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

    Pros

    Everyone associated with michaels has treated me kindly. The managment here actively looks for artistic and crafty individuals whether it be scrapbooking, knitting or painting etc. In my time here it is a great learning opportunity for those of all levels of retail experience. Basic cashier position covers many different jobs; email collection, answering phone calls, adhering to coupon policies, stocking and cleaning.

    Cons

    Can get a little overwhelming considering customers can get out of hand. Multitasking is a MUST. Can suddenly get very busy and fast-paced during major holiday seasons.
