I worked at Michaels Stores part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Given lots of credit if you do your job correctly, Very flexible with your schedule, great and fun co workers.

Cons

You won't always know whether youre on the managers good or bad side, they almost always make you work if you are on the stock team on Fridays and Saturday mornings. Crazy customers, and go backs get really crazy

Advice to Management

Be honest with your workers and keep workers business confidential.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility in schedule. Great co-workers. Nice products.

    Cons

    Although Michaels has always been understanding of my limited availability there have been many times over my three years there where I would get anywhere from 1-5 shifts a week. Being a family woman such unpredictability makes it difficult to know how much money you'll have to pay your bills. Michaels is known for its lack of training new hires and for giving new employees, especially seasonal ones, more hours than its long term employees. There are rarely enough people to work the sales floor during the day leaving too much mess for the closing team. Their bins out on the sidewalk are precariously put together and there is too much weight stacked on it causing injury to some closing team members either through the bins running over their feet, items falling on them, or back injury from pulling them in every night. You are not likely to be promoted from the inside but at least can expect a yearly raise if you really bust your butt. Do not expect recognition for your hard work as, sadly, management does not seem to care enough to give it.

    Advice to Management

    Train your new employees better. Spend some money on better storage for the sidewalk to avoid employee injury. Do something for your employees of the month or employees celebrating their anniversary there. Use some money on putting at least 2 more people on the sales floor during the day. Give more predictable hours. Make a 2 week schedule so people are not left waiting to figure out if they work or not a few days after they receive their schedule. And provide more opportunities for your employees to move up into management.
