    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Michaels Stores in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a phone call a few days later asking to set up an interview. When I got to the store I told an employee that I was here for an interview and she notified the manager. After the manager came back in the store from her break ( I had to wait 10 minutes) she admitted that she forgot my name, despite being the only interview that day. I was lead to the back room, and she looked over my application. She basically just talked about how she liked doing floral crafts and asked about my availability. The interview was interrupted by an employee calling in to cancel her shift, and then the manager trash talked the employee in front of me for calling off.

    Around 15 mins with a store manager and was at the store. I made out an application did this on line. I was very comfortable and was able to do it after my normal school hours so I felt that they would be very accommodating.
