No opinion of CEO

I worked at Michaels Stores part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Management was extremely friendly and willing to help whenever needed. Everyone always had an upbeat attitude, even when things were stressful for us. My co-workers were all amazing individuals who helped whenever they could and created a great team, as well as a wonderful work environment. Even during Christmas time, the customers were fantastic and I can count on one hand the number of unhappy customers I dealt with.

Cons

I can't think of any particular downside to working at Michaels. Overall, it was a very positive place to work. Other than the high volume of customers and resulting demand that was caused by the holidays, I really enjoyed working at Michaels.

    I worked at Michaels Stores full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is competitive in the industry.

    Cons

    Did not provide resources to get job done efficiently. Tight budget often prevented travel that was critical to development of product. Business outlook good if you can handle the pressure to perform without the resources.


  2. Great store but not enough staff

    I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun products, efficient walkie talkie system, breaks

    Cons

    The store had to cut hours due to not achieving daily sales goals, so everyone's hours got cut. Due to the skeleton crew during the hours that I did work, it was very hard to take care of the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Bag check should be prior to clocking out. Cumulatively, employees spend hours waiting to get their bag checked before leaving.
