I worked at Michaels Stores part-time for less than a year

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 ManagementAdvice

Do not EVER play favorites.

    I worked at Michaels Stores full-time

    Pros

    I learned very fast what was important to stay on top of. Building a strong team in your store was the only way to be successful and happy. I did not want to move into District management with Michaels. The bonus system for store managers was not very good, considering what their annual salaries were.

    Cons

    We put a lot of hours into training good people but couldn't keep them because we never had enough hours to go around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Team building with area store managers, it's not all about competition. Better planning handed down in a timely manner to the store level. (!!!!)
