    IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irving, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (London, ON (Canada)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    To begin I was left to wait for 25 mins upon arrival as the manager had not planned well to meet with me. When i was asked into a dim dirty room, which i later found out was their ' class room', it was obvious to me the person had little to no experience in interviewing

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Troy, MI
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Oviedo, FL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and they called me like 2 weeks after, went in store for my interview. Honestly one of the best interviews I've had, because they didn't ask a lot of hypothetical questions. I was interviewed by 2 managers at the same time. They just wanted to get to know me, asked about school, when I could work, and what it would be like to work there. Talked about the hours, 3AM to like 11AM. Overall, pretty good interview.
