    Pros

    Everyone gets a long great and loves working with people.

    Cons

    We are not allowed to be friends with the Store Manager outside of work.

    Advice to Management

    If a Store Manager does not know anyone in the town they should be allowed to be friends and go places with fellow employees.

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

    Pros

    Very easy laid back work, replenishment team is in my opinion the most enjoyable work there (out of the lower end jobs [replenishment, cashier, and sales floor]), They tend to work with your availability.

    Cons

    Managers will ignore or put off some of their duties if it means they will have to leave the office, and they love to chat forever then turn around and complain when things aren't getting done. (I once timed how long the managers were in the office talking while i was organizing an area close enough to hear what they were saying...a riveting 48 minute talk about how the men in their life were unsatisfactory only interrupted buy a cashier who had asked 3 times for more change.)

    Advice to Management

    Managers actually need to do their jobs at least 90% of the time, acknowledge the work your employees do, and make the employee of the month program actually worth something and pick someone who has actually been working hard don't just choose someone because you have to.
