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

Pros

Busy busy busy, good starting pay, great employee discount

Cons

Management is RUDE!!!!! They are disrespectful not only to their employees but to their customers. They talk to us like we are half way retarded, they refuse to flex to meet any needs of customers, they threaten write ups for not collecting enough emails. we CANNOT force customers to give us their email addresses so some days are hit and miss.

Advice to Management

Have some respect, take the time to train your employees, be flexible, just because a customer is rude doesnt mean you need to be rude

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

    Pros

    My manager was a major reason I enjoyed working at Michael's. he was interesting and funny and made work enjoyable.

    Cons

    It is basically minimum wage. As a member of the replenishment team, we do a lot of work. Some of it is very physical as we are required to build fixtures and continuously bend and walk around the store.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking our hours away just because sales goals were not reached! If people do not come into the store on a certain day, sales are obviously not going to be met. As employees, we cannot help this event and should not suffer because of it. We can only push sales to those actually in the store.
