I quit abruptly on Thanksgiving. The MOD expectations don’t correlate with the low wages that are offered. It was annoying to have someone monitor you with a clipboard when you’re making $8.50 per hour at a seasonal job. Moreover, I disagreed with registering a customer for Michael’s rewards programs without their consent. I was given feedback to ask for customers’ email addresses if they were not a rewards member. This deceptive practice is not aligned with my core values and beliefs, so I decided to quit. I enjoyed working with my coworkers, as well as the customers.

Management was terrible. Hours were cut for no reason. Was never offered any kind of raise or promotion.

The notion of being able to do your job is a fairy tale. The expectations are unrealistic. How do you expect to provide customer service with one cashier, a sales floor associate, a framer and an MOD. To get the store totally recovered, everyone was needed on register, customers needed help on the sales floor and tons of shopbacks that customers left everywhere. You get written up for not being able to get it all done. And framing cant help because they have their customers and production, then their side for recovery if they can get through it.

Poor management. Hours and days change constantly. Managers need more training.
Especially Long Island stores.

I left because of management. I see the store near me is looking for what looks like a complete turnover. Maybe I should apply again and see how and if it's changed for the better

Sad because I liked the hours and the work. Pay was to low and had to constantly earn your keep by moving at warp speed or you didn't keep your hours. Making a job that you enjoy, (regardless of pay) stressful!

I worked in store 1283 and the manager didnt even give me a two weeks notice. He just let me go, didnt even give me a phone call. He just took me off schedule and waited for me to catch a hint.
