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 worked at Michaels Stores part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Decent starting pay. SOME of the employees were very helpful, and they know you won't catch on immediately and are understanding. But they do tend to stick the new people doing the crappier work.

    Cons

    For replenishment crew, there is no reason at all. Store was very unorganized. Had to wake up at 1 am most of the time, and got off around 10 am. It changes your whole life schedule. Work is tedious, and annoying, and it's an overnight job so most of the people I worked with slugged around, didn't move fast, and were weird as all get out. Required to move around a lot, but carry a bulky annoying price gun on a shoulder sling. And a headset with long wire. And a apron. Had gear flying all over the place at all times. Just overall, a bad experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get all the managers a more cohesive arrangement. Set up a system, instead of having somebody work on this section for a minute, then go help somebody in this section, then go back to their section, then get done and have to stand around asking what to do on a freaking walkie talkie.
