Pay is better than some retail, but the hours are not.

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

Pros

Highest hourly pay I had in a retail environment

Co-workers were very diverse, people of all ages from many backgrounds

Customers were always friendly from what I saw.

Very close to Costco and several restaurants you could get to on your lunch break easily.

Cons

Barely any hours, about 2 days a week on average.

Almost no training whatsoever, just having another associate level worker with me to show me around on the first day.

Never had a chance to do any cashiering, which I would have preferred. I was only helping customers find things or cleaning.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put a little more effort into training new associates to help things early on.

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

    Pros

    Great Co-Workers
    Not really a hectic environment
    Pay is good when given enough hours

    Cons

    Not many hours at times
    Pay could be better
    Too much merchandise that can't be sold at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to cut down on excess merchandise that comes in, it's difficult to put out and sell them at times.
