    Interview Details

    I interviewed twice for this position. The first interview was very basic. They asked about my education, experience, goals, etc. The waiting period was long though. It was a week and a half before I heard anything. The second interview was filling out paperwork, negotiating pay, etc.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Michaels Stores in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied online as I was moving to the area. I was called back within a few days by the store manager, and we had a quick phone interview going over the positions that were available, location, and my experience. During that call we scheduled a face to face interview for the following week. Was met promptly on time for the face to face. Manager was extremely pleasant - did not ask a lot of questions, was mostly just discussion about what the position required.

    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate for $2 more per hour than I was offered based on my current pay rate from the company I was working for at the time, and based on my experience - I already had 10 years of management experience coming into the position.

    Interview Details

    My interview went well, and I'd have taken the job if I thought I could have done it justice. But it was clear that the home office is too corporate and rigid to accept the kind of change that's needed to make the e-commerce side of the business take off.

    • How would I choose to use Michael's crafting supplies to "personalize" my cubicle for (some kind of contest/event they had each year)?   View Answer
