally nice and doesn't bother any of the employees. He just gets his *** and gets out. I decided to ask him for help one day and he wanted a flat bed to carry the pictures on to make it easier. I gave him said flat bed and helped him to his SUV. After we loaded everything I got a $20 tip. Total amount of my time taken: 10 minutes. **The weird** This past week a guy came into my store and asked me if I ever plant anything. I thought maybe he wanted to build a mini greenhouse (lots of people come in for that) so I answered yes. He then went into a tale of how his Uncle invented some 'dust' that doesn't get wet, and could save the country. I think he meant dirt but anyway. He put some of this dust in a ditch on the side of a road and two months later two farmers gave him $200 each for saving their crops from being flooded. And that this dust could save the country. He said something about Obama and "the floods" and how this dust could have saved lives and homes but whatever Obama did didn't save lives and homes. I have no idea what floods he was talking about. He then went into the BP oil spill and how this dust doesn't get wet until it's about a mile under water. If we dropped this dust where the oil was leaking it would settle on the hole and clog it up stopping the oil leaks. Then he tried to get me to make this dust for him. I said no and walked away. **My favorite** This husband and wife from my church came in and argued with me over an easel saying it was on sale because there was a 50% off sign in front of it. They failed to read the words on the sign that said wall decor. They wanted to speak to a manager so I called my boss over and he of course gave them the discount. The whole time the lady is telling me she doesn't need some kid reading to her because she has her master's and is working on another and her husband has his master's. What their degrees were in escapes me. I got pissed by the time my boss came over so I decided to be sneaky and call them a moron. I simply said many many times, "I apologize for making you feel like a moron." The End.

1. How friendly? 2. What stuff?

1. Not sex friendly, or date friendly. I'm a guy and the managers were guys. I was just the favorite for all my hard work so I was privy to information that peons weren't supposed to know. 2. Not going to list it, just answer questions if they come up.
