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

Pros

if you are a hard, dedicated worker, there will be plenty of open doors ahead of you. there's so much to learn with product knowledge and store operations. good benefits for employees. very comfortable, fun and creative working environment! resources for school, adoption assistance, etc..

Cons

the pay rates and hours may be considered low for those seeking a busy work schedule, however that changes if you prove to be a value asset to the company, and quickly! unable to continue offering health insurance to part-time employees, but still offers life and vision.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

maybe it's just because I think my store is awesome and my superiors have been wonderful mentors, but I am proud to say I work for this company!

    I worked at Michaels Stores full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    You are surrounded by arts and crafts materials and creative people!
    Good pay at the management level.

    Cons

    Retail hours, sometimes unrealistic goals for the number of payroll hours given.
    If the DM is getting all of his charts and paperwork done by the store manager, he will let her get away with anything.....up to and including losing good people with her sour attitude and total lack of management ability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If a certain store can't seem to keep its Customer Experience Managers (ie. 3 different managers quitting within the same number of years), you should conduct exit interviews to find out why. You are losing good people (and not just myself!) because of inept management....and the DM knows it and does't care.
