Must be a multi-tasker

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsCreative environment, relaxed atmosphere, great benefits for FT associates

ConsTight payroll, very few FT positions, must be self motivated to train

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't just say associates are valued, follow up with the one thing all associates want, proper training, recognition for a job well done and enough hours on a regular basis to prevent having to juggle multiple jobs.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Unorganized store, unorganized management

    Seasonal Sales Associate (Current Employee)

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


    Pros: You'll stay busy. There's never a dull moment working as a cashier. The headsets make it… Cons: I was hired as seasonal help and given zero training, save for some basics on how to run the register. That was it. Return policy?… Advice to Senior Management: Respect your employees- ALL of your employees. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    Great part time associates, but not a long term career option for most.

    CEM (Former Employee)
    Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at Michaels Stores full-time for more than a year


    Pros: The associates are very nice and laid back for the most part. There is a bonus employee discount a few times per year. Good job… Cons: There is potential for this to be a great company, but they don't invest in their employees. Getting a 15 to 20 cent raise is… Advice to Senior Management: Train your managers to be good leaders. There is more to the job than just building a display. You need to pay your employees more,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
