    I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great bonus program based on results.
    Most executives treat you with respect and will try to help you at the store level.
    Bigger company than you think with stores all around the country.

    Cons

    Lots to learn it can be overwhelming, normally takes a couple of years to understand.
    Technology is outdated, trying to catch up fast.
    Not always held to same standards from store to store can be upsetting.

    Advice to Management

    When managers change stores and things look like they suddenly are struggling dig in several stores look good on the surface but have not been run effectively for years. Takes some time to truly change the culture in a store. Don't reward stores that look good but underlying operations are terrible then next manager looks bad when trying to run operation to company expectations.

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

    Pros

    The fact that seasonal merchandise changes frequently, makes it an interesting place to work, and most of the coworkers try their best to get everything they've been assigned completed.

    Cons

    The company doesn't want to spend money on payroll. Most people have do the work of three. And management is continually harped on by corporate to get more done with less. They don't care about the customer at all, just the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    If you truly cared about your customers, start caring about your employees. They are your front line, and when they're miserable, your customers will be too.
