I worked at Michaels Stores part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great people to work with. Better employee discount now. Good craft supplies available. Great store manager. pretty flexible with time-off requests sometimes.

Cons

Few hours/pay rate. Little room for advancement/full-time hours. Lots of turn around. You are needed to wear many hats.

Advice to Management

Back up not over your store managers.
Appreciate your good employees that you have....not when they've left.

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

    Pros

    You get a discount and it's a fun environment. You talk to lot of artistic and nice people. The managers are nice and they always give you a 15 minute break.

    Cons

    To many small things to put away. Christmas time is a very difficult time because there is so many little small detailed things that need to be restocked.


  2. "It once was a nice company to work for. It changedd"

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

    Pros

    I did get quite a good bit of experience in customer service during my 7 years there. I did enjoy working with the employees, who shared a love of crafting

    Cons

    They would not provide enough staff to get anything done. A lot of times things wouldn't be completed as efficiently as they could have been due to lack of staff. The pay was not enough to compensate having to do as much work as they wanted you to do.

    Advice to Management

    I believe they need to spend more money on scheduling. It seemed as though they tried to cut costs at every corner they could find.
