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.

    Pros

    Only if you have no other possible job

    Cons

    They dont care about their employees. Every task that is assigned is timed and a manager or supervisor is checking up on your progress every ten or fifteen minutes. If you are too slow, in their opimion, they will replace you. Anytime you call out sick, or are more than five minutes late arriving to work or punch out more than five minutes after your scheduled departure time, you are given a point of half a point, it you dont call and dont show for a scheduled shift you get four points. When you reach six points, you are fired.

    Advice to Management

    Learn some people skills. Dont treat employees with disrespect.

    Pros

    Most coworkers are great to work with and customers, in general, are fun. Getting to know how many arts and crafts things there are in the world is amazing.

    Cons

    Points system. You get a point if you are sick. You get a point if you leave 30 seconds early. You get a point if you clock out more than 5 minutes past your shift. You get a point if management reschedules your work hours at the last minute, which happens frequently, and you cannot work that shift. After 6 points, you are terminated. These are in the employee handbook. Management has "nicknames" for every employee and most of them are too vulgar to repeat here. No one is properly trained, just thrown in the mix and told to "figure it out". There is no room for advancement unless someone leaves. A 3 cent raise after working for 1 year is ridiculous. Stock needs to be looked at. Truck deliveries bring in tons of merchandise that is duplicated throughout the store and in some cases will never be sold.

    Advice to Management

    Constantly berating employees by district manager does no one any good. Being told every time you do something wrong that you will be fired also keeps morale low. Train people. Put the right amount of people on a truck shift. 3000+ pieces with 6 people takes a while!
