I worked at Michaels Stores part-time for 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 have been working at Michaels Stores full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    30% discount on craft supplies that are way over priced.

    Cons

    Greedy corporate. Doesn't promote from within. Company is in as much debt as it's worth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating employees better, offer better benefits. We are the backbone, we make your paychecks possible.

    Pros

    It was a fun place to work and the people were quite great there.

    Cons

    To many crafts, and it reeks of cinnamon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not really much you can offer as advice to a craft store. Find new ways to bring in customers
