    Interview

    Always be sure to dress appropriately. You do not have to dress up like you are going to a wedding, but do not wear jeans and a t-shirt to any interview. I walked in with a friendly smile and a polite hello, then sat calmly and answered all questions asked of me.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Michaels Stores.

    Interview

    I actually applied in July and got hired in September that is also including the time of the background check which I believe took 2 weeks. I had 2 interviews one with the store manager then another with the operations manager. It was simple and brief, I was basically hired on spot. I didn't come in for any formal training, my first day was on a busy Sunday and I was forced to learn quick.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Michaels Stores (Skokie, IL) in April 2014.

    Interview

    They called and asked that I come in for an interview. When I went in, they asked a few questions and then went on to what my duties would be and all the details as if I were already hired. I was basically hired without knowledge of being hired. There was no, "would you like this position," or "we would love for you to join our team." It was rushed.

    Interview

    I did an online assessment that had a lot of personality questions and received a call within a few days to talk to the hiring manager. The interview was scheduled for the next week. I thought the experience was pretty pleasant overall. The woman doing the interview was polite, but because I didn't have too much experience I could not negotiate.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Michaels Stores in April 2012.

    Interview

    They have this little sheet that they ask questions off of most of it was typical but the person interviewing me was extremely nosy and liked putting people on the spot.

    I came on time for my interview but the person they had lined up before me was late (wandering around the store for 40 minutes and didn't tell anybody he was there to be interviewed) so I had to go wait around for 20 minutes so he could have his interview first which really made me feel like not even coming back for my interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Her:"Oh why can't you work Sundays?"
      Me: "I go to church"
      Her: "Oh! what religion are you?" (YOU DON'T ASK PEOPLE THAT)
      Me: ".....I'm a Jehovah's Witness"
      Her: "I have a friend who's a Jehovah!" (If she legitimately had a friend who was in my religion she would know that is an ignorant thing to say)
      Me: "Oh.. cool"

      Her: "So since you're "one of them" can you still touch our seasonal stuff since it'll be Christmas, Halloween and Easter?"
      Me: "Yeah, I have no problem with those holidays, I just don't celebrate them".
      Her: "Oh okay then"

    Negotiation

    I told her I wanted to make at least $10.50 but she said no and gave me minimum wage ($9.90 at the time).

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Michaels Stores.

    Interview

    Filled an online application which was fairly easy - a lot of personality questions (strongly agree, disagree, etc.). I got a call within the next week if I'm still interested in the position (which I did) and if I would like to schedule an interview two days after. Interview was very nice, manager was friendly, very interested in me (I'm from Europe, moved to the US couple of months ago). Standard questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Michaels Stores in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied a total of three times in the past year and didn't get a call back till my last try. I applied at the beginning of September and got called back in the beginning of October. I think the fact that they're hiring seasonal workers around this time helped me get an interview. They called on a Friday and told me the interview was the following Monday. They don't tell you that the interview is a group interview but thats what it'll be most likely, especially when they are trying to a hire a lot of new workers. The whole interview was really informal, it seemed more like the manager was just trying to get to know us and told us what our job would entail. I really loved it because they emphasized that the job was temporary, so we weren't expected to have high hopes, but they ensured that they do offer a high number of seasonal employees work after the period has ended (The first week of January). They said they would call back in three days, since they were only doing interviews that day. When the third day came around I didn't get a call, but decided I'd wait till the next day, Friday, to ask about the job, but they called Friday and hired me the job. I attended orientation the following week. The actual application process is tedious and long but once you get an interview it goes by really fast.

    Interview Questions

    • We were only asked to tell them about ourselves (this consisted of basics like name, what college you were attending, what your goals were) and also if you had any questions for them, which is always recommended you do.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. They tell you during the interview the conditions of the hiring and it's minimum wage, which here in CA is $9/hr.
