I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

I can no longer think of any.

Cons

No sense of American pride and most of the products are imported from China. Difficult productivity standards in the Distribution network. Frequent mandatory overtime and little opportunity for advancement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of the people that keep this business going.

    I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    helping customers with projects was pretty awesome - I developed a near-encyclopedic knowledge of the contents of the store and that, coupled with some previous craft experience, meant that I could often give customers outside the box suggestions about their projects.

    Cons

    I was hired in October and through the holidays there were plenty of hours for all of us. After the holidays were over, rather than letting anyone go, we started seeing schedules with like eight hours a week. Sometimes we'd be scheduled for short shifts that hardly even felt worth coming in for. I worked hard and was one of the more reliable employees but still got the short end of the stick. I could make up those hours some weeks by taking shifts for other employees but it became pretty ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Paying people minimum wage and giving them minimal hours is not the way to attract quality employees.

    Train your employees and please gives people more hours.I loved my time at Michaels but a mother of 4 can't live on 4 hours a week.Not everyone who work there is a teenager.Some people do work here to survive.
