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

Pros

They have a great discount and you get a lot of ideas for crafts and projects. The break room was nice and the rules were agreeable.

Cons

The amount of glitter and other crafting supplies on my clothes and shoes did not make me happy. As well as the Christmas time cinnamon smell that didn't leave my nose the entire season I worked there. Also go backs and closing at the end of the night would take an extremely long time, because of the vast amount of small items that were in the wrong place.

Advice to Management

The management at my store needed some improvement. They seemed to be a little to easy on their favorites.

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

    Pros

    Love the discount and the team in the store. Worked great together BEFORE store of the future

    Cons

    Store of the Future sucks. No hours to much work, all work put onto Replenishment Team. Manager sits in office all day does nothing to help on sales floor. Replenishment Manager is to busy doing customer service to help out team. District Managers seem to nalways be on power trip. Do not say or do anything agaist them or you will be forced to leave, so sad loosing great people who care.

    Advice to Management

    Take a close look at your District Managers they should be held to the same standard as your store managers. They do what they want when they want and even if it is wrong there is no where to go. They are not god, even though many of them think they by being rude and disrepectful to the staff. The staff in the stores are the people who do all the work and make the DM look good and bonus. Maybe they need to remember where they came from. Have some compassion and repect for the people making the money for you....

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

    Pros

    discounts
    wear jeans at work

    Cons

    Bad hours (like expect 10 or 5 or if you're lucky 15), outstandingly sloppy management. Last minute schedule changes, and don't inspect to be informed of it either. Unfair and childish points system.

    Advice to Management

    Under no circumstance, no matter how stressful your job is, should you be unprofessional and treat or talk to your employees like they are dumb and incompetent children. Using rude tones and words is inexcusable and highly unprofessional. You would not treat a customer this way, so you better not treat your HARDWORKING employees this way either. Childish.
