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.

    I worked at Michaels Stores

    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.

    I have been working at Michaels Stores

    Pros

    The people I worked with are great and the employee discount was good as well.

    Cons

    The management was not understanding of personal issues and was very bias towards many situations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with your employees, not in the background. And be understanding when it comes to your employees lives outside of work.
