I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

You can take any class that is offered for free! Employee discount is fairly good.

Cons

Hours are barley given as it is, but the manager still finds time to hire more people! Tilts are not counted after ever shift, their counted at the end of the day, so if someone was short before you, you are short as well! A cashier job is not just a cashier, your expected to answer phones, show a customer where something is, oh and at the same time deal with angry people yelling at you because your the only cashier for 5 hours! And depending on the day/time, you may have someone help you at checkout.

Advice to Management

Stop hiring people when, there are not enough hours given out to your staff already. Managers need to stop being lazy and count tilts after each cashier is done, instead of playing the guessing game at the end of the day to see who made the tilt short.

    I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time

    Pros

    flexible scheduale some room for growth within company,always hiring if you apply to work here apply for the replenishment job they get the most hrs. good job if you have an other job or in school.

    Cons

    basicly little training whut so ever 90% of the job I hade to learn on my own only 4 hrs a shift some weeks only get 1 day, employees always quiting, start you of slow but if your a good worker you can get up to 20 hrs a week. if your not than you will be lucky to get two days week. minumum wage pay increse after 6 months. 50-60 employees 95% of them get less than 10 hrs a week.

    Advice to Management

    give your employees more hours (replenishment) take the time to train new hires longer shifts is a must!!! reward your loyal employees
