    I have been working at Michaels Stores as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    You can build retail, marketing, and corporate experiences.

    Cons

    - High politics between co-workers, managers, departments
    - Combined 3 people jobs into 1 position= working through lunch hour, staying late, over time hours on the weekend, no time to take compensation hours or vacation
    - At least 3 meetings on one day
    - Gossip between women. (90% of this company is women)
    - Managers who does not have power or knowledge of about the job move up to higher positions
    - Miscommunications, no communication between vendors, different departments and corporate.
