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

    Pros

    Meeting new people everyday and learning a great deal about art and crafts.

    Cons

    Poor store management, constant change of managers and none of them ever knew how to run the store or bring structure to the store. For some reason they kept hiring and hiring more people which caused the older employee's hours to be cut drastically (sometimes I would only work 4-8 hours a week). Mangers only cared about themselves and their "favorite" employees. The favorite employees would often slack off and would essentially get paid to do nothing. Requesting days off was pointless, managers never looked at employee's request (it personally happened to me). Who ever was in charge of the schedules never put into consideration about our other part-time jobs or school schedules.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that have actual experience in managing stores. Managers that are truly leaders and care about all employees.

    I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    customers (greatest)
    associates (real talent is wasting out in the field)
    pay

    Cons

    payroll
    priorities all wrong. More thought is given to bonus than customer.
