    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Fresno, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    It was a very brief and easy process. We had a group interview. The hiring manager asked us a few very explanatory questions. We had a personality test, background check, and they asked about our skills. Just be fun and create a positive vibe during the interview. They like an easy going person, since the staff is so small
    they want to enjoy working together like family. Easy peasy interview, especially when they're in need of seasonals during the holidays. Good luck!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Michaels Stores (Las Vegas, NV) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I first applied online and waited a week. The hiring manager gave me an interview as soon as I called. About 2 weeks in, I finished my interview and the hiring manager recommended me to the store manager. She showed me the Assistant store manager and said that the store manager would either 1. Call me to get a background check or 2. Call me to go for a second round of interviews. I waited 2 weeks after the interview and finally called back the store. The hiring manager said that the store manager was putting in background tests and would receive the results soon. (Manager never contacted me after interview) I actually got a call/job offer the following day about an hour after.

We had a short conversation before they asked me why I was applying at Michaels and if I enjoyed arts and crafts. They then discussed where I would be a best fit in and asked if I was ok with this position. I will go in for orientation soon and start training.
