I worked at Michaels Stores part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Very flexible scheduling. Great staff. Employee discounts. Good benefits. Descent pay. Art/craft classes available to staff.

Cons

Position I held was only seasonal. Pay period was every two weeks. Not very many hours scheduled weekly. Some confusion when it came to freight unloaded from the truck-what department it belonged to.

    I worked at Michaels Stores

    Pros

    Michaels was a good place to work. Lots of fun and creative people in all areas. I loved working with the people there the most. Everyone was supportive and worked hard. This was also a fast paced ever changing environment which I thrived on.

    Cons

    Because every department operated so lean, it created an enormous workload. Work/life balance was difficult. Also, the company outsourced a number of job functions to India and that made for a difficult transition. Unfortunately, people lost their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The right answer to improve profitability is not always to follow what other corporations are doing. Michaels is a place of creative thinkers. Be creative and come up with alternate plans to save and improve profitability and bring the jobs back to the US.
