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

    Pros

    Can cross train in many positions in the store.
    Management is easy to approach.
    Fun environment.
    Plenty of activities where you can contribute.
    Uniform is jeans and store t-shirt.

    It is a great job for someone looking for their first job. I performed many positions in the store (sales associate, cashier, stocking, cake decorating instructor, etc.) and now this job is what stands out the most in my resume when it comes out to entry-level experience.

    Cons

    Worked some 3 hour shifts.
    Minimun pay.
    No benefits for part-time.
    Not many full-time positions.

    I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Being a cashier/ sales associate is going to be unenjoyable almost everywhere in retail, but it isn't so bad when you like the people you work with. I love everyone I work with, and all of my managers are very understanding and kind. They treat employees like human beings, not puppets.

    Cons

    Hourly pay for cashier/ sales associates is low. You do get raises within time, but that will take a great while to add up if you want to stay in the same position.
