Perfect as a temporary job, mind numbing long term.

Part Time Replenishment Associate (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

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

ProsIf you have great managers and a great team the work will be easy.

ConsYour store will more than likely be understaffed and you will work multiple positions. The amount of work that you do will make the wage you're paid feel like a pat on the head.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease payroll so stores are adequately staffed, Replenishment (the backbone of the store) should be paid accordingly, planogram reshuffling should make sense and not feel like a random decision.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Average retail experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Michaels Stores part-time for less than a year


Pros: I found the management to be quite kind and considerate most of the time, and many customers were fun… Cons: Pay is low, but probably average for entry-level retail. Specialized jobs like framing, floral, and instructors are not paid very well for… Advice to Senior Management: The emphasis on numbers results in low pay, high turnover, and understaffed stores. Many store processes… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
