    Easy Interview

    Seasonal Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    I applied to a store near my home during the holidays. I specifically wished to work near my home since this would be my second job and I already commute a great deal for my full time job. However, my application was pulled by the store manager, (his own admission) of another store 15 minutes from my home. I wanted the job so when I interviewed with the SM I accepted the position even though it only paid ten cents above minimum wage, ($7.35.) I feel that the manager acted deceitful in pulling my application solely for another store.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Hartford, CT).

    Submit your application online and then wait for a call.
    Once in the interview it is simple and just a few questions. Depending on the manager, you might not even meet them until after you are hired. The current manager rarely meets with his own employees each day, son new hires rarely see him in an interview (conducted by assistant manager)
