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

    Pros

    Love the products, enjoyed my coworkers.

    Cons

    Poor management, hardly any hours, minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline your decisions. Instead of having to ask your immediate supervisor who then has to ask their immediate supervisor and so on and so forth, they should have an idea of what to have the employees working on without the run around.

    I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Depending on who you are working with (like any job) it can be awesome and fun. I have personally learned a lot in a short amount if time and continue to learn more that I know I can take to other jobs and use.

    Cons

    As with any place it's numbers driven. Training for employees could overall be better as I've had a lot of new hires feel overwhelmed being just thrown into a job. Also invest more engagement time for employees it's a craft store customers want people who can really help them and have fun with it.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time in your people and chances are they will go the extra mile for you.
