Current Employee - Framing Manager

I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

ok benefits, great coworkers, decent schedule for a retail job, for the most part a fun work enviroment, ok dress code

Cons

as a corporation, they try to promote this image of caring about the employees, but its really whatever will save them a cent. crappy raises, basically you just make enough to keep up with the rate of inflation. i have never experienced so much miromanagement in my life

    Current Employee - Customer Experience Manager

    I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time

    Pros

    flexible scheduling, access to materials to test out before you buy them, not horrible music on the PA

    Cons

    uncooperative management teams, unmotivated sales and cashier staff, no payroll for training new employees, a new corporate program every three weeks, needy and arrogant customers, no support from corporate when enforcing policies - always have to roll over and let the customers walk all over you, associate discount does not include sale items - which almost everything is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop trying to constantly implement new programs and tweak the ones you already have. also, evaluate your distribution of payroll hours.

    I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are usually laid back, customers are mostly friendly and are excited about the products, and the work hours are very flexible. For entry-level, it is a good place to work.

    Cons

    Don't always get enough work hours, don't always have enough people working to finish all tasks, and turn over rate is high so you are always training new people. Also, specifically at my store, the replenishment hours are ridiculously early. Sometimes can be repetitive work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honesty is always the best policy.
