Pros

Festive and artsy surroundings, flexible hours, employee discounts

Cons

Managers played favorites; they would give promotions without really giving every employee and opportunity to apply for that promotion. Difficult to get hours unless it was Christmas or Black Friday. If you think it's the place to further your art career or craft career, it's not unless you become one of the manager's favorites. The pay was nothing to really brag about, but I didn't expect much working retail anyway.

Advice to Management

Do not EVER play favorites.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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