I worked at Michaels Stores as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

I love this store and I loved working here the ambiance was right up my alley considering it was a craft store that could easily double as a step-ahead-of-last-resort if one is really trying to avoid having to go to blick's. The work is fast paced but there is room for advancement and benefits, etc.

Cons

It really depends on which one you go to because stock is different depending on where you go and so is management it could be great at one store or just terrible like you won't believe it and well I say read reviews before you go in one and call ahead of time for stock checks because you'll learn a lot more than if you just show up at the store also try using the 'online catalogue' and I put it that way because you cannot place online orders as one would presume.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

New management that has less issues it's okay to have bad days but everyday is a bit much.

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

    Pros

    The employee discount was nice, but did not make up for the various shortcomings of the job. Not much more to say.

    Cons

    Unpleasant management staff that were rude to employees. Not very much training offered.

    Try being more polite to workers.

    Management needs development

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more keen on actual management experience when moving people into those positions
    HR should do more to follow up with new hires to ensure they are transitioning well into the company
