I worked at Michaels Stores part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Decent employee discount. Flexible schedule.

Cons

Low pay. Standing all day and walking around picking up merchandise off the floor.
Shelves and displays are over-packed and store is always a mess!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat employees with more respect and give new employees a store map to help customers find things. Also, make sure that sale items ring up at register correctly.

    I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time

    Pros

    Really friendly co-workers and management, pretty good hours (when you can get them), policies that make sense.

    Cons

    There aren't enough people scheduled to do all the work required of us, and there aren't enough hours to go around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire more people than you need, and schedule more people. A skeleton crew isn't good for the customers or for us.

    Pros

    Days where there are great customers and coworkers. Eventually seeing certain customers and making small talk is always nice.

    Cons

    I work as a cashier. It sucks working when theres rushes because there's only one cashier, and sometimes they expect you to get through it by yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Notify all employees when there is something new going on with the company/corporate.
