I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time (less than an year)Pros
The discount is great, makes a huge difference. If you are into crafting, use it as much as possible.
The shifts are usually 5 1/2 hours, decent if you juggle two jobs. Good place to learn how complicated retail and bad managers is like.
As a cashier, always fun to talk to customers who are passionate about similar crafts.Cons
No/little training. I went my first week just thrown on the cash register with no training what so ever, and git written up for things I never learned. Managers are very snippy, act like you waste their time. Never acknowledge your achievements, only your failures.
The email collection is a joke. Asking for emails from everyone no matter how many times they come to the register is a hassle and irritates customers. Each week you are expected to have an insane percentage, what days you work or what times aren't taken into consideration. If it's 8pm everyone just wants to get home, not tell you letter by letter their long address.
Floral sales? Get real! I'm amazed anyone buys them at all. Being a cashier shouldn't involve selling something no on wants.
You have too many tasks: cleaning, check out speed, email collecting, floral selling, fixed time announcements, doing work the person before didn't do, phone calls...Asking for help while your assistant manager sits being paid to paint a pumpkin is irritating.
Check your Workbrain---if it works. Mine is for whatever reason not letting me in, do I'm terrified my schedule will be changed without my knowledge, happens a lot.Advice to ManagementAdvice
TRAIN YOUR EMPLOYEES, DONT PLAY FAVORITES. Forget the email sign ups, don't judge employees on just numbers. Take into fact the hours they work and how this may affect them. Praise efforts. Make corrections when customers are gone. Workbrain is glitchy.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookNo opinion of CEO
