Fun place to work....sometimes
Operations Manager/Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Alberta, Canada – 30 November 2018
To be fair, there was a lot of transition in the whole Canadian branch of the company at the time I worked there. In the first 8 months, I had 3 DMs, 3 General Managers and the CEO retired.
Oddly, Michaels did not encourage any fraternization, even just socially, with subordinates.
As OPS manager, I was responsible for employee retention and attempted to establish a social crafting club for our employees outside of work. I was taken into the office by my DM and told to stop doing that because of the no fraternization rule.
Excellent benefits, interesting work, great SOP for the store model
