I worked at Michaels Stores as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

I love this store and I loved working here the ambiance was right up my alley considering it was a craft store that could easily double as a step-ahead-of-last-resort if one is really trying to avoid having to go to blick's. The work is fast paced but there is room for advancement and benefits, etc.

Cons

It really depends on which one you go to because stock is different depending on where you go and so is management it could be great at one store or just terrible like you won't believe it and well I say read reviews before you go in one and call ahead of time for stock checks because you'll learn a lot more than if you just show up at the store also try using the 'online catalogue' and I put it that way because you cannot place online orders as one would presume.

Advice to Management

New management that has less issues it's okay to have bad days but everyday is a bit much.

    I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time (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 Management

    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


  2. Good experience for a first job.
