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

I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time (less than an year)

Pros

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

Cons

Hours 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 ManagementAdvice

Stop 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.

    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.
