Perfect as a temporary job, mind numbing long term.

Pros

If you have great managers and a great team the work will be easy.

Cons

Your store will more than likely be understaffed and you will work multiple positions. The amount of work that you do will make the wage you're paid feel like a pat on the head.

Advice to Management

Increase payroll so stores are adequately staffed, Replenishment (the backbone of the store) should be paid accordingly, planogram reshuffling should make sense and not feel like a random decision.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, compensation is competitive, lots of opportunity.

    Cons

    Work load versus hours to complete it is sometimes unobtainable and completely ridiculous, no work-life balance.

    Pros

    Corporate environment is fairly relaxed, jeans 5 days a week, and everybody seems to know everybody and people are very friendly. There is very little power-distance between you and your superiors, but business is still business and you are expected to be professional. The experience I gained during my time at Michaels taught me more than I could have ever hoped for, and because they are such a large and well-recognized company, having experience and corporate looks good on a resume.

    Cons

    The cubicles make the physical environment of the offices a little stale, and it can be hard to get used to if you've never worked in an environment like this before. This is also a company that heavily relies on analytics to back up their business decisions, so if you aren't a fan of math or excel, they may not be a good fit for you, but this depends on the position you're applying for.
