The company is offering its seasonal team members competitive wages, flexible hours, and a 30% discount on its products. Employees also stand the chance of turning their jobs into long-term opportunities, going from seasonal positions to store management and corporate team roles. Last year, Michaels converted 50% of its seasonal in-store positions into regular roles following the holidays.
To recruit talent, the retailer plans to host a seasonal hiring event across all U.S. and Canadian stores on Saturday, September 17, 2022, from 12 pm to 4 pm local time. Candidates can apply in advance online or in person during in-store events where interviews for qualified candidates will also occur.
“Everything we do is for our Makers, and our Seasonal Team Members are integral to this mission,” said Chief Operating Officer Joe Venezia.
“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.”
