Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I can no longer think of any.

Cons

No sense of American pride and most of the products are imported from China. Difficult productivity standards in the Distribution network. Frequent mandatory overtime and little opportunity for advancement.

Advice to Management

Take care of the people that keep this business going.

    I worked at Michaels Stores part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Highest hourly pay I had in a retail environment

    Co-workers were very diverse, people of all ages from many backgrounds

    Customers were always friendly from what I saw.

    Very close to Costco and several restaurants you could get to on your lunch break easily.

    Cons

    Barely any hours, about 2 days a week on average.

    Almost no training whatsoever, just having another associate level worker with me to show me around on the first day.

    Never had a chance to do any cashiering, which I would have preferred. I was only helping customers find things or cleaning.

    Advice to Management

    Put a little more effort into training new associates to help things early on.

    Train your employees and please gives people more hours.I loved my time at Michaels but a mother of 4 can't live on 4 hours a week.Not everyone who work there is a teenager.Some people do work here to survive.
