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.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Conyers, GA

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Michaels Stores.

Interview Details – I applied online on the Michaels website during the holiday season. I received a phone call requesting an interview 2 days later. We scheduled it for the afternoon and I went in a few days later. I interviewed with the manager and it was very laid back. Just basic questions such as "Why do you want to work here?" "Why do you think you would be a good fit for us?" Nothing difficult. It was a very laid back interview. She asked me about my previous job experience and asked me to explain my duties in those positions. The whole interview took about 20 minutes. Of course for the last 5-10 minutes was us just chatting and joking around.

Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

Sales Associate/Cashier
Brandon, FL

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Michaels Stores in April 2012.

Interview Details – Applied online and was contacted by phone to schedule a face to face interview. Met in the classroom with the manager and had a very laid back interview during which I was very comfortable speaking about both my job experiences and my artistic experiences. Management looks for reasonably confident individuals. Be thorough about your past experiences, especially details of leadership positions and dealing with difficult customers. Exceptional communication skills and previous experience with successfully collecting emails is a huge plus.

Interview Question – Give an example from your previous work experience in which you dealt with a difficult customer and was unsuccessful. How did you deal with it? Give an example of a difficult situation with a customer in which you were successful.   Answer Question

Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

Seasonal Sales Associate
Aurora, CO

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Michaels Stores in November 2010.

Interview Details – I was called for an interview just a day after I submitted my application. I was interviewed by the store manager at the time. Upon my arrival at the store for my interview, I had to ask an associate where to go. They were very pleasant and helped me right away. They led me to the office, where the store manager was waiting for me. I immediately liked him because he was very laid back. He asked a couple of questions and then hired me on the spot. Unfortunately, it was two weeks before I actually started working.

Interview Question – I'm going to need you to smile a lot. Think you can do that?   View Answer

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Brewster, NY

I applied online and interviewed at Michaels Stores.

Interview Details – First I had to wait around for the interviewer for quite some time after the scheduled appointment. Then the interview was a whole boatload of questions nearly identical to the ones in the online app. Took about an hour. Halfway through the interview I started getting the feeling that this wasn't the place for me - based on the people working and the overall atmosphere of the store.

Interview Question – As I said, they were all pretty much the same questions as on the application. The interview seemed like a total waste of time.   Answer Question
