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

Pros

Great job for a college student. I worked replenishment and management worked with my schedule on days that I had class right after work (let me go early; schedule changes). It's a good environment to be in if you like crafts in any way.

Cons

If you're looking for a career, this would not be the job to have. Everyone working there, except a handful, are part time. During the summer (slow) months it is possible to work only 8-12 hours a week and can be sent home regularly.

    I worked at Michaels Stores part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    great people, great products, and the employee discount is fair

    Cons

    horrible policies and practices make it almost impossible to advance in a "career" here. hours can vary drastically week to week which really screws with the work load

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hint: Take a good look at those who work hardest because they just might be looking for a chance to advance. Don't miss the oppertunity to advance the great ones before they up and leave to FAIRER & GREENER pastures!

    Terrible regional managers, Their jobs are always on the line and they make sure yours is too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are looking for a career, stay away.
