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

    Pros

    It was really fun to work here, and some of the managers were great at their job, which made things a lot easier. The pay was average, and it was a great temporary job for while I was at school

    Cons

    If you work at a store with bad managers, the experience is a lot worse. There's definitely a tendency to promote people based on if they're personal friends of the managers, as opposed to who does the best job. We're also taught to stick by rigid rules for things like coupons, sales, etc., and if a customer tries to argue with us and asks to speak with management, they give them the lower price anyways. That kind of behavior undermines all the staff and makes us feel like we shouldn't even bother trying to enforce the rules in the first place.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the store-level management and assistant management is up to par. Consider getting involved with hiring decisions at the store level when it comes to higher-up positions like that.
