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

    Pros

    My store manager and co-workers are great. The pay is very good compared to other retail stores. Hours are good if you are a hard worker and there are plenty of oppurtunites to advance in the company if you learn quick and work hard.

    Cons

    Extremely needy customers and absolutely no product knowledge traning. Payroll is unrealistically allocated to each store causing long lines, messy stores, a lot of returns, and angry customers. Outdated technology and countless errors from simple spelling mistakes in policies to computer program errors.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to realize that their silly ideas like walking around with a cart full of baskets will not make customers happy. More registers open and more people on the sales floor are needed to actually say hello to and help every single customer. Work on payroll and traning.

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

    Pros

    Scheduling can be fairly flexible. Enjoy working with some of the other associates. Customers are usually friendly.

    Cons

    The pay and pay raises are quite low for the amount of work expected in the amount of time given to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth and reward the people who have earned and deserve it with better pay compensation and benefit packages for part time employees.
