    Certified Custom Framer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Michaels Stores in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    A couple weeks after I applied they contacted me for an interview. I came in a few minutes early and waited another 25. The interview lasted less than five minutes and neither of the two interviewers asked me another question beyond "so tell us a little bit about yourself".

    Apparently the fact that I came in on time and seemed willing and responsible was enough for them, they didn't really need to hear much more. It seemed that they really just want someone who shows up, everything else can be taught.

    At the time I knew someone working at Michaels. She said start with the online application process first. Once I completed the online application. I received an email with date, time, person and phone number to report at interview. Maybe the phone call was considered an interview. Human resource contact by phone. The interview was conducted at the Michaels near Lindburgh train station here in Atlanta Ga. I don't remember the actually address to Michaels at this moment. When I arrived 15 minutes early. Their were others waiting to be interviewed besides myself. Then the associate person said Ms Pate right this way. The interview was brief and to the point. Then on to the next person. It was I felt a good interview over all. I communicated my experiences, I liked her personality.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Michaels Stores.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is very easy. They ask you a little about yourself, ask if you like crafts and if so what kind. Want to know your availability. Might ask you about situations and how you would react but most interviews are around 5-10 minutes and very easy and basic questions.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Michaels Stores in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very short and concise. When I went in for my interview It was basically just the interviewer telling me the job description, what my job would entail, and what kind of personality that would compliment the job (So don't worry about getting grilled or anything). It lasted about 15 to 20 minutes at the most, and was not at all stressful or intimidating.
