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

Pros

Helpful staff made integration easy. Fast paced and never boring. Employee appreciation discounts and perks.

Cons

Little to no training, disorganized at times, often short-staffed.

Advice to Management

More training/help should be provided to employees. More staff working at a time needed and too many responsibilities for cashier working alone (answering all phone calls, cleaning, returns, serving long line of customers at the same time.)

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

    Pros

    The hours are good, the job isn't difficult for someone who knows what they're doing, no customers to deal with in the early morning

    Cons

    Perhaps it's just this store, I don't know because I don't have experience with any other stores in this chain, but they will hire anyone and everyone regardless of experience, especially it seems during the Christmas rush, then make us deal with the idiots. People who are not productive or anti-productive are not dealt with, they're allowed to come and go as they please, do what they please while the rest pick up their slack. There is too much favoritism going on, certain people are put up on huge pedestals who certainly don't deserve it. It pays to be a butt-kisser in this company. Hours are not handed out according to seniority but according to how much you're liked.
