I started with Michaels as a seasonal sales associate while finishing my college degree. Fast-forward 15 years, and I am proud to say that I have made a career with Michaels. From store Team Member to framing trainer to HR professional, every role I’ve taken has challenged me. The continuous support received from our leaders over the years is something you don’t often find. With Michaels, I am not just a number: I am a part of an organization that betters itself, its customers and the communities it serves. I am proud to be a Maker.

-Sara Creagan Wysocki
Support Center Team Member

I have grown up in this company and seen many changes over the years. Never did I think 30 years ago that I would still be at the same company and still enjoying my job! Our Team Members really give our store its personality.

Store Manager

Personal expression, made by you

In 2019, we launched Michaels Resource Groups (MRG). These voluntary, Team Member–led groups raise awareness around diversity and inclusion, support Team Member engagement and development, support our Great Place to Work® initiative and drive business growth.

A real difference, made by you

At Michaels, we’re dedicated to creating, making and having fun. Classes and groups at local stores and online projects give back to our Makers.

Being a part of Boys & Girls Clubs locally (and nationally at Boys & Girls Clubs of America) means we can contribute toward supporting and strengthening our communities.

Internally, we support an initiative for Michaels employees called Michaels Cares. No matter the job title, we’re here for one another when crisis arises. We’ve helped more than 3,200 Team Members with over $3 million in employee-funded grants.
