I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time for less than a year

Pros

Busy busy busy, good starting pay, great employee discount

Cons

Management is RUDE!!!!! They are disrespectful not only to their employees but to their customers. They talk to us like we are half way retarded, they refuse to flex to meet any needs of customers, they threaten write ups for not collecting enough emails. we CANNOT force customers to give us their email addresses so some days are hit and miss.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have some respect, take the time to train your employees, be flexible, just because a customer is rude doesnt mean you need to be rude

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time

    Pros

    it is still growing in business, meaning IT has lots of things to do. Dont have to worry about being laid off at this moment.

    Cons

    IT management is a big mess. There is no asset management, no IT service management. Most of the employees are contractors, no ownership. Employees turn over rate is high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
