I worked at Michaels Stores part-time for less than a year

Pros

The employee discount was nice, but did not make up for the various shortcomings of the job. Not much more to say.

Cons

Unpleasant management staff that were rude to employees. Not very much training offered.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try being more polite to workers.

    I worked at Michaels Stores part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Management was extremely friendly and willing to help whenever needed. Everyone always had an upbeat attitude, even when things were stressful for us. My co-workers were all amazing individuals who helped whenever they could and created a great team, as well as a wonderful work environment. Even during Christmas time, the customers were fantastic and I can count on one hand the number of unhappy customers I dealt with.

    Cons

    I can't think of any particular downside to working at Michaels. Overall, it was a very positive place to work. Other than the high volume of customers and resulting demand that was caused by the holidays, I really enjoyed working at Michaels.
