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

    Pros

    30% off discount. I had great coworkers. Great place to be if you have art experience already, you'll be vital to the team if you have a well rounded knowledge on the types of arts we sell.

    Cons

    Customers can be awful, just like everywhere else. Typical retail complaints.

    I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time

    Pros

    i have some really cool co-workers. The place it small enough to keep clean but big enough to move around more. i get to meet many different types of pets , we have many different events going on as well.

    Cons

    the pay is not at all good though i would say it's good for high school students or anyone looking for some money but unless your working full time or you are teaching one of the classes you won't b breaking bank
