CEM Interview

CEM

I applied online and interviewed at Michaels Stores.

Interview Details – During the time of my interview I was interviewed with about 11 other people for a temporary position to set up and help open a new store. So the interview process was making sure that we filled out all the paper work and that you showed up every day on time.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Michaels Stores in October 2009.

Interview Details – I only had to go through one interview to get the seasonal job I was applying for. It was fairly easy with the basic interview questions being asked. It was a one on one interview with the assistant manager of the store. I got a call a couple days after from her letting me know I got the job and started the following Monday for training.

Cashier Interview

Cashier

I applied online and interviewed at Michaels Stores.

Interview Details – Applied online. Went in to store to talk directly with manager. She said she would contact me in a week. She contacted me, gave me an interview a few days later. The interview asked questions that asked you to reflect on a time when you had to deal with "a customer/incident where this/that occured, and how you handled it". About 10 or 15 questions were like this. They briefly go over your job duties, so I suggest bringing a notepad to take notes.

Interview Question – Describe a situation where you had to manage a project or people involved in a group task?   Answer Question

Department Manager Interview

Department Manager

Interviewed at Michaels Stores

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.

Interview Question – 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
