great great great company to work for - the pay is not that good but our folks are smart and hard working - i wish hobby lobby had a chance to pay a living wage to our folks, sometimes it feels that most of our employees would need some kind of government support to survive - so, good folks bad pay no layoffs

It's now 2018. Their workforce has been reduced from 18,000 to 15,000. They are FINALLY paying full time employees (management) $14 an hour and part time employees $9.50 an hour. Trump tariffs and the trade war with China will be affecting Hobby Lobby in a disastrous way since 90% of their products come from China.
Granted I'm posting quite a while after this post, but full time positions are paid double minimum wage. There are tons of opportunities for advancement since the company is constantly growing. All it takes is drive and ambition. I've been in retail for a couple decades and this is, by far, the best company I've worked for.
