    I worked at Michaels Stores part-time for 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try being more polite to workers.

    I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility
    Opportunities to "try something new" in a career path

    Cons

    Work/life balance (Depending where you land)
    Little interaction among departments
    Management needs development

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more keen on actual management experience when moving people into those positions
    HR should do more to follow up with new hires to ensure they are transitioning well into the company
    Follow through of employee development plans
