    Pros

    discounts
    wear jeans at work

    Cons

    Bad hours (like expect 10 or 5 or if you're lucky 15), outstandingly sloppy management. Last minute schedule changes, and don't inspect to be informed of it either. Unfair and childish points system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Under no circumstance, no matter how stressful your job is, should you be unprofessional and treat or talk to your employees like they are dumb and incompetent children. Using rude tones and words is inexcusable and highly unprofessional. You would not treat a customer this way, so you better not treat your HARDWORKING employees this way either. Childish.

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

    Pros

    The fact that seasonal merchandise changes frequently, makes it an interesting place to work, and most of the coworkers try their best to get everything they've been assigned completed.

    Cons

    The company doesn't want to spend money on payroll. Most people have do the work of three. And management is continually harped on by corporate to get more done with less. They don't care about the customer at all, just the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you truly cared about your customers, start caring about your employees. They are your front line, and when they're miserable, your customers will be too.
