I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Diversity of coworkers
Promotes internally
Variety of internal programs to keep employees engaged

Cons

The good ole boy influence is very clear in smaller departments
Too many employees in the HQ, cramped work spaces
Surveys are given to employees to "vent" but no changes are made from survey results, instead departments are reprimanded for honesty.

Advice to Management

If you will not address the internal issues identified, stop asking employees to waste time on a lengthy, detailed survey.

    I worked at Michaels Stores full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to expand your knowledge of arts and crafts and manage people who live their hobby and craft.

    Cons

    Silly overstepping of corporate direction from 100 different directions, hard to maintain expectations when they change at the drop of a hat.

    I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people you work with are fun, and like family. the tasks daily are usually easy. its not really a "job" its really more of small tasks to help daily functions due to Over staffing issues. (at times understaff) but still tedious tasks..

    Cons

    the hours suck, the pay isn't worth the drive for your shift. Most of the customers ask you things they already know.. so look out, they snap if you are wrong...the company sets standards but expects you to go way above them, with little time, and also little training. "even when they have given you time" the raises are like returning pop cans to the store.. about one a year...

    Advice to Management

    my advice is promote from with in, and hire less. more employees who know and love there job will want full time. and willing to work it. stop with the policy making and changing of minds after its done said...
