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

Pros

friendly co-workers, flexible schedule, those are the only good things about this place

Cons

The four managers here have no idea what they are doing. I just started a couple of weeks ago and I am already looking for another job. The managers each tell you different rules or different ways to do them so you get in trouble when doing it a different way you were. And god forbid you ask them to help you with something, they give you attitude even though you are still learning. They are not professional, constantly talking badly about workers in front of customers and other workers. Customers always complain about what a poorly run business this is. DO NOT WORK HERE!!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get your stuff together, be more tolerable of mistakes and be more understanding

    I worked at Michaels Stores full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    pay was ok. people were good in store level.

    Cons

    no holidays off, none.Don't pay for any of the 3 normal summer holidays, although corporate and dm's and higher get it off. Only salaried employee in building so guess who gets the unpaid extra hours?
    treated horribly by upper management,associates are the stupid people they need to talk slow to and micro manage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    look at your regional mangers and inexperienced dm's. you would be horrified.

    Pros

    Awesome benefits! 401 K for Full and Part time employees!

    Cons

    The pay is minimum wage and only increases once every 6 months and is based on YOUR performance!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay so turnaround is not as great and you can keep your loyal employees!
