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

Pros

flexible around class schedule, decent number of hours, fun environment, lots to learn about crafting/art supplies from coworkers and customers, rewarding experience overall

Cons

schedule occasionally changes with little to no notice, store rules vary and change from year to year (including signage standards), holidays can be very busy and extremely demanding

    I worked at Michaels Stores part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible scheduling. Great staff. Employee discounts. Good benefits. Descent pay. Art/craft classes available to staff.

    Cons

    Position I held was only seasonal. Pay period was every two weeks. Not very many hours scheduled weekly. Some confusion when it came to freight unloaded from the truck-what department it belonged to.

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

    Pros

    I was given freedom to use my own designs to improve sales and i enjoyed many customers that i worked with.

    Cons

    as the floral designer at michaels for 4 years i was told that if i made sales of 80,000 a year i wouldbecome a full time associate with benifits. In the 4 yrs that i was with the company i was number one in sales for the district the majority of the time. earned many awards and execeeded sales expectations sometimes by 40% even with that store sales declining i was told if i made 80,000 for the year in custom floral i would be full time. I achieved sales of just over 80,000 the last week of the fiscal year . I was congratulated by my store manager first one in district to make it to full time. Three weeks into the new year i was still at 24 hours a week so i asked district manager when i was going to full time he said I dont agree with this but cororate said it was a leep year so it doesnt count . This is not a joke this really happened. I worked my butt off with promises of raises and full time for 4 years. Michaels changes the rules every day so if you work there and were promised a raise dont count on it.

    Advice to Management

    know who your leaders are and take care of the employee as you expect them to take care of your store, and help earn your bonus.
