    Sales Associate/Cashier/Replenishment Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  La Habra, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in La Habra, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Michaels Stores in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was surprised by a group interview, the last time I went (2-4 years ago) they only used to do one on one interviews. So be prepared for that. Also, they will ask everyone different questions, try to stay calm and try to think of multiple ways of answering. Make yourself sound resourceful, I made the mistake of answering too quickly because I was a little nervous. The interviewers try to be friendly and remind you to smile the entire time. Try to avoid saying "Um" "Like" a lot. Good luck!

    Jewelry & Painting Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Palmdale, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palmdale, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. 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.

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

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Michaels Stores.

    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

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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.
