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

Pros

Co-workers, employee discount, store content

Cons

No set schedule. No communication. Horrible upper managment. Hard to access employee records and paryroll.

Advice to Management

Fire all your district managers, their inexperienced and treat associates like crap. GIVE EMPLOYEES SET SCHEDULES! people cant live not knowing if one week theyll work 15hrs then the next week 2hrs. A Schedule a month at a time would be great I never know if im working till two days before the shift! Dont base payroll hours on store intake its bad business. If you can afford to hire someone let them work! Upper management has no idea what a store goes through.

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

    Pros

    I honestly can't think of any

    Cons

    Here is my story: I was hired by a manager that everyone hated. So when that manager left for a new job, I was completely ostracized by my coworkers, even other managers. I heard horrible things being said behind my back and was never given a chance to prove myself. It was like going back to middle school. The other day I heard two employees bashing one of their coworkers for being "white-trash".

    This is the most unprofessional work environment I have encountered. Thank god I'm graduating college and getting a real job.

    Advice to Management

    You need a more educated and mature workforce

    Pros

    Days where there are great customers and coworkers. Eventually seeing certain customers and making small talk is always nice.

    Cons

    I work as a cashier. It sucks working when theres rushes because there's only one cashier, and sometimes they expect you to get through it by yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Notify all employees when there is something new going on with the company/corporate.
