Working for Michael's craft store was an ok experience, fast pace environment and alright staff.If you're passionate about art and love to be creative, I would suggest that Micheals be the place for you.
Cool stuff in store
A typical day at work will have customers who are artistically gifted buying arts and crafts stuffs for their loved ones. Sometimes it makes me wonder how people have so many beautiful skills.
Free treats some times, 30% employee discount.
The store manager is very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and helpful. Other management can change from time to time, but opportunities to apply for those positions are available to employees looking for advancement. Although I was hired as a cashier, I also had shifts working on the sales floor, instructing birthday parties and kids art camps. On cash shifts it was sometimes stressful because the lines get very long and there often is not enough staff to support it. Other cashier duties included making returns, cleaning, folding a lot of t-shirts and customer service on the phone or to customers in the store. On floor shifts, the main goal is to assist customers while putting away all products from the put away bins and maintaining a clean store by facing/organizing items in every isle. Floor associates are called to cash when backup is needed and sometimes to the custom framing department if they are very busy. As a birthday party and Art camp instructor, you prepare for the events happening that day/weekend by collecting all required materials from the store or the craft cabinet in the classroom. I Normally did two 1hr art camps in the morning with 30mins to prepare and clean in between. Followed by one or two 2hr birthday parties in the afternoon / night with 30min - 1hr to prepare and clean up. It was often very hard to prepare everything and clean in the time given. It would be a much better experience if you could do the parties with a coworker to help with the large number of kids with parents, face paint, as well as prepare and clean up on time.
Fun environment, Store discount, Flexible hours, Great for a student or seasonal worker
Often not enough people scheduled on a shift to support super busy hours, Tasks are repetitive, can be stressful at times

The amount of customers and products were overwhelming during the holidays, but thanks to my coworkers being very friendly with each other during more relaxed times, I felt grounded and motivated to continue chugging through.
I enjoyed working there because the staff and public were always very friendly and I liked seeing all the craft ideas the shoppers had. I liked the fast pace work environment because the day seemed to fly by and you always had something to do.
Great place to work. Managers and co-workers are easy to get along with. Customers are generally pretty nice. Work schedule is flexible. You can book time off as long as you do it at least 2 weeks in advance. Staff discount is great. There are times you won’t get very many hours. Some days are busier than others. A lot of downtime when the store is empty. During night shifts, there’s usually only a cashier and a manager working, but occasionally, there will be a floor person. This makes it hard to manage a whole store.
If you are willing to stand around and scan for 6-8 hours, this job is for you. They make you work a lot (I asked for 15 hours a week as I am in high school and working a second job. I was always given 20-30 on top of my other job which was about 10).
Quite enjoyed the work, but the checkout process is very slow, you must ask for a phone number for the Reward system, which has no rewards at all, and manually type in the dollar amount into the credit system, which allows for numerous mistakes if you have fingers like mine that do not work well on touch screens. They could really speed up the process by removing the Rewards section.
touch screen cash registers and Rewards program

Flexible schedule, nice people
Short shifts 4 hours only
Working at Michael's is basically like not having a job at all. Submitting your availability means absolutely nothing because they decide hours based on your numbers from the rewards program logs. Every time you do a transaction, you need to ask for a phone number and email to see if the customer is a rewards program member. If they say no or aren't a member, it logs in the system. If your analytics aren't high enough for their standards, you don't get hours. The management team suggests multiple ways to "help" you with this, but it's basically lying. You ask people for their phone and email address without specifying why. With any luck, they'll say yes. If they don't, you're never going to work. There's also no real use for the rewards program. It sends people coupons and things sure, but there are no points to save up. Asking for their rewards information has no purpose besides Michael's having a reason to ration hours. But there's not really a point to that either because this particular store never had enough employees for decent coverage anyway. Why? Because they don't decide hours like normal people. To drive the point home further, the person who worked the most at this store was a 17-year-old high school student. He got four days a week because he used the lying method to get the rewards information. This was over senior employees and people like myself trying to make a living. Also, management will just straight-up lie to you. In my interview, I got confirmation that I was being brought on to help with kids parties and the kids club classes because - plus...
