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

    Former Employee - Stock in Bridgewater, NJ (US)

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

    Pros

    The only good thing was my co workers..........we all went through the same thing

    Cons

    The manager is an ego maniac and a male chovanist. He will degrade you as much as he can and in front of anyone who is around. The stock manager allows his workers to be treated like dogs, and does not stick up for them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to train their managers to show respect for their employees

    I worked at Michaels Stores part-time for 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!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
