"I was treated like a child"

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

Pros

You can wear jeans to work if you have one of their official t-shirts, the online system is convenient for requesting time off etc.

Cons

They would tell me I wasn't scheduled for a couple days, then they would later put me on the schedule without informing me, and scold me for not showing up. I wasn't properly trained, and whenever I would ask a supervisor a question they would act like I was an idiot and like I was wasting their time.

Advice to Management

Your employees are hard-working adults, don't treat them like they are disposable.

    I worked at Michaels Stores full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    pay was ok. people were good in store level.

    Cons

    no holidays off, none.Don't pay for any of the 3 normal summer holidays, although corporate and dm's and higher get it off. Only salaried employee in building so guess who gets the unpaid extra hours?
    treated horribly by upper management,associates are the stupid people they need to talk slow to and micro manage

    Advice to Management

    look at your regional mangers and inexperienced dm's. you would be horrified.
