I worked at Michaels Stores part-time for less than a 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 have been working at Michaels Stores part-time

    Pros

    Really friendly co-workers and management, pretty good hours (when you can get them), policies that make sense.

    Cons

    There aren't enough people scheduled to do all the work required of us, and there aren't enough hours to go around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire more people than you need, and schedule more people. A skeleton crew isn't good for the customers or for us.

    I worked at Michaels Stores part-time for less than a 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.
