Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Michaels Stores in May 2017.

Interview

I was approached on LinkedIn by someone from this company. Someone from corporate HR interviewed me for 40 minutes via phone about a store manager in training position. I met with a district manager who was a hour late for the interview and dressed as if she had just unloaded a truck . She tells me that they are a promote from within company and asks if I would accept a department supervisor position. I work for a company as an assistant manager. I'm awaiting a store to open shop I can promote. Why would I be interested in a $10k pay reduction and a lesser position? This DM says she has no idea what the HR person discussed with me. Why aren't you communicating?

My advice to Michael's is to not waste an applicants time. The professionalism was poor.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Michaels Stores in December 2013.

    Interview

    Multiple phone interviews followed up with in store interviews and a store tour. Lots of behavior based questions. Additional phone interview with the zone vice president and then final word from HR. The process took much longer than I expected. They also do a very thorough background check. So due to moving around frequently it took quite a while for the background to clear.

    Negotiation

    They send you a job offer letter and give you a couple days to decide.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Michaels Stores in September 2012.

    Interview

    Several steps to the process. The Recruiter, Paige Walsh, was simply the best recruiter with whom I have dealt. She is fantastic. After the Recruiter, I met with a Store Manager, a District Manager, the Zone Vice President, and the Zone Human Resource Manager. All were very good, as each had a different expectation and view point. It was well-organized, but there was a long period in between interviews.

    • There were several who interviewed me in several steps. All wanted to know about my background.   Answer Question
