    I worked at Aaron Brothers Art and Framing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, not always busy, clean, ok benefits, ok district managers and some ok upper staff

    Cons

    Need help you are almost always on your own. Very low raises once a year and if the stores sales are down don't expect more than 5 cents.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees because they are hands on with the customers and other staff and know what the store needs more than you.

    Pros

    I love the creative environment. Awesome art supplies and employee discounts. Fun, fast paced environment with great customers! Inspiring product!

    Cons

    Upper management has high expectations of task load versus competitive wages. Sometimes inconsistent, conflicting or minimal communication trickles down to the store level.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear, concise and double check before rolling communication out to the store teams. Increase the standards and the quality of product.

    I have been working at Aaron Brothers Art and Framing full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The only good thing I can say is, as a G.M., I write my own schedule.

    Cons

    Technology is horrible. Marketing is a joke. Training is basically non-existent. They do not truly care about the team members in the field.

    I worked at Aaron Brothers Art and Framing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Smaller employee base in each store, fun work, great discount at all Michaels stores.

    Cons

    Company knows employees are not payed well enough; doesn't care. Very micro-managed.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of hiring a bunch of people to minimize labor and pay rates, hire just enough employees to work all hours and be payed properly. Maybe consider the transportation situations of employees a bit more when making schedules.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Decent pay for Salaried managers (median wage for industry). Occasional opportunity to be creative.

    Cons

    Poor recruitment practices and systems which are a constant burden for hiring managers. Turnover is astronomical due to companies inability to adapt to wage trends within the market. Consistently poor materials handed down to shops who are asked to placate disgruntled customers.

    Advice to Management

    Adapt to the marketplace more quickly. Pen and paper application processes are really dragging you down.
