Careers at Hobby Works®

Make some extra money working with the products you love!

Hobbyists - who are also veterans of the retail sales floor - operate Hobby Works®. At Hobby Works we never forget that it is our people who are our greatest asset. Hobby Works is not a "revolving-door" of employees that are used up, spit out and then replaced with the next person to walk in the door. We strive to return to the days when retail management was a profession - not just a job.

If you enjoy working with people, but hate being treated like some kind of retail slave, then Hobby Works® is the place for you.  We offer Paid Vacation (F/T). and Health Insurance is available. Not to mention: flexible and reasonable hours (no more 60-70 hour weeks!) and the chance to work in a place where customers are HAPPY to shop. Discover why Hobby Works® has virtually no turnover at the Manager level! 

Current and former military are also encouraged to apply.  At Hobby Works® we don’t merely talk about supporting our military - just ask the many veterans we have hired since 1980. We offer a workplace that values the skills learned through military service, while providing the flexibility needed by those who serve in the National Guard, reserves or who are military spouses.

To be considered for one of our open positions, complete our employment application and bring it, in person to the Hobby Works store where you wish to work.  For warehouse or office positions return it to: Hobby Works HQ, PO Box 1337, Laurel, MD  20725, fax to 301.725.6040 or email to: help@hobbyworks.com
