    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Miami, FL).

    Interview

    I sat down in the security room and the assistant manager asked me about work experience, when I was available and then they reviewed my application. The process was very simple for me because I overheard another interview before mine and they were much harder questions than they were for me.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    NOTE: This was NOT for a PT sales position but for a FT Corporate Sr. Management position. Interview went well, it was the follow-up that was unacceptable. HR positioned me as in the top 4 after I completed 2 extensive skill projects for them. The communication after the interview, which appeared to go well, went from responsive to zero response. Hey I'm an adult, I just expect the professionalism of a form letter, "thanks for coming in" but, we have decided to hire another candidate" or "position put on hold" or "position canceled"... they all work for me works for me. Unfortunately this seems to be a trend ( based on my research) with corporate and HR and hiring managers to treat prospective candidate with little to no respect. Allowing a candidate to think they have a chance at a position, while possible passing up other opportunities, is very direspectful and that of a coward. Unfortunately this reflects badly on the hiring manager as well as the Company. Hey, I followed up with Thank you emails and Thank you notes, all I received was silence, disappointing.

    I interviewed with both the district manager and the store manager and both were quite easy going. I initially applied for a different position, but became interested in this one halfway through the interviewing process.

    The interview took place after a few days after applying online. It was a group interview and the manager was really nice and honest about the job at hand. They mostly want someone who is kind and always smiling, so they can promote the rewards program.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Fargo, ND
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (West Fargo, ND) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online very early in the morning. I received a call the next day. I missed the call. When I called back, I was told the person who'd called me to set up an interview was currently in an interview and would call me back later. It was several hours before someone called me back. We set up an interview for the next morning.

    I went in half an hour early, and I was told to walk around a bit while they had a meeting. It was half an hour past when the interview was scheduled for when I was finally called up over the intercom.

    The interview took about 10 or 15 minutes. At the end, I was told I'd get a call and a job offer, or an email if I were rejected.

    I received an email two days after the interview.

    EARLY MORNING STOCKER Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oviedo, FL
    Accepted Offer
    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.
