Very Easy Interview

Jewelry & Painting Teacher Interview

Jewelry & Painting Teacher
Palmdale, CA

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

Interview Details – The interview was very easy, and they expect to see some pieces you've made. I got the job easily, but realized there was a catch.

In order to obtain students you must DO YOUR OWN ADVERTISING. This means making posters and hanging them around the store. One girl was very good at it. She had crocheted samples on her posters. This would be ok with me except jewelry crafting is expensive. It was a lot of work to me.

As for training, it is online and takes a little while. Be prepared to print A LOT. But overall fairly easy.

Interview Question – N/A. I got the feeling they were desperate for a teacher.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I did not want to advertise myself.

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

Interview Details – I applied online and within a couple of days they called and scheduled an interview. I was interviewed in a different location than the store I applied to. The interview lasted no more than 10 minutes. It was the standard questions - why do you want to work here, what are your past experiences, etc. It was pretty simple.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Hawthorne, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Michaels Stores in September 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online for Replinishment Associate, but ended up getting hired for Sales/Cashier. I got a call from them a week after I applied and was asked a couple of questions over the phone and then told to come in for an interview a couple days later. It was a group interview with about 10 other people and we were interviewed by the manager and assistant manager. The interview took an hour and then I was told right after the interview that I was hired and was told what I'd be making. The orientation was a week later and that took about 3 hours.
