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

Pros

Customers were fun to interact with, Flexible hours, easy work.

Cons

Retail pay ~ 9.45 in WA

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Overall a decent experience but not a great one, there was fairly quick turnover with some of the employees, and new management had to get rid of some of the older (not so great) employees. Some coworkers were horrible interacting with customers, but that is most likely a result of the retail environment.

    Pros

    Great people, good work environment

    Cons

    Training as-you-go, short breaks, no regular schedule for seasonal associates (i.e. morning shift one day, closing shift the next), no shelf or merchandise dusting leads to allergic reactions in both employees and customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more sales associates on the floor to keep merchandise dusted and clean, clean the air filters more often

    I worked at Michaels Stores part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only good thing was my co workers..........we all went through the same thing

    Cons

    The manager is an ego maniac and a male chovanist. He will degrade you as much as he can and in front of anyone who is around. The stock manager allows his workers to be treated like dogs, and does not stick up for them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to train their managers to show respect for their employees
