Horrible.

Replenishment Associate (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

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

Pros25% discount if you're into arts and crafts.

ConsCompetitive minimum wages. Personally under constant scrutiny from all three managers. I do the work of 3 people there, work constant over nights from midnight to past noon, and yet I'm still treated as if I'm the slowest person on the planet. Money is the bottom line. Too many employees getting 5 hours a week. No training unless you're on replenishment. Impossible time limits for unloading trucks.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit thinking you are better than everyone else. You are not important. You all are just people who've spent too many years of their lives working for Michael's and somehow got promoted above sales floor.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
