Benefit Extras & Discounts

Additional Benefits



The EAP is a free and confidential resource available for you and your family — even if you’re not enrolled in a benefit plan through Michaels.

We care about your mental health as much as we care about your physical health, so all full-time Team Members are eligible to receive up to three face-to-face counseling sessions per issue at no charge using the EAP.

The EAP can help you:

  1. Manage stress, money worries and family worries.
  2. Deal with work/life services like childcare, elder care and education services.
  3. Locate resources for adoption, relocating, camps, volunteer opportunities, pets and more.
