    Pros

    Awesome benefits! 401 K for Full and Part time employees!

    Cons

    The pay is minimum wage and only increases once every 6 months and is based on YOUR performance!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay so turnaround is not as great and you can keep your loyal employees!

    I worked at Michaels Stores full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    pay was ok. people were good in store level.

    Cons

    no holidays off, none.Don't pay for any of the 3 normal summer holidays, although corporate and dm's and higher get it off. Only salaried employee in building so guess who gets the unpaid extra hours?
    treated horribly by upper management,associates are the stupid people they need to talk slow to and micro manage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    look at your regional mangers and inexperienced dm's. you would be horrified.
