While working at Michaels, I definitely honed my customer service skills, however, I had low wages and worked hard for it. The management was pretty good, but there was constant talking of customers in a bad way by a couple employees, which did not promote a good work environment. In addition, when I asked for more hours, they declined and said that only managers had more hours, but were unwilling to train me as a manager.
Was this review helpful? Yes No. Share Tweet. Copy link. Enjoyed getting to work in the classroom and organize events. Overall I enjoyed the job and the company but recent changes were making things harder and less and less worth it at the end. In store discount, fairly flexible schedule, fun events in store. Short breaks , management is hit or miss, restructuring positions increased work load.
Yes 1 No. The managers don't typically handle stress well and despite hard work and dedication it feels as though your best efforts are never appreciated. The hours are all over the place, inconsistent and not conducive to a living wage. Its a nice place the people that good there the manager's the leads are awsome people good benefits ans always your 40 hours and always have good deals.
With the lower than average pay per hour, lack of any benefits and no chance of ever being a full time employee. For somebody actually adulting, this job will not be enough to live an above poverty level life style.
Yes 2 No. Job seekers rely on your experience. Every work experience is unique. Let people know your thoughts on previous employers. Whoever has taken the CEO position has drastically hurt the morale in stores. He has cut payroll and raised expectations higher with more paperwork and taskings with unreal expectations if you are cutting hours payroll budget but yet raising planned sales in stores.
First few years were great attainable goals for the most part. Did not make all goals but made all but one accomplished something just to be torn down by a partial reviewcontributed positive results. I adore the crew and everyone there, it truly felt like a family.

The pay was terrible and the hours are based on how many rewards sign ups you get, which sucks because you can't force people to sign up for a coupon spam email. Hours should be based on hard work and dependability, period.
Raises aren't really a thing, maybe 10 cents a year. This is a good place to work if you're a high school student or just want some extra cash. Not good to work here if you actually need money and hours. We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best! Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Michaels? Michaels is a typical retail job. There is more work to do than time to get it done. High expectations with minimal pay. Everybody was friendly and helpful as possible, but job demand compared to paying scale is not for me.
Yes 3 No. They pay you so little, but expect you to do so much in return.
Management is bad, our hours are too. I had a wonderful store and operation management team. I loved my job there until it coincided with my life as a single mother. I was unable to work enough hours to have medical benefits.
I worked two years at Michaels. The corporate office often threw curve balls at you will excessive coupon usage that often contradicted each other, so be prepared to be screamed at about coupons. I was often told the promotion offers work like a horizontal ladder here. Raises are based on promotions, and also you get one areound every year. That also depends on your assesment as a sales associate, etc. Other than that, this place is kind of like a small family.
They often told me that the promot. You get to work in a craft store, employee relationships. Work-life balance just not there. Micromanaged by corporate. Yes 1 No 1. Managers are cold and rude, but put up a front to keep you there, because in truth, they need you more than you need them. Management is bad, our hours are too. Kid crafting classes were fun.

Other than that, this place is kind of like a small family. They often told me that the promot. Work-life balance just not there. Micromanaged by corporate. Poor management. Managers are cold and rude, but put up a front to keep you there, because in truth, they need you more than you need them. They only help out who they consider to be their favorites, they show favoritism. Maybe it was just my store but best place to work my backend. Hot mess. There a ZERO benefits and the way they keep cost down is having a bunch of new people and everyone splits the day into 4 hours shifts.
People were highly annoying. Fast - paced, lifted boxes, hard working, great place to work just not many benefits besides a discount. Unloaded and loaded trucks, stocked the store. Is a good job if you don't want to work too many hours. I need more hours then what they are giving.
People that work there are very nice and they will help you when needed.
Part time only. Ok place, lots of managers come and go and all trained differently. Good work life balance. You don't get many hours sometimes only hours a week. Some go as high as varies each week when new schedule is made. You are not told you have to work holidays until week of holiday. Great job. I previous employment with then. I really liked thisjob.
The way mangers are. The art that i am surrounded with.
It we a good time and good pay for starting out. Great job for a teenager. Management definitely played favorites , but all in all a great first time job for a teenager or college student. High turn over. Management is constantly shifting, poor hours and internal discrimination. Managers have their favorites and if you are on the outside or make someone angry for any reason, your hours get cut.
People with family emergencies and children can expect to get less than 12 hours weekly and told there are no hours available while hours intended for their position is given elsewhere. It felt like high school drama all over again. Okay place to work. Michaels was an okay place to work.
The hours were random. You only get full time from Halloween to Christmas and then you'd be lucky to get 15 hours a week. Pay is beyond Cheep and they expect you to do work that would normally take a week to be done in 2 days or less. Review this company. Claimed Profile Review this company.
