    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Michaels Stores.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plover, WI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plover, WI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Michaels Stores.

    Interview Details

    The application process included a ridiculous intelligence/skills test that seems to have no relevance to the position. After the application was submitted, they called the next day to set up an interview.

    There were two interviews. The first interview took place with one of the customer experience managers and was really easy. These were just the common questions like why do you want to work here etc. and experience based questions.

    The second interview was with the store manager a week or so later. These were more experience based questions and questions on work ethic. Again fairly easy and simple. Job was offered at the second interview towards the end.

    Had to come in a third time to fill out paperwork and do a short safety training session.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • I didn't really get asked that many questions, which I found to be a little strange   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Michaels Stores.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on a Thursday and received a call the following Monday to set up an interview. The interview was scheduled for Wednesday and I was told I would basically have the job and they would call me back after the background check. Received the call Friday and started the following Monday.

    Interview Questions
    • They literally did not ask me any interview questions, other than, "I assume you're a self-starter, right?" Otherwise the assistant manager just talked to me about her personal life.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not try to negotiate a pay and wish I had. I did not realize how many tasks the job entailed until I actually started, and quickly realized that I should have been getting paid much more.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Michaels Stores in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, got a call about a week later to set up an interview the next day. I came in and met with the manager in the Michael's classroom expecting to answer basic interview questions, but instead I just got asked about my availability. She then mentioned the job description and said the job was mine. (I had to tell her I needed time to think about accepting it.) I was the one that had to strike up questions about hours, holiday scheduling, training, etc. I got their 15 min early for the interview and left about 15-20 min. later. Not a difficult interview at all. If you want it, you can get it. It's just a matter of liking how their hours available and scheduling is like.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    I actually haven't accepted or declined yet, still thinking it over. Reason being is that they offer $7.50/hr (non-negotiable). I wanted something with a little bit higher pay, but I do like the flexible hours and laid-back atmosphere...

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Michaels Stores in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I arrived early for the interview and was finally seen almost forty minutes after it was scheduled to start. Once in the office, I made it through a very awkward conversation with the manager and was offered the job the next day via phone call. The manager felt uninterested in doing the interview and I definitely regretted accepting the job after this initial experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Explain a time I had to upsell, a time I had to overcome a difficult situation, and what I'm best at. Also, do I craft and if so, what?   Answer Question
