      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Michaels full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Wonderful oppty to learn and be creative while helping source great products for your company.

      Cons

      Too many politics. You could be saving the company hundreds of thousands of dollars, but if you're not best friends with the right person, or using the "right" vendor- you'll lose your job. Also the Buyers don't have a lot of respect for the people that are sourcing their products for them.

      Advice to Management

      Really look at who you have in management positions & how your own employees work together. The private brand team is treated like vendors even though they work for same company.
