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

Pros

Management was extremely friendly and willing to help whenever needed. Everyone always had an upbeat attitude, even when things were stressful for us. My co-workers were all amazing individuals who helped whenever they could and created a great team, as well as a wonderful work environment. Even during Christmas time, the customers were fantastic and I can count on one hand the number of unhappy customers I dealt with.

Cons

I can't think of any particular downside to working at Michaels. Overall, it was a very positive place to work. Other than the high volume of customers and resulting demand that was caused by the holidays, I really enjoyed working at Michaels.

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

    Pros

    Great salary and advancement opportunity, excellent benefits

    Cons

    You have to know how to network, wait in line for quite some time for the chance to advance, and the HR liasons are supposed to be there to help you but you never hear from them and they are terrible at follow up.....and if you do figure out the system, you will quite possibly be overlooked for someone coming in from the outside.

    Advice to Management

    Specific career plans, stop bringing in outside people in lieu of promoting from within.


  2. "Not a very pleasant experience."

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

    Pros

    The employee discount was nice, but did not make up for the various shortcomings of the job. Not much more to say.

    Cons

    Unpleasant management staff that were rude to employees. Not very much training offered.

    Advice to Management

    Try being more polite to workers.
