I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time (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 Management

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

    I worked at Michaels Stores part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The employee discount was nice, but did not make up for the various shortcomings of the job. Not much more to say.

    Unpleasant management staff that were rude to employees. Not very much training offered.

    Try being more polite to workers.
