Management needed to be properly trained. Trying to make every employee cry because you yell at them is not effective.

I enjoyed selling and stocking the product.

Pay is horrible. They are still hiring in at the same rate as they were in 2003.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Train better, more effective and pay a decent wage.

    I worked at Michaels Stores part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The occasional extra discounts were pretty nice, co-workers on the whole are generally friendly, and there's a good chance your fellow co-workers have some very specific knowledge in certain fields

    Cons

    The customers are just awful, the number of resets seemed incredibly frequent and inconvenient, and often you were understaffed due to people either not showing up or a limit on 'hours' budgeted due to corporate's projections on man hours you'd be needing any given week. Customers seemed to get incensed when there wasn't a "[insert area of store] specialist" around, even if the best you could do was read packaging and submit your best ideas. It's insane to think every Michaels store will have someone who specifically knows about, say, Jewelry Adhesives as they can be used in Ceramics or something equally inane. In short, it's retail. Not particularly wonderful an environment to be in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give advance warning when there's going to be some corporate visit, a lot of people aren't only working this job and suddenly having to stay 1.5 hours past closing time actually becomes a big deal without advanced warning.
