No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Festive and artsy surroundings, flexible hours, employee discounts

Cons

Managers played favorites; they would give promotions without really giving every employee and opportunity to apply for that promotion. Difficult to get hours unless it was Christmas or Black Friday. If you think it's the place to further your art career or craft career, it's not unless you become one of the manager's favorites. The pay was nothing to really brag about, but I didn't expect much working retail anyway.

Advice to Management

Do not EVER play favorites.

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

    Pros

    Very nice co-workers and management. Everyone from the store manager down to us bottom of the food chain cashiers care about our store and work as a team. Having a good store manager and assistant manager that know how to lead effectively without being harsh, condescending or "bossy" makes working at this store a pleasure.

    Cons

    Constantly changing schedules from one week to another, inconsistent hours given.

    Advice to Management

    More training for incoming employees instead of the sink or swim method, especially seasonal hires as the volume of customers/transactions during the holidays can be overwhelming to new workers.


  2. "Nice and fun place to work."
