Approves of CEO

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.

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

    Pros

    I love arts and crafts so it was nice helping customers with their project ideas

    Cons

    You work your tail off for low pay, I was getting 11 hours a week when I originally told I'd get atleast 30 and then it would be full time. The management is very disorganized and really do not care about their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate your store managers and ask employees what improvements can be made

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

    Pros

    If you work hard and stand out there are amazing opportunities. The customers are a real cool bunch, and the employees are like family. Great part time job if you are in school or you have another part time job. Easy to get time off.

    Cons

    The pay is low and the hours aren't that great. There aren't too many full time positions so not too many benefits. People come and go as well as call out on a regular basis....and they kind of guilt trip you to stay and fill the shift.

    Advice to Management

    If you do what you are supposed to do on a regular basis and hire employees who are willing to actually work then you won't be scrambling and freaking out when the district manger stops by... if you want to motivate your employees then lead by example....don't hide in the office your whole shift or feel that just because you have a title that makes you above doing menial tasks..A good manager doesn't forget were they came from and remembers that they used to be the little guy..
