I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time

Pros

Very lenient workplace where you get to experience a variety of positions. If you want days off, it'll be easy to have with flexible schedules.

Cons

Doing more work than you should and have to be a good multi-tasker to accomplish everything efficiently.

Advice to Management

Put more people on the floor on registers instead of making one cashier available at a certain shift.

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

    Pros

    Can cross train in many positions in the store.
    Management is easy to approach.
    Fun environment.
    Plenty of activities where you can contribute.
    Uniform is jeans and store t-shirt.

    It is a great job for someone looking for their first job. I performed many positions in the store (sales associate, cashier, stocking, cake decorating instructor, etc.) and now this job is what stands out the most in my resume when it comes out to entry-level experience.

    Cons

    Worked some 3 hour shifts.
    Minimun pay.
    No benefits for part-time.
    Not many full-time positions.
