ONE SET OF VALUES
We hire the brightest, most creative and most talented people from many different backgrounds. And although there are thousands of us, we all share one purpose and one set of values.
We go to work every day to do one thing: Make Creativity Happen. It was true when the first Michaels store opened in 1973 and it's still true today.
We're proud to say that our values aren't just lip service; we all operate by them each day. To establish these values, we put together a team of people from all over the company, and that's what they come up with. We think it's pretty great.
Make People Happy
We're dedicated to making Michaels a fun and supportive place to work, as well as a great place to shop.
Keep It Simple
It sounds easy, but sometimes simple is hard! Nevertheless, most things work best if they aren't complicated.
Innovate & Learn
The world moves quickly, and we aren't looking just to keep up. We strive to think bigger, have the best ideas, move faster and work smarter.
We're committed to giving back to the communities that support us. That's why we partnered with Starlight Children's Foundation® and established Michaels Cares, a charity that serves our Team Members.
We try to be frugal and spend our money in the best possible ways so we can invest in what truly matters.
Do The Right Thing
At Michaels, integrity is of the utmost importance. We try each day to do what's right (not just what's easy) for each other and for our customers.
We take our work seriously, but ourselves? Not. At. All. After all, we sell glitter and googly eyes!
