    Front End Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Michaels.

    Interview

    Incredibly easy interview process. Basic questions, more about availability and what I wanted to be (cashier or warehouse) than anything else. Was told I had the job that day. Did a background check at home/online, never drug tested. Very easy process.

    Interview

    I think that my experience when I was interviewing for this position (cashier / sales associate) was great! I enjoyed the interview process. In addition, I also think that the interviewer was very kind and welcoming.

    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lincoln, NE

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Michaels (Lincoln, NE) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Not so great Bed-side manner in the Interviewer at the North Store. Very unwelcoming.
    I'd highly recommend the South Store should you apply. As a guest and potential employee it's very disrespectful to have a potential employer already assuming things about you before you even get interviewed. Prodded forefully too much on previous job and already had a prior option of me. (This is a form of discrimination and there are laws against this) . The laws states that you can't discriminate even in an pre-interview to interview setting. I will not shop at this location going forwards.

    Interview Questions

    • Didn't give me enough time to interview and tired to be over-controlling and lied to me about hiring shortly before ending (lasted only about 10 mins) It wasn't an interview it was more like an actual witch-hunt. Then to pretend she didn't care about me by lying that she wasn't hiring at the end (it lead me to believe the store was huge in turnover because of this person). And if I was too be considered down the road I wouldn't accept.I Love Michaels as a store. Not a great store to work for now after this experience.   1 Answer

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I knew I wasn’t getting the position once the interviewed started. I’m bilingual in NJ area and the interviewer asked why is speaking Spanish necessary for this position. The interviewer had no knowledge of NJ Passaic county where majority of customers are Hispanic. Twice I got passed over a position and they hired someone else not in the company. It was a racial interview from the beginning.

    Merchandising Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Michaels (Irving, TX) in December 2019.

    Interview

    They came to my University, I did a soft-interview onsite the campus than got a follow-up interview at their HQ office, in which I interviewed with 3 different members of their merchandising/ product category managers. It was a pretty tough interview, every interview was 30mins each, and every interviewer was very serious, except the last one so it was kinda hard to feel relaxed and welcome.

    Planning and Allocation Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Michaels (Irving, TX) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Sat down for an interview in a really casual setting, not at a table but instead at swivel desks. I was meeting with three different managers in succession. After some time, the next manager would walk in, interrupting the previous session. It would be a lot of the same basic questions. It felt pretty rushed with the in-&-out of the previous Managers and with their banter in-between. I didn't feel like it was the best way to process an Interview.
