Michaels is an amazing place to work and grow! I began my career with Michaels almost 20 years ago, starting as a Framing Department Manager and crafting my career into a District Manager for the past 14 years. I have been fortunate to have so many incredible leaders and mentors that helped me achieve my career goals, and forge relationships with such truly talented individuals at Michaels. I feel blessed to be able to continue in those footsteps and help develop the next level of leaders for our organization and take us to the next level!

-Kristina Kidder-Koch
Support Centre Team Member

If anyone told me my high school job would turn into a prosperous career, I would have told them they were crazy! But here I am, 25 years later, doing what I love to do... lead and develop people to achieve amazing things! I grew up with Michaels, both professionally and personally. This place has seen me though graduations, breakups, marriage, the birth of my three little humans, and many more of life's ups and downs. Michaels is more than a job. It is a place to make connections. To make friendships. To make people happy. To make other's lives sparkle with glitter! Do things get hectic? Sure they do. But at the end of each day, I can say I've made a small difference in the lives of those I've helped, those I've developed, and those I've made smile!

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.

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 Canada) 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.

Your career, made by you

We believe that internships cultivate a stronger business. Our interns are valuable contributors on challenging and immersive projects that directly impact our success.
