    IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irving, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Michaels (Irving, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview, as with most interviews, consisted of a set of interviewers. Some directly related to the opportunity that I interviewed for and some peer-level. All of the interviewers, in my opinion, made sense to be on the panel.

    Part Time Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greece, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Michaels (Greece, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call from them a few days later. The manager was really friendly and nice and asked very basic interview questions, as well as a few of the questions on the online application. After the interview, the manager said that they would send an email requesting a background check, and after calling several times, I gave up trying to get the job. (I called about 5 times, asking for them to resend the email, etc., checked spam and everything, never receiving it. I gave up after a while because I didn't want to be that person.)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Michaels (Greenwood, MS) in July 2015.

    Process was easy. Applied online and about a week later got a call to come in for an interview on Tuesday. Was told I would get a call on that following Friday. But I called them instead. Was told he would call me back due to still interviewing people. Received a call 3 days later with job offer. Went that Friday and signed papers. But due computer problems couldn't find out what my salary would be. But I start Monday. So excited.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Michaels (Chicago, IL) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted an on-line application... After a few weeks I received an e-mail requesting a phone interview . The phone interview took place and they asked me to submit by resume by a certain date. I did so well within that time frame and sent a voicemail stating that it had been sent as I instructed. I never received a response to the voicemail nor the e-mail I sent. EXTREMELY UNPROFESSIONAL!!!! I was stunned at MICHAELS...

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Worth, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Michaels (Fort Worth, TX) in August 2011.

    Interview

    You have to turn in a letter of interest along with a resume. Then you are at some point given an interview time. I was at work when I was told that my interview would be the next morning. When I gave my letter of interest I was told nothing. About a week before the interview even though I did not know the exact date the manager handed me some papers and said to read them. That was it. I did ask another manager what I should know because there was nothing in the papers I was given to let me know how to prepare for the interview. The papers only showed what modules you would be learning when hired.

    Interview Questions

    • The first question was "If you are not hired for this position will you quit?"   2 Answers

    Interview

    Very Pleasant ,interesting, however hiring DM left company shortly after and then round robin of DM's started. Very confusing as each one had their priorities. Not very consistent, many changes.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions. They have a set of questions they ask,standard cookie cutter, and unless DM decides to have a real conversation, it would be difficult to assess actual abilities.   Answer Question
