I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time

Pros

flexible scheduling, access to materials to test out before you buy them, not horrible music on the PA

Cons

uncooperative management teams, unmotivated sales and cashier staff, no payroll for training new employees, a new corporate program every three weeks, needy and arrogant customers, no support from corporate when enforcing policies - always have to roll over and let the customers walk all over you, associate discount does not include sale items - which almost everything is.

Advice to Management

stop trying to constantly implement new programs and tweak the ones you already have. also, evaluate your distribution of payroll hours.

    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.
