I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Creative environment, relaxed atmosphere, great benefits for FT associates

Cons

Tight payroll, very few FT positions, must be self motivated to train

Advice to Management

Don't just say associates are valued, follow up with the one thing all associates want, proper training, recognition for a job well done and enough hours on a regular basis to prevent having to juggle multiple jobs.

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

    Pros

    Love the people I work with. This is the best job I've ever had. Co-workers are very friendly. I was a transfer into the store and everyone made me feel welcome.

    Cons

    Every so often you come across a guest that has issues with one thing or another but hey its our job to try to deal with the issue as best as we can or find someone else who can.

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

    Pros

    Co-workers are friends and try to make the best out of bad corporate policies and structures. .

    Cons

    Poor hours, no personal life/work life balance. Store hierarchy and Management schedules create unnecessary stress on management (they work 3 full shifts on the weekend for 3 weeks in a row) , always understaffed, store layout makes no sense to employees or customers, archaic systems and models, severely below national/regional/local pay scales, high employee turnover, VP of regional believes corporate has it figured out and will not listen and defends corporate, while corporate ideals are making the employee and customer experience worse.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back corporate and address your issues. More muscle and rules are not fixing your problem. You are headed in the wrong direction for employees and customers.
