    I worked at Michaels Stores part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The hours were flexible, and the managers were understanding. They helped me to train for the job and gave me many responsibilities.

    Cons

    The store was always a mess, so there was always something to be done. Some employees slacked off, and that caused others to have to pick up more work.
