Current Employee - Frame Shop Manager in Bozeman, MT

I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Working closly with customers in framing dept is nice, some great employees trying to improve on discordant management/corporate guidiance

Cons

Arbitrary goals with no real world backing, having same expectations from all stores regardless of the extreme differences in socio-economic dynamics of areas. Not the highest of quality materials.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think of something other than performance bonus, realize that your employees are what make or break a store. Actually listen to feedback and address issues.

    I have been working at Michaels Stores (more than an year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are friends and try to make the best out of bad corporate policies and structures. .

    Cons

    Poor hours, no personal life/work life balance. Store hierarchy and Management schedules create unnecessary stress on management (they work 3 full shifts on the weekend for 3 weeks in a row) , always understaffed, store layout makes no sense to employees or customers, archaic systems and models, severely below national/regional/local pay scales, high employee turnover, VP of regional believes corporate has it figured out and will not listen and defends corporate, while corporate ideals are making the employee and customer experience worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a step back corporate and address your issues. More muscle and rules are not fixing your problem. You are headed in the wrong direction for employees and customers.
