I worked at Michaels Stores full-time

Pros

They pay pretty well for what they ask you to do. They have sample sales that are great if you like to craft. The work environment is not that bad.

Cons

Dealing with items that are outsourced can get to be a problem. Not much work-life balance in our department.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If it's not broke, don't fix it.

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

    Pros

    There were some really exceptional, knowledgeable people who worked in the store where I was employed. They had a good work ethic and cared about their fellow employees and the customers.

    Cons

    They expected you to get 8 hours of work done in 4 hours. I was a part time employee and there was no way I could have finished even half of what they expected every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the front line people who work hard for you every day. They have a lot of good ideas on how to get things accomplished more efficiently.
