Average Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Houston, TX).

Interview

It was at a job fair to fill multiple locations that were opening in 2008. It was a 1:1 interview process but there were 2 other store managers in the room with other candidates. They asked the same retail interview questions as everyone else.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Salt Lake City, UT) in September 2012.

    Interview

    was ok. People were nice. Questions I feel are mainly to check out your personality. They're the same as everyone asks. You answer them the best you can but they make you feel like they have nothing to do with the job you're interviewing for.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Jacksonville, FL) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I applied online as I was moving to the area. I was called back within a few days by the store manager, and we had a quick phone interview going over the positions that were available, location, and my experience. During that call we scheduled a face to face interview for the following week. Was met promptly on time for the face to face. Manager was extremely pleasant - did not ask a lot of questions, was mostly just discussion about what the position required.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate for $2 more per hour than I was offered based on my current pay rate from the company I was working for at the time, and based on my experience - I already had 10 years of management experience coming into the position.

    Declined Offer

    Interview

    My interview went well, and I'd have taken the job if I thought I could have done it justice. But it was clear that the home office is too corporate and rigid to accept the kind of change that's needed to make the e-commerce side of the business take off.

    Interview Questions

    • How would I choose to use Michael's crafting supplies to "personalize" my cubicle for (some kind of contest/event they had each year)?   1 Answer
