Shots in the dark.

Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee)

I worked at Michaels Stores as a contractor for less than a year

ProsI love this store and I loved working here the ambiance was right up my alley considering it was a craft store that could easily double as a step-ahead-of-last-resort if one is really trying to avoid having to go to blick's. The work is fast paced but there is room for advancement and benefits, etc.

ConsIt really depends on which one you go to because stock is different depending on where you go and so is management it could be great at one store or just terrible like you won't believe it and well I say read reviews before you go in one and call ahead of time for stock checks because you'll learn a lot more than if you just show up at the store also try using the 'online catalogue' and I put it that way because you cannot place online orders as one would presume.

Advice to Senior ManagementNew management that has less issues it's okay to have bad days but everyday is a bit much.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
