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

Pros

My manager was a major reason I enjoyed working at Michael's. he was interesting and funny and made work enjoyable.

Cons

It is basically minimum wage. As a member of the replenishment team, we do a lot of work. Some of it is very physical as we are required to build fixtures and continuously bend and walk around the store.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop taking our hours away just because sales goals were not reached! If people do not come into the store on a certain day, sales are obviously not going to be met. As employees, we cannot help this event and should not suffer because of it. We can only push sales to those actually in the store.
