Assistant Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Virginia Beach, VA

Negative Experience
Average Interview

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.

    Application

    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...

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (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.
