I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time (less than a year)

Pros

Almost all the workers are quite nice and friendly. Lots of choices for products and it offers a good discount for the employees. Specially when you get appreciation week. Also has Michaels Cares for people in need.

Cons

Little training. I was hired as seasonal and with the crowds that we originally got it was frightening and quite disconcerting.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have a stable schedule. It is hard to plan a weekend when you don't know when you are going to work.

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Better employee discount now. Good craft supplies available. Great store manager. pretty flexible with time-off requests sometimes.

    Cons

    Few hours/pay rate. Little room for advancement/full-time hours. Lots of turn around. You are needed to wear many hats.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back up not over your store managers.
    Appreciate your good employees that you have....not when they've left.

    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.
