I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time

Pros

Great managers, fun customers, hard working & friendly co-workers.

Cons

You need to he willing to work physically hard. Rearranging isles, displays always. Unloading trucks weekly & meeting regular deadlines. Everyone is expected to work as a team & slackers do not last long.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management is great. Very sensitive to employeess needs. They have a difficult job trying to keep upper management happy, employees happy & customers happy.

    I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time

    Pros

    The only pro that I can think of is that working at Michaels gets me out of the house and busy while the kids are in school. Well, maybe the 25% discount is a "pro" too. But to spend what little money I make there seems rather silly.

    Cons

    One: They don't give anyone enough hours to live off of.
    Two: (and I think this is a big one) They SEARCH your bag for merchandise (purse, handbag ... whatever) before they let you leave the store. Their employees...they search them. How this is anything but BAD for morale is beyond me. It wasn't mentioned at the interview nor at the orientation. It's humiliating, and done in front of customers...just awful. I know it's all about loss prevention, but there has to be a better way...
