Horrible Management and Toxic Environment
Working for a company that has a 90% turnover rate, you know it's going to be bad. However, I beat the odds and managed to stay for a year and 2 months. I worked part-time to earn some money for college, however I was only able to make $5,000 for the entire year on a $10/hr salary. The hours were inconsistent, where often I would average only 6 hours a week. Management can be summed up as toxic, where people would be fired over text or sometimes not alerted at all. There was constant gossiping in the break rooms between managers about employees behind their backs. A manager texted me to say that a coworker of mine's FATHER had just DIED. A coworker of mine found out she had been fired because she hadn't been scheduled for 3 weeks. The customers in the area are disgusting, I have had to witness fecal matter and vomit all over the bathrooms and even the aisles. I can't blame that on the store though. The ONLY reason why I continued to work at Michael's was because my parents wanted me to have a job. I can't speak for the company as a whole, but this particular location is horrible and my advice for anyone wanting to work at Michael's is RUN.
