    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.

    Perfect as a temporary job, mind numbing long term.

    I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you have great managers and a great team the work will be easy.

    Cons

    Your store will more than likely be understaffed and you will work multiple positions. The amount of work that you do will make the wage you're paid feel like a pat on the head.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase payroll so stores are adequately staffed, Replenishment (the backbone of the store) should be paid accordingly, planogram reshuffling should make sense and not feel like a random decision.
