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

Pros

Customers were fun to interact with, Flexible hours, easy work.

Cons

Retail pay ~ 9.45 in WA

Advice to Management

Overall a decent experience but not a great one, there was fairly quick turnover with some of the employees, and new management had to get rid of some of the older (not so great) employees. Some coworkers were horrible interacting with customers, but that is most likely a result of the retail environment.

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

    Pros

    Great people, good work environment

    Cons

    Training as-you-go, short breaks, no regular schedule for seasonal associates (i.e. morning shift one day, closing shift the next), no shelf or merchandise dusting leads to allergic reactions in both employees and customers

    Advice to Management

    Hire more sales associates on the floor to keep merchandise dusted and clean, clean the air filters more often

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

    Pros

    Allows you to show your creative side, help guest decide on purchases, work with customers.

    Cons

    Very poor management who lacks support and offers very little opportunity for growth. Management shows little interest in employee's abilities and refuses to offer full time positions to sales employee's so they can avoid giving benefits!

    Advice to Management

    Work with your employees to ensure that they are happy - happy employees causes happier customers!
