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

    Pros

    I found the management to be quite kind and considerate most of the time, and many customers were fun to work with. If you like arts and crafts, you may enjoy helping folks find project ideas and supplies.

    Cons

    Pay is low, but probably average for entry-level retail. Specialized jobs like framing, floral, and instructors are not paid very well for the amount and type of work they do. Some customers, as in most retail environments, can be very rude. Store is often understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The emphasis on numbers results in low pay, high turnover, and understaffed stores.
    Many store processes are redundant and inefficient. Often feels as if we are not keeping up with current retail climates.
