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

Pros

Working closly with customers in framing dept is nice, some great employees trying to improve on discordant management/corporate guidiance

Cons

Arbitrary goals with no real world backing, having same expectations from all stores regardless of the extreme differences in socio-economic dynamics of areas. Not the highest of quality materials.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think of something other than performance bonus, realize that your employees are what make or break a store. Actually listen to feedback and address issues.

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

    Pros

    This was the worst job of my entire career. I would never put myself thru this again, and would not recommend it to others.

    Cons

    Terrible hours, mostly in 4 hour incruments, disrespectful management, filthy store and unsafe working conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This upper management from Texas must be too cowardly to sign up for the popular "Undercover Boss" series on TV. They want to hide their heads in the sand and keep cashing their own checks. They must not be interested in improving the working conditions for their employees.
