Great Job, but with little hours and pay

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

Pros

The people are super nice, I don't work nights or weekends, and you can pretty much slack off at work without getting in trouble, so long as it looks like you're doing something. I always am working hard, but many of the employees there do like nothing. It's a pretty chill atmosphere and my bosses are great and flexible.

Cons

I only get about 8 hours a week, and I am working minimum wage. Also, there is a lot of favoritism between employees and the staff

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire less people! That way the people working there could get more hours.

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

    Pros

    Co-workers, employee discount, store content

    Cons

    No set schedule. No communication. Horrible upper managment. Hard to access employee records and paryroll.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all your district managers, their inexperienced and treat associates like crap. GIVE EMPLOYEES SET SCHEDULES! people cant live not knowing if one week theyll work 15hrs then the next week 2hrs. A Schedule a month at a time would be great I never know if im working till two days before the shift! Dont base payroll hours on store intake its bad business. If you can afford to hire someone let them work! Upper management has no idea what a store goes through.
