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

Pros

Almost all the workers are quite nice and friendly. Lots of choices for products and it offers a good discount for the employees. Specially when you get appreciation week. Also has Michaels Cares for people in need.

Cons

Little training. I was hired as seasonal and with the crowds that we originally got it was frightening and quite disconcerting.

Advice to Management

Have a stable schedule. It is hard to plan a weekend when you don't know when you are going to work.

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

    Pros

    Store discount, relatively flexible hours, interesting customers, when it is busy the day goes by very quickly. Almost everyone that applies gets hired.

    Cons

    Lack of personal connection with management and their scheduling style, rude customers, rude manager, zero training involved- very much a sink or swim on your first day. Almost everyone that applies gets hired...

    Advice to Management

    A little more training (even just an hour of training) would be ideal. And setting an example for employees as to what customer service looks like would be preferred.
