    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Michaels Stores (York, PA).

    Interview

    I only had one, 15 minute interview before I was hired. The hiring manager/store manager was absolutely fantastic, and felt like she was actually listening to you, not just hurrying off to do something else.

    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Michaels Stores (Bellevue, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process took about 2 weeks. I came in a week after applying online, introduced myself and made sure I displayed a positive demeanor throughout the interview. For the majority of the interview, which took about 15 minutes, the interviewer kept going on about how they really push their employees to collect emails from their customers and if they did not collect a certain amount of emails, they would fire the employees. The interviewer overall was not very friendly with me and I had to call back after three to four business days since she did not contact me back within the given time frame, whether it was positive or negative feedback. When I called back, I received much less kindness than I did in the interview. The interviewer told me that I did not seem like a happy person, which was ironic considering that the interviewer was not friendly from the start and when I came into the interview that day, most of the employees did not display the friendliness or positiveness she claimed to be pushed upon the employees. The interviewer offered a 30 day trial, but I declined that offer since these reasons made it very clear to me that I did not want to work there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Michaels Stores (Burnsville, MN).

    Interview

    The interview was very easy, with minimal questions that where general. It was one on one with the store manager who basically explained what the job tasks involved. The whole interview itself lasted about thirty minutes of the manager talking about the job and her pet peeves. The job was offered at the end of the interview and asked when I could come back in to fill out paperwork and go through training.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Michaels Stores.

    Interview

    The interviewing process was very easy. The store I applied at was hiring at the time so my friend, who was already working there, referred me. Because I had no previous work experience, they asked me about my education and other questions about my personality. I was offered the job on the spot.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Michaels Stores.

    Interview

    I went in for a super simple group interview. Then the manager brought us in one by one to get a good grasp on us individually. It seemed like they really needed spots filed and 4 out of the 5 of us got jobs.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Michaels Stores.

    Interview

    I actually got to speak to two of the store managers, they were very nice, super polite. From what I've heard neither one of these managers works there any more, its quite a shame. I was rather nervous for the interview, but it took about 15 minutes and got called in to start training about a couple of days after.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Michaels Stores (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    Fairly easy, but a long process. A few in person and two phone interviews. The process ended with a 2 hour store tour with a current manager. It would have been very upsetting to go through this lengthy process and not receive an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Michaels Stores (Tustin, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    You apply online. I received a call about half a month after I applied. I had a quick phone interview then was asked to come in for an official one. I walked into the store, told the cashier there that I was there for an interview. They introduced me to the manager of human affairs who called the assistant manager over. He asked me what brought me to michaels, and what position I would prefer. He then described the company, what their goals are, said I basically had the job and have a nice day. Easiest interview I've ever had. Probably because they are hugely understaffed right now because of summer vacation.
