Michaels Hiring For The Holidays

Michaels said it will hire approximately 15,000 seasonal positions across its U.S. and Canada stores and distribution centers in preparation for the 2019 holiday season.

The company will host a national seasonal hiring event in more than 1,250 stores across the country on Saturday, September 7 from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Seasonal team members benefit from competitive wages, flexible hours and a 30% discount, the company said.

Last year, Michaels said it hired more than 40% of seasonal in-store positions into regular roles following the holidays, including over 30% of their distribution center seasonal team members and over 40% of Artistree’s seasonal staff.

“We are proud to be designated a Great Place to Work for the second year in a row as we look to hire additional staff for the upcoming holiday season,” said Holly Shaskey-Platek, svp/human resources, Michaels. “The holidays are an important time of the year for customers and team members alike. Whether you are gift-making or gift-giving our talented team members are ready to help with inspiration, project ideas and make sure your holiday shopping experience is meaningful and fun.”
