I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Michaels Stores.
Interview Details –
I applied online, and the next day I was called to set up an interview. The interview was the following week. The Replenishment Manager interviewed me in the classroom, asked a few questions. "Tell me about yourself" "Tell me about the time you had to deal with a difficult customer."
I got the idea that there was a high turnover rate after I asked about the size of the replenishment team (and the person who was hired with me quit after a week.) I got hired on the spot, but the hiring process was very annoying being that the store manager didn't know what they were doing. Messed my information up and took weeks for it to fix. Didn't tell me much of anything about the store, their policies, what the job really entailed, etc.. but was expected to have known all of this by my first day at work.

Interview Details – A manager called me and left a message (wanted to interview me) on my cell. I called them back at least twice and was told by an employee that they would give the manager my name and number and that I would be contacted shortly. I never heard back from the manager and therefore didn't even get to go to the interview. I even tried going into the store to speak with the manager and the employees were rude and told me to just call again.
Interview Question – I never got an interview, but the skills test/application was very tedious. I was honestly surprised that anyone could pass it. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Michaels Stores in August 2013.
Interview Details –
I applied online and was called for an interview three days later. The store manager asked me one question and then talked about the history of Michaels Stores and what the position would entail. He didn't turn his headset off so throughout the interview he would stop talking or interrupt me to answer a question on the headset. He asked if I would be able to start the following week and said I would hear from him within three days.
The entire process took about ten minutes. The manager seemed incredibly cocky, from his refusal to turn the headset off to his gushing about how great his store was. He often talked over me or seemed like he wasn't really listening.
Interview Question – The only question I was asked was why I wanted to work at Michaels. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I assumed I had gotten the job when he asked if I could start the next week. After a week with no call, I tried contacting him and could not get a hold of him. About a month later I received a call offering me the job, but I had decided it was not an environment I wanted to work in.
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Michaels Stores in August 2013.
Interview Details – I applied online and was called for an interview about two weeks later. The interview went wonderfully and the hiring manager said I would most likely be the person he hired. We even talked about where he'd be putting me. He didn't call me when he said he would, and when I tried to call him he was difficult to get a hold of. Eventually, when I called a second time (over a week after my interview), he said that they'd keep my application and probably hire me later in the year. Needless to say, I don't expect to actually be contacted for a job.
Interview Question – They really want people who are super into arts and crafts. Over the last few years, my productivity in arts and crafts have waned in favor of other pursuits, so I had to exaggerate a bit. Answer Question
I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Michaels Stores in August 2013.
Interview Details – extended questions on floral processes and knowledge tests, including customer presentation for weddings, funeral work and special occasions. Online Application mandatory for all positions within company , including aptitude test. Once this is passed, in person interviews can happen. My prior work experience in floral design and sales management helped me get the initial interview. I would still recommend to make a person to person introduction at the store you want to apply for a position.
