Stay busy and be on time for your shift at Michaels

Cashier (Former Employee)
Huntington, WV

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

ProsA little regimented, but you get used to it. Lots of opportunities to connect with customers and make the job pleasant for yourself as well. If you have an ownership outlook, you can probably advance if you are willing to move. Be professional in order to get along with management.

ConsHigh turnover of part-time employees. Over-staffing makes it hard to get many hours. Expect to sweep floors, clean glass, and retrieve shopping carts as well as stand for hours at a time.

Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate your front-line employees with at least an encouraging word. Respect should go both ways.

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