Assistant Store Manager Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Troy, MI) in June 2017.

Interview

Worst company I have ever dealt with! I applied for assistant store manager and got a call back about a week after doing so. The store manager spoke with me for a few minutes before saying she'd love to meet me in person. We set up a time the following week. When I came in for the interview, I spoke with a different woman (the current ASM). She told me that the ASM position was taken but that I would definitely be a good candidate for the Operations Manager position. I was surprised, but willing to take this different position. The interview was pretty standard. It went well enough that the ASM told me I should definitely put in my two weeks notice, so I did. A few days later, I got a call from the store manager and she told me that she would love to have me on board, I just need to finish the background check. Fast forward another week, the background check clears and I get a call back. The store manager tells me that all the management positions have been filled; now they're just looking for cashiers. They asked me to put in my two weeks from my FULL TIME MANAGEMENT position for cashiering? Bait-and-switch company -- absolutely deplorable.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Virginia Beach, VA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I went through 3 different interviews (in person) at the local store. I met with the manager, another assistant manager and then the regional manager. I was pretty much told the third meeting with the regional manager was a formality and I was a perfect fit for the job. I completed the third interview and was never contacted again at all. Very unprofessional process.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Michaels Stores.

    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

    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...
