Sales Floor Associate Interview

Sales Floor Associate
Las Vegas, NV

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Michaels Stores in June 2014.

Interview Details – I first applied online and waited a week. The hiring manager gave me an interview as soon as I called. About 2 weeks in, I finished my interview and the hiring manager recommended me to the store manager. She showed me the Assistant store manager and said that the store manager would either 1. Call me to get a background check or 2. Call me to go for a second round of interviews. I waited 2 weeks after the interview and finally called back the store. The hiring manager said that the store manager was putting in background tests and would receive the results soon. (Manager never contacted me after interview) I actually got a call/job offer the following day about an hour after.

Interview Question – Questions are very standard.
They will ask you to tell you about yourself so prepare!
I'm currently in high school so I had to relate all of the answers back to my clubs and such.
Some questions include
1. Tell me about a time when a manager wanted you to do something a different way, but you knew it was inefficient.
2. Tell me about a time you went above and beyond in "something"
3. Tell me a time you dealt with a difficult customer.
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – none

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Michaels Stores in March 2013.

Interview Details – I went in for a an interview today. Yes, I was very nervous but there wasn't a reason to be. I had asked someone working in framing and she kindly took me to where the interview was going to take place. I met the regional Manager and the two lovely ladies who were going to interview me. We had a short conversation before they asked me why I was applying at Michaels and if I enjoyed arts and crafts. They then discussed where I would be a best fit in and asked if I was ok with this position. I will go in for orientation soon and start training.
