    Early Morning Replenishment Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vernon Hills, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Vernon Hills, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I scheduled the interview and on that day arrived on time. I notified the checker that I had an interview. I was sent to a waiting room. It took a very, very long time for the manager to show up. I waited for over 15 minutes. It did not help either, because I ended getting more nervous and I even thought of leaving after 20 minutes passed. Finally, the manager showed up. The interview was very quick! It only took about 5-8 minutes and then it was done. She told me she would send me the background check. I saw that it said in the email if I passed the background check, they would then offer me the job. I authorized the background. Several weeks later since I authorized the background check and I have heard nothing since. I figure they must've found someone more qualified to do the stocker job. I won't be applying for Michaels again, waste of time. I still have no idea what they thought of me.

    I arrived quite early, so I walked around the cashier informed the manager that I was there for my interview, the cashier stated to go into the craft room and manger will be there soon. So I went into the craft room, waited for about 5 minutes, the manager came in and introduced himself to me, explained that it was seasonal and possibly time after the holidays. I was told to go online and submit to a background check, that's to see if your a phedophile, which is good. I passed, and the manager told me to call in a week, and on Friday October 26, 2016 I got the job and been working there as I write this, the interview was casual, I dressed up in a nice shirt and dress pants. the interview went well..don't sweat the small stuff, if your a business man or woman and want to supplement your income great place to work and I hope you know about crafts, at least know what a pair of scissors are...lol
