I worked at Michaels Stores

Pros

Management was good, coworkers good. People who shop at Michaels are generally laid back, and fun to talk to about their craft projects.

Cons

You have to do a lot of standing. Occasionally customers are unpleasant to work with. Often there are lots of small parts or pieces to restock/sort or scan.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I had a very positive experience with Michaels management. Working at Michaels was my first job, and I was treated fairly, and given proper training.

    Pros

    Okay job for students, flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    District manager has no people skills. Calls people out in public. Micro managed. Overall the company treats employees with little respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach District Managers how to treat people and how to act professionally. Conduct a survey that is actually confidential instead of one that the associates answering the questions about supervisors can be easily identified.

    Pros

    you may work with a few people you wind up liking, if you like crafting then the daily demos are fun

    Cons

    hours fluctuate from alot to barely any, appropriate wage/raises for work done, completely different customer base compared to other retail stores (psychotic), if you're looking for a job and have no knowledge of the product, management doesn't train for that and the majority of the customers have no idea what they're doing either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you need to stay consistent on business growth ideas and have be more realistic
