I have been working at Michaels Stores full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

It's an inspiring place to work. You're constantly interacting with creative people that want to talk about their projects.

Cons

The has been company wide changes made and there are alot of employees that are very resistant. That same group seems to do quite a bit of gossiping about any newly hired folks. Claiming that these new co-workers stole their jobs.

Advice to Management

Communicate your goals clearly with fellow members of management. Otherwise they end up looking silly and uninformed.

    I worked at Michaels Stores full-time (More than a 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 Management

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