    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Lakewood, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I talked to the manager when I first saw that they had an opening. He told me to fill out the online application and call when I was finished. I got an interview a few days later. I came a little early and I was told to wait in the classroom. I was then brought into the office and was interviewed by the store and framing managers. Even though it was my first job interview, it was actually pretty easy. They were very friendly and easy to talk to. I was told I would get the position after the background check, which actually took a pretty long time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Tustin, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    You apply online. I received a call about half a month after I applied. I had a quick phone interview then was asked to come in for an official one. I walked into the store, told the cashier there that I was there for an interview. They introduced me to the manager of human affairs who called the assistant manager over. He asked me what brought me to michaels, and what position I would prefer. He then described the company, what their goals are, said I basically had the job and have a nice day. Easiest interview I've ever had. Probably because they are hugely understaffed right now because of summer vacation.

    Sales Associate/Cashier/Replenishment Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in La Habra, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (La Habra, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I was surprised by a group interview, the last time I went (2-4 years ago) they only used to do one on one interviews. So be prepared for that. Also, they will ask everyone different questions, try to stay calm and try to think of multiple ways of answering. Make yourself sound resourceful, I made the mistake of answering too quickly because I was a little nervous. The interviewers try to be friendly and remind you to smile the entire time. Try to avoid saying "Um" "Like" a lot. Good luck!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Huntington Beach, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The application process was pretty simple. I saw their ad on SnagAJob and decided to apply on their official website. Ended up getting called 2 days later and accepted their invite to an interview a couple of days later. On the day of the interview, I was surprised to realize that it was going to be a group interview! For being my first group interview, it wasn't actually too bad. The store manager told us to write our names on construction paper and decorate it with foam stickers to make a name card. After that, we were told to give a brief description about ourselves, what position we were applying for, and why we wanted to work at Michaels. A week later, I got a call from the store manager and he offered me a job.
