    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (San Antonio, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Very welcoming and friendly - as if they already decided to hire me before I walked in. I was very nervous applying and they made me feel reassured and that I was what I was looking for. It felt casual since the manager got caught up helping a customer and I was waiting around on my phone in the room.

    Interview Questions

    • If I was willing to teach the free art classes we offered due to my mentioning of previous art classes and experiences. If I had worked in retail before, stuff like that. If I was in school, if I am taking summer classes, etc.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Camp Hill, PA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    As far as I can tell, the only way to secure a job at Michaels is to call and make sure you get an interviewed scheduled. It can be hard to get ahold of the hiring manager sometimes, and when they said she'd call back she never did. Just make sure you keep calling back until you can schedule it.

    When I finally got one scheduled, it was really fast and easy. I just went in, sat down to talk with the hiring manager, and then figured out when I could start training.

    Interview Questions

    • How long are you looking to work at the store? (They don't want to hire and train someone that will only be there for a month.)   1 Answer

    I applied online. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Jacksonville, FL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call from a manager about 4 days later to set up an interview the next day. The interview was really laid back, felt more like I was talking to a friend. She asked me about my application, hours of availability, pay, and briefed on the positions I would be working in. Didn't take long, maybe 30 minutes.
