    They lowball the first offer. Always negotiate the salary and don't be afraid to ask what you are really worth.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Michaels Stores in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    District HR called to set up the phone interview. She was very polite and friendly. She asked about the current volume the store I worked for did, what were my greatest strengths and weaknesses, why I was interested in leaving the company, what was I looking for in a new company, what did I know about them, had I shopped there before, and then asked me what questions I had. The hardest question is always what is your greatest weakness. When we talked money, it was obvious that I made far too much in salary to be considered.
