I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great salary and advancement opportunity, excellent benefits

Cons

You have to know how to network, wait in line for quite some time for the chance to advance, and the HR liasons are supposed to be there to help you but you never hear from them and they are terrible at follow up.....and if you do figure out the system, you will quite possibly be overlooked for someone coming in from the outside.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Specific career plans, stop bringing in outside people in lieu of promoting from within.

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

    Pros

    Fun products, efficient walkie talkie system, breaks

    Cons

    The store had to cut hours due to not achieving daily sales goals, so everyone's hours got cut. Due to the skeleton crew during the hours that I did work, it was very hard to take care of the customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bag check should be prior to clocking out. Cumulatively, employees spend hours waiting to get their bag checked before leaving.
