    I worked at Michaels Stores part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere if you have any art interests

    Cons

    managers weren't always attune with student worker's scheduling needs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    So glad you got rid of the black and khaki uniform! It did not represent the creativity of a craft store.

    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.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
