Michael's needs to give out more hours, and have more than one cashier during a shift

Cashier (Current Employee)
Philadelphia, PA

I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time for less than a year

ProsYou can take any class that is offered for free! Employee discount is fairly good.

ConsHours are barley given as it is, but the manager still finds time to hire more people! Tilts are not counted after ever shift, their counted at the end of the day, so if someone was short before you, you are short as well! A cashier job is not just a cashier, your expected to answer phones, show a customer where something is, oh and at the same time deal with angry people yelling at you because your the only cashier for 5 hours! And depending on the day/time, you may have someone help you at checkout.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiring people when, there are not enough hours given out to your staff already. Managers need to stop being lazy and count tilts after each cashier is done, instead of playing the guessing game at the end of the day to see who made the tilt short.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
