I'm about to leave mine because of favoritism, management and my work not meaning a darn thing to them. I've worked here for three years and the entire time a new manager started(bout 6months in) I was treated like an outcast because I knew my job better than he did but he wanted to nitpick over everything I did even though I know it was alright. And now after 3 years for a month straight I've been given only one day a week. While other newer employees have gotten more than that.... I am so done.....

Mine is the same as pretty much everyone else's. It's the management! I got hired on seasonally, then they just kept me - no formal offer or anything. The first manager was great, but the staff didn't like him and I don't know why. The second manager was a disgrace, and I had to leave.

Overt favoritism. You are either a hero or a zero. The decision as to which group you fell into was totally arbitrary. There are lots of ”hero’s” watching YouTube videos in the break room most of their shift. Also, many “zeroes” busting their butts with not so much as a thank you.

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.
