I worked at Michaels Stores part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Great people, good work environment

Cons

Training as-you-go, short breaks, no regular schedule for seasonal associates (i.e. morning shift one day, closing shift the next), no shelf or merchandise dusting leads to allergic reactions in both employees and customers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more sales associates on the floor to keep merchandise dusted and clean, clean the air filters more often

    I worked at Michaels Stores part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I wasn't micromanaged and I loved my coworkers. My manager gave me extra hours when she realized that I was such a good employee, and it is nice to be appreciated.

    Cons

    Never got my discount card, not much communication between management and part time cashiers like me, and I had no responsibility to make my own judgments. Got thrown under the bus for a situation that occurred during a closing shift with a new manager and first time closing lead. Too much emphasis on getting email addresses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just fire someone for the sake of firing them because something bad happened.

    I worked at Michaels Stores part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun Coworkers, was fun until "Store of the future" came on scene.
    Extremely easy to have the most seniority in a store due to ridiculous turnaround.

    Cons

    Underpayed for the amount of work expected, Horrible scheduling (Running a store with 3 people total)/Lack of hours, Accusing nontrusting atmosphere, Managers stealing personal belongings, list goes on...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't rob your employees! When a store goes through 50 employees in under a year figure out that it isn't good!
