A bumpy road but a great first job experience.

Cashier/Sales (Current Employee)
Manchester, CT

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

ProsEasy to learn the job and handle tasks so long as you stay under the radar and out of the way of the upper management.

ConsSevere micromanaging, favoritism, lack of help from upper management.

Advice to Senior ManagementJust because you know how to run a business, doesn't mean you know how to run a store.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
