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....

    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!

    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.
