The more involved the Worst It gets..

Cashier -≫ PT Manager-≫ Sales Floor-≫ Framing (Former Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA

I worked at Michaels Stores part-time for more than 3 years

ProsDepends on the stores I really liked the people I worked with..
Yearly Raises like 15-35 cents depending on how well you did
Easy job..

ConsThey lie about promises. Was a temporary manager and told when the job would be open i would get it.. NOT true. I thought it was odd i had to interview against for the position i was told I would have. Even more odd when they told me, We decided to go with someone OLDER. This is also illegal to say.

My store manager was a weak leader. Let other lower managers push them around.
The store manager was the main reason why I left. Within 2 months everyone in my department left. I was the last.

Took hours from framing department gave to the morning crew who also had more workers and hours than everyone else. Who didn't get their jobs done every Friday.

Suppose to be crossed trained.. I was the only crossed trained employee. I had to do everyone's job because no one else stepped up. So my worked started to fail

Suppose to get 30% emails per day... Everyone already has them so we just keep typing the same email over and over. It was originally 30 emails a day per store.. NOW its like 500

Advice to Senior ManagementPLEASE double check who you are hiring for higher management. They will cause everyone in the store to quit.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
