I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great company with a 25% employee discount. Its pretty laid back and if you work the floor, part of your job is talking with customers about their projects and helping them find what they need (I think its fun).

Cons

The discrepancies between stores is outrageous, and how they communicate with other stores and within their own management can be really, REALLY bad.

Advice to Management

Advice to COMPANY: Have either an undercover employee who can monitor your management, or have your District Manager visits last a day instead of an hour. Inter-management communication at some of your stores is so bad, I am seriously considering leaving all together after almost 6 years working with great to awful store managers.

    Fun environment, interesting customers.

    Schedule was posted only one week at a time, and usually with little notice, subject to change frequently. Little to no training.

    Pros

    Teamwork helps immensely while assisting customers. Staff have a good attitude, and the customers always come first so they are also usually in a good mood.

    Cons

    You must be able to be on your feet for long periods of time, kneeling and reaching a lot. There is some physical demand.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. It seems to be working.
