Michaels is planning for the holiday season and will hire 15,000 seasonal positions across its stores and distribution centers in the U.S. and Canada.

The arts and crafts superstore will host a seasonal hiring event in all U.S. and Canadian stores on Saturday, September 17, from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. local time. Candidates are welcome to apply in advance online, or in person during the in-store events where interviews for qualified candidates will also take place.

“Everything we do is for our makers, and our seasonal team members are integral to this mission,” said Joe Venezia, executive vice president, Store and Chief Operating Officer. “We know there’s no more important time than the holidays to give all makers a single destination for all of the inspiration, supplies, componentry, décor and gifts they need to celebrate the season, and we’re ready to knock it out of the park this year.”

Michaels seasonal team members benefit from competitive wages, flexible hours and a 30% discoun. Last year, Michaels converted more than 50% of seasonal in-store positions into regular roles following the holidays. Many of these team members go on to become members of our store management or corporate teams, making these seasonal roles a fantastic long-term opportunity for personal and professional growth
