Cashier
Annapolis, MD

I applied online - interviewed at Michaels Stores in July 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online and received a phone call a few weeks later to set up an interview. Got interviewed the next day. I got there early and was taken straight into an office. The guy was super cool. I practiced answering a bunch of questions for no reason lol He only asked me about my previous job and then told me everything about the job (how much i will get paid, uniforms, things i would have to do as a cashier, ect) He kept saying i would most likely get the job. We then started talking about my college (me and his son go to the same college) and asked if i played any sports. The interview was only about 10-15 min. He basically told me i got the job and that he will call me next week to tell me when orientation will be! Easiest interview ever!

Negotiation Details – I liked the wage he gave me

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Michaels Stores in October 2013.

Interview Details – I received a call from the store 2 days after applying which I was unable to answer. They did not leave a message, so I called them back a couple days later and had an interview set up within 2 days. The interview was very quick and laid back. I was asked about what I had put on my application and told what hours they had available and what the pay would be. No other questions were asked. The next day I got a call offering me the job, and I began working the day after.

Interview Question – None. I was only asked about my background information that I had put on my application.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation.

Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Michaels Stores in June 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online through snagajob and got called in for an interview a couple of weeks later. I applied for a cashier position at one store, but was told that, since my availability was relatively open, I would be hired to set up a new store and, when that was done, I may or may not be asked to stay. The interview was very informal. I was asked maybe three questions and told to "just come back tomorrow" for training. It all took about five minutes.

Cashier
Huntington, WV

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Michaels Stores in August 2012.

Interview Details – Quite a long on-line application. Takes a while to hear anything back, Interview was quick and perfunctory. If you can pass the application process and seem minimally responsible you can get the job. Showing up on-time for your shift is paramount.

Interview Question – None. I was immediately offered the position.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiating at the entry level position.
