Hands down my favorite job

Operations Manager (Current Employee)

ProsMichaels promotes individual expression. They're ok with visible tattoos and piercings as well as unnatural colors in your hair. I really liked that I could be myself and I was still a manager. I even gauged my ears out while working there. I also worked with a very close group of people. Going to work was a blast, all my friends were there. They offer a nice employee discount which is awesome if you're an artist. I also had a great benefits package including a 401(k).

ConsThe pay is not competitive at all. They pay most part time employees minimum wage and as a manager I didn't even make $10 an hour. There is a ton of paperwork to keep up with and things can get disorganized very quickly. It's also hard to get in touch with the HR department if you need to report something.

Advice to Senior ManagementFirst off, if a store manager is doing a great job with their store: Leave them alone!!! Don't transfer them all over the place. Secondly, if you do have to replace a store manager: Take some time interviewing potential candidates and actually put some thought into it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I wish they were better but there's not much you… Advice to Senior Management: Perhaps have more cashiers working during the day when you know… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
