I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time

Pros

Michaels offers a challenging retail environment to work in. The store revolves around its training programs, and encourages its employees to move to the next level.

Cons

Michaels has strict operational guidelines to follow. All employees need to be on board with learning the process. More often than not employees choose to stand around not do their job. That makes it tough for the rest of us.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Raise pay scale in order to attract employees with better work ethics. Will balance out in the end.

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

    Pros

    I love arts and crafts so it was nice helping customers with their project ideas

    Cons

    You work your tail off for low pay, I was getting 11 hours a week when I originally told I'd get atleast 30 and then it would be full time. The management is very disorganized and really do not care about their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate your store managers and ask employees what improvements can be made

    Pros

    Great people to work with, compensation is competitive, lots of opportunity.

    Cons

    Work load versus hours to complete it is sometimes unobtainable and completely ridiculous, no work-life balance.
