Michaels Stores Reviews

I am currently a sales representative at a Michael retail store and within my 2+ years working in with the company, I would say that I had a great experience! My co-workers are caring and supportive of one another. We all work together so that we can get the job done quicker and effectively. My managers are very understanding and caring to their employers as well. They would give us very flexible hours, which is extremely important for me especially since I am also a college student. The only thing that concerns me (at least for my store) is that we're often understaffed, especially during the weekday evening shifts where the most amount of customers would arrive. It can sometimes get to the point that we would too busy helping out customers that we barely have time to do anything else.
Other than that, I have had a wonderful time working for this company and if anyone is considering working for this company, I say go for it!

It's a standard experience were a fun, cooperative team can make any day not boring! Sometimes work might seem draining on very long days, but with how busy the store is, the work at the register is most important. Smiling, speaking to the costumers in casual chat, and ensuring they know the policies of coupons and our sales will benefit not only them but the staff at the store in the future.
If you have to work a minimum wage job, this isn't a half bad place to do it. Not going to lie, the experience is very typical of any other store. The thing that was very different in my experience was that the workers were much more creative. Lots of people had fun doing mini promotional banner competitions and such. And everyone was much kinder than your average store coworker. So if you like things like that, you'd probably do great there!

Teaching art classes there is also really nice. You get to make your own schedule and everything. But you have to keep in mind that the people who go are more of a 'sip wine and paint by number' type rather than a 'studious disciple' type.
