Seasonal Cashier Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Michaels Stores in October 2014.

Interview Details

Applied online after a newspaper ad got passed around encouraging people to apply for seasonal positions. After about 2-3 weeks I got a call from my local store's hiring department asking if I was still interested, and if the hours I said I was available for were still accurate. I said they were, and was invited to come in for an interview a few days later. If I could have every single job interview I'll ever have to do go like it did, I'll die happy. I was sat in a small back room with two employees and it was more casual than I was expecting, very warm and friendly people. I mentioned all the crafting hobbies I have and they seemed very interested in that. 20-ish minutes later I was done, and literally three hours later I got a call back offering a position, which I accepted.

    The hiring process started online. I filled out an application on their website and was called in for an interview within the next week or so. I was then asked a few questions and told about the uniform expectations. I was then offered a job and told when to come in. It was a simple process.

    • I think the most difficult question was what to do if you're uncomfortable with a manager as it was a manager asking the question.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Applied online through snagajob and was called the next day for an interview. I arrived early and ended up sitting there for a while. Once the interview started most of the questions were "name a time when..." questions which I had a hard time coming up with answers. I thought I did badly but was called an hour later and offered the position.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Michaels Stores in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was initially contacted by phone. Set up an interview for the next day, I went into the interview confident that I had just aced the interview I had set up and completed with another company and acted as if I didn't need the job (and I did, desperately). I chatted with the store manager and ended up feeling as if I wasn't going to get the job because she did not actually ask any interview questions. I receieved a phone call a day later, in the late evening and she asked me if I was willing to take the job then set me up with an orientation for a seasonal position (which later turned into an official position). I accepted and the whole process took maybe a week and a half.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Michaels Stores in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    There was just the one 1:1 interview. The AM called and scheduled it for a couple days from then. The interview itself took about half an hour. The AM said she was definitely hiring me as long as the background check came back clean and would call me the next day to confirm. She didn't call the next day, so I waited and ended up having to call every day for almost the next week before I got ahold of her. I was then told I had the job and told when to come in for training.
