I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Strong employer with growth potential. Reasonably fair in how it treats its associates. The company has a strong focus on its customers, and capable management. Though in debt, the company manages the debt well.

Cons

Culture can be difficult for some. High performance expectations can mean pressure is placed on associates to perform. Like many retailers, the challenge is to do more with less.

    Pros

    Given lots of credit if you do your job correctly, Very flexible with your schedule, great and fun co workers.

    Cons

    You won't always know whether youre on the managers good or bad side, they almost always make you work if you are on the stock team on Fridays and Saturday mornings. Crazy customers, and go backs get really crazy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your workers and keep workers business confidential.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, friendly and outgoing environment, not stuffy like some businesses. Ideas/suggestions always welcomed, and some implemented.

    Cons

    Benefits for part time is not so great - maybe they could offer full time benefits to part time after they've been there for a certain period of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the culture! Always was a fun place to work, didn't feel like work, and the people there made it easy to do my job!
