    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Irving, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview, as with most interviews, consisted of a set of interviewers. Some directly related to the opportunity that I interviewed for and some peer-level. All of the interviewers, in my opinion, made sense to be on the panel.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Michaels Stores.

    Interview

    Called to check the status of my app and ended up scheduling an interview. When I went in for the interview wasn't pressured with a lot of questions didn't even seem like an interview because I was only asked one question really, the rest of the interview felt kind of like a lecture or some sort of orientation, it was very quick though. They made it seem like I was going to get the job and that they was interested by telling me stuff about how they do things around the store and everything but never called me back even after I called to check the status after the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Was very fast around 9 minutes, all the questions I prepared for were never asked but over all was a nice guy. They seemed desperate for help so that might be a factor for such a fast interview .

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Michaels Stores in May 2017.

    Interview

    Retail experience is a must, I believe. I'd applied twice before, both without any experience in retail and had heard nothing back.

    I was first interviewed by an assistant manager, and the process was pretty normal and relaxed. He asked me about my previous work history, what I could bring to the table, and if I was comfortable trying to upsell or suggest things to customers. Basic interviews questions - - nothing you'd need to study on.

    About five minutes after interviewing with the first manager, I "interviewed" with the general manager. It kinda seemed like they were desperate for employees and he spent a lot of time talking about the bad. I was worried he'd find me shy since he never gave me a chance to speak. Leaving the room was a little awkward, but I got an email asking for a background checking as soon as I left. Not sure whether I'm going to accept it yet.

    Store Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Michaels Stores in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was approached on LinkedIn by someone from this company. Someone from corporate HR interviewed me for 40 minutes via phone about a store manager in training position. I met with a district manager who was a hour late for the interview and dressed as if she had just unloaded a truck . She tells me that they are a promote from within company and asks if I would accept a department supervisor position. I work for a company as an assistant manager. I'm awaiting a store to open shop I can promote. Why would I be interested in a $10k pay reduction and a lesser position? This DM says she has no idea what the HR person discussed with me. Why aren't you communicating?

    My advice to Michael's is to not waste an applicants time. The professionalism was poor.

    I applied online and within a week or so i was called for an interview the next day, the interview was really easy. The lady who interviewed me was very nice and easygoing and she made me comfortable. Overall it was easy and I got called back and I got the job. However I was told we would be told when orientation was and was never called back after that, so I got the job but didn't get the job, i think i called back for information 10 times , and still nothing.
