I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time

Pros

Really friendly co-workers and management, pretty good hours (when you can get them), policies that make sense.

Cons

There aren't enough people scheduled to do all the work required of us, and there aren't enough hours to go around.

Advice to Management

Don't hire more people than you need, and schedule more people. A skeleton crew isn't good for the customers or for us.

    I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time

    Pros

    flexible scheduling, access to materials to test out before you buy them, not horrible music on the PA

    Cons

    uncooperative management teams, unmotivated sales and cashier staff, no payroll for training new employees, a new corporate program every three weeks, needy and arrogant customers, no support from corporate when enforcing policies - always have to roll over and let the customers walk all over you, associate discount does not include sale items - which almost everything is.

    Advice to Management

    stop trying to constantly implement new programs and tweak the ones you already have. also, evaluate your distribution of payroll hours.
