I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Creative environment. I go to work in this place for the work that I do & for the customer's.

Cons

Does not stick to the principles of the company. Does not give fare chance to all hardworking associates. Management say's something & does something else.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

People with special skills need to be payed a little more than regular associates. Sincerity of an associate needs too be rewarded by proper pay or bonuses. There is a difference between associates who do specialized work & regular floor associates.

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

    Pros

    discounts
    wear jeans at work

    Cons

    Bad hours (like expect 10 or 5 or if you're lucky 15), outstandingly sloppy management. Last minute schedule changes, and don't inspect to be informed of it either. Unfair and childish points system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Under no circumstance, no matter how stressful your job is, should you be unprofessional and treat or talk to your employees like they are dumb and incompetent children. Using rude tones and words is inexcusable and highly unprofessional. You would not treat a customer this way, so you better not treat your HARDWORKING employees this way either. Childish.

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

    Pros

    Fair salary, overall people are nice. Good opportunity for people right out of school versus experienced.

    Cons

    Working at corporate was a hostile experience. Lack of tools needed to get the job done. Many people in management have been with company for a long time and get moved into jobs they are not experienced at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and seek opinions and feedback from those under management. The open door policy did not feel open and people are afraid to speak up in this company.
