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

    Pros

    I liked the people I worked with and working around arts and crafts.

    Cons

    They start you off with a low salary and if your lucky you get a less than 30 cent raise a year. They intentionally have a bare-bones staff so that on paper it appears they have a low operating cost. It was always chaotic and unorganized. The people from corporate are unrealistic in their expectations especially in proportion to the pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want quality employees, give them quality pay. For a company that made upwards of 5 million dollars per year in a single store, I know you can afford to bump the pay. Also, give more hours to your stores. I know you're trying to be impressive on paper, but don't forget that it's the work of the "lesser" people that fills your pockets.
