    Utter crap. No one uses it.

    They have a fund for employees in need. But it needs to be a major catastrophe, or the loss of a spouse or relative

    There is a program that helps out employees in hard times as in homeless or hopelessness, families in need I think its called.

    Everyone I know who has applied for assistance has been denied. Something very tragic or disastrous must have to happen to be approved.

    The Michael's Cares program did not help me when I needed it. There was no response or answer given from them as to why. I have worked with the company for nearly 6 years and have donated and raised money for the Michael's Cares Program every year. I will no longer support this.

    They do offer them. We do a yearly fundraiser among employees.

    Michaels Cares is an EAP that works entirely on donations. Basically if you experience some sort of catastrophe, you send in an application for assistance, and a team of people will review it and send you a check if you qualify! An associate from our store lost a ton of stuff in a flood, and Michaels cares sent her $1000 to help with the initial cleanup! It is a great program!

    There was almost no training, just kind of a "good luck" as they threw you into your first day at work.

    You have the option to receive discounted rates on certain products, I have not personally used it but other co-workers have.
