    I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I can no longer think of any.

    Cons

    No sense of American pride and most of the products are imported from China. Difficult productivity standards in the Distribution network. Frequent mandatory overtime and little opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the people that keep this business going.

    I worked at Michaels Stores full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The most enjoyable part of employment here is those you work with. I had some fun with the people I shared the floor with. It's easier to handle a stressful day when there are others to endure it with who understand. I received a fair amount of respect for my attitude, professionalism, and effort. If you like arts, crafts, and diving into seasons (fall and Christmas in particular) months ahead of their actual arrival, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    It's retail....enough said.
    If you're willing to try and forge a career in this field, this is as good a place as any.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good employees will only remain so as long as there is some level of appreciation shown.
