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

Pros

Co-workers are usually laid back, customers are mostly friendly and are excited about the products, and the work hours are very flexible. For entry-level, it is a good place to work.

Cons

Don't always get enough work hours, don't always have enough people working to finish all tasks, and turn over rate is high so you are always training new people. Also, specifically at my store, the replenishment hours are ridiculously early. Sometimes can be repetitive work.

Advice to Management

Honesty is always the best policy.

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

    Pros

    The people are super nice, I don't work nights or weekends, and you can pretty much slack off at work without getting in trouble, so long as it looks like you're doing something. I always am working hard, but many of the employees there do like nothing. It's a pretty chill atmosphere and my bosses are great and flexible.

    Cons

    I only get about 8 hours a week, and I am working minimum wage. Also, there is a lot of favoritism between employees and the staff

    Advice to Management

    Hire less people! That way the people working there could get more hours.

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

    Pros

    ok benefits, great coworkers, decent schedule for a retail job, for the most part a fun work enviroment, ok dress code

    Cons

    as a corporation, they try to promote this image of caring about the employees, but its really whatever will save them a cent. crappy raises, basically you just make enough to keep up with the rate of inflation. i have never experienced so much miromanagement in my life
