    Pros

    Flexible hours, decent pay, nice coworkers, honest managers, easy work

    Cons

    Not a lot of hours, cut hours, dealing with sassy customers, folding tshirts, learning through michael's university

    Advice to Management

    Tell every cashier and sales person how to do something the same way, instead of telling people differently

  2. Overall a good job

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers as well as costumers. Costumers love being there, so you hardly get a bad costumer. Also during Christmas you get a lot of business so time flys.

    Cons

    Pays minimum wage and only get 12 hours a week. After Christmas, January and February are very slow and can be boring.

  3. Great Place to work!

    Pros

    The people I work with are all easy to get alone with and the employee discount is great, especially if you are an arts and crafty person to begin with.

    Cons

    Some of the customers can be the worst but in the end it is all worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget that workers have lives outside of work.

    Pros

    They have a Michael's Cares Program, which means they are raising money to help employees with financial needs.

    They have an associate's discount program (Blackstone Marketplace) in which you can virtually buy anything with a discount.

    They also donate a lot of their stuff.

    Cons

    Be prepared to get dirty fingernails!

    Advice to Management

    You're doing great

    Pros

    Fun environment. Discount and get to meet and work with crafty people.

    Cons

    Not really team players. It seems like more important that every tool you need is in correct labeled spot and nothing else. Which means to throw out stuff very wasteful. Some managers are to clicky and immature. If you are not full time (very very few are) then you don't matter.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the office instead of gossiping about all us part timers. You should also check out other stores to see what is going on

    Pros

    The co-workers are very nice and the managers are easy to work with. They will have your back and they are very fair with scheduling hours. They take the time to adjust to your schedule whether you go to school, etc

    Cons

    Sometimes it can get really busy and there aren't always enough co-workers working at the time to make things run smoothly.
