No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Everyone is very nice and friendly, management uses positive reinforcement and rewards to get the best out of every employee and always is open to advice or suggestions. Hours are very flexible, and employee discounts are pretty nice.
Overall it feels less like going to work with random people and more like a family, I love just about everyone I work with. They're awesome.

Cons

Not enough hours to go around, and there's never enough sales/floor associates around later in the evening to help customers. Hourly wage could be better too, but it's retail.

Advice to Management

Always be sure that every manager is telling new hires the same information. I've known a few that are still confused after a couple months on some really simple things.
Also please let sales/floor associates know that when they're stocking or doing returns, not to flex product into empty spots randomly. It's becoming a problem for those of us who do truck shift to put restocked product away when there's overstock on the wrong shelf.

    Pros

    The store is awesome and I love being around the things they have in the store an helping people.

    Cons

    The only people who get consecutive hours every week are the managers, everyone else gets little to nothing, I've been at michaels for five months, I'm probably one of the best people I can sell anything but I'm working only 12 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Give the employees who actually do their job efficiently and quickly more hours, over the ones that they favor.
