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

Pros

Days where there are great customers and coworkers. Eventually seeing certain customers and making small talk is always nice.

Cons

I work as a cashier. It sucks working when theres rushes because there's only one cashier, and sometimes they expect you to get through it by yourself.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Notify all employees when there is something new going on with the company/corporate.

    Pros

    Allows you to show your creative side, help guest decide on purchases, work with customers.

    Cons

    Very poor management who lacks support and offers very little opportunity for growth. Management shows little interest in employee's abilities and refuses to offer full time positions to sales employee's so they can avoid giving benefits!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with your employees to ensure that they are happy - happy employees causes happier customers!

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

    Pros

    Good job for a people person. Flexible hours. I like most of my fellow employees, currently even including most of the management.

    Cons

    Run on a skeleton crew so you can't give good customer service. Some shifts as short as 3 hours. Very poor pay and stingy raises. They have steadily and drastically cut hours in the 2 years I have been here; we are working our asses off all the time! Not that I mind working hard, but we are not adequately compensated. They did away with the Front End Supervisor, so cashiers perform many of the same functions with no additional pay. Constant pressure to collect emails of customers. Also some of their merchandise is crap and you kind of feel bad ripping people off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share a little of the wealth and pay your employees a living wage! BTW I am actively looking for another job.
