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

Pros

Easy to learn the job and handle tasks so long as you stay under the radar and out of the way of the upper management.

Cons

Severe micromanaging, favoritism, lack of help from upper management.

Advice to Management

Just because you know how to run a business, doesn't mean you know how to run a store.

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

    Pros

    Great products and tools for crafty people, helping a guest figure out how to make their project a reality.

    Cons

    Lack of staff, managers were always grumpy and demanded some people do the work of 3 while others were allowed to goof off.

    Advice to Management

    Hire good workers who care about their jobs and expect each person to pull their own weight.
