    I have been working at Michaels Stores part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fun products, efficient walkie talkie system, breaks

    Cons

    The store had to cut hours due to not achieving daily sales goals, so everyone's hours got cut. Due to the skeleton crew during the hours that I did work, it was very hard to take care of the customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bag check should be prior to clocking out. Cumulatively, employees spend hours waiting to get their bag checked before leaving.
