    I loved loved loved my job at Michaels. Everyone there was genuinely a team player. We always had fun at work. I'd love to work there again.

    Cons

    Pay is low but if you work during your shift instead of goof off then you will get the hours.

    Advice to Management

    Rotate weekends off.

    Pros

    Very nice co-workers and management. Everyone from the store manager down to us bottom of the food chain cashiers care about our store and work as a team. Having a good store manager and assistant manager that know how to lead effectively without being harsh, condescending or "bossy" makes working at this store a pleasure.

    Cons

    Constantly changing schedules from one week to another, inconsistent hours given.

    Advice to Management

    More training for incoming employees instead of the sink or swim method, especially seasonal hires as the volume of customers/transactions during the holidays can be overwhelming to new workers.

    Pros

    Friendly managers, working with materials related to my interests.

    Cons

    I would have liked to have been immediately trained to be in framing (what they said they'd like me doing, since I had experience with matting artwork etc).

    Pros

    Great managers, all of them. The team members are all pleasant to work with, always ready to help and answer questions. I am very grateful to be part of such a wonderful group of people. The manager works with you as far as needing time off and is very fair and understanding. I love going to work!

    Cons

    Some of the customers have attitudes that have to be dealt with. Otherwise, I have no cons.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing their best and I say keep it up!

    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 Management

    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!
