    Pros

    Usually in own space

    Cons

    Unprofessional leadership, short break, poor training

    Advice to Management

    The management and replenishment organization needs more guidance and refreshing on what's appropriate. You are not at work to mingle period, yet people are already in "cliques" and they are feeling inferior to you in terms of job security so they don't see the reason to conform and improve their behavior. It's bad for the morale of the business.

    Pros

    Discount
    Nothing else is a pro here

    Cons

    Management
    Hours are non existent
    Co-workers are rude

    Advice to Management

    Actually work instead of handing tasks to others. Stop putting fault on other managers and not yourself. Assist the employees instead of just watching when help is needed.
    Stop getting your emotions mixed in work, as in stop yelling at people.

    Pros

    employee discount was a nice benefit.

    Cons

    Managers were extremely rude. I was once helping a customer at the register right before it was time for me to leave and I got in trouble for staying over my time for helping.....sorry i wanted your customers to have a good experience.

    I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time

    Pros

    Coworkers make the place bearable.

    Cons

    Management practices favoritism and other -isms. I gave a 1-star review because there is no "0" or minus rating.

    Advice to Management

    No point in giving advice to management. They think they are invincible and untouchable, and they act like it.

    Pros

    Early hours were supposed to be convenient

    Cons

    They would call and expect you to work last minute

    Advice to Management

    They wanted us to do 12 hours of work in 4-6 hours and get mad when things took longer than expected because of un-forseen circumstances

    Pros

    30% discount, lots of understanding coworkers who understand the way you feel about the job

    Cons

    Management can be very rude and moody, after a year I didn't look forward to coming to work anymore. I like to work with happy people. I was moved "up" to a sales associate after starting as a cashier. I started hating it more and more. the go backs piled up every 10 mins and it was just terrible.....oh the horror!!!! Not only that but customers wanted to use the same coupon 50 times in different transactions and would argue if you said that was not allowed.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees nicely. I was putting go backs away one day and the manager slammed a basket of more go backs into my cart which I felt was uncalled for..

    I worked at Michaels Stores part-time

    Pros

    The first store manager was a very good manager and all the employees was very nice

    Cons

    The second store manager was very rude and racist . He would not help me with anything , he would say things like I should know it and do it like he didn't want to help but he'll help the other race if his kind out. I can't work under people like that so I left

    Advice to Management

    Get a new store manager
