    I worked at Michaels Stores part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay was higher than minimum wage- started out at $9.25, after two years I was at $9.48
    Awesome merchandise
    Great coworkers

    Cons

    Not enough workers there- sometimes only 3 people for entire store
    Only given 30 min break for working 8 sometimes 9 hours
    breaks are only given for 6 hr shifts- always scheduled 5 1/2 hrs....
    Hectic- long line, one cashier

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate is corrupt and expect too much without sufficient pay
    No respect for employees that have been there for 5+ years
    Often accused of stealing- cameras installed only to observe hard working employees

    I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My manager was a major reason I enjoyed working at Michael's. he was interesting and funny and made work enjoyable.

    Cons

    It is basically minimum wage. As a member of the replenishment team, we do a lot of work. Some of it is very physical as we are required to build fixtures and continuously bend and walk around the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop taking our hours away just because sales goals were not reached! If people do not come into the store on a certain day, sales are obviously not going to be met. As employees, we cannot help this event and should not suffer because of it. We can only push sales to those actually in the store.
