    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
