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.

    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 Management

    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.

  2. It had its ups and downs but I met a good support system in my coworkers.

    Pros

    The customers were great as well as my colleagues. Management was there if I needed anthing, they worked with the needs of my schedule.

    Cons

    Sometimes the amount of hours were low and higher management sometimes had unrealistic goals.

    Advice to Management

    Ask the stores themselves for suggestions on how to improve.
