    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Michaels Stores.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call for an interview about a week later. The interview itself was pretty casual and informal, nothing too special in particular. Questions were mostly behavioural and whether I had prior experience in arts and crafts etc. The manager just outlined what the general duties are and expectations they have for the role. I got hired on the spot.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Michaels Stores (North Vancouver, BC).

    Interview

    Very easy. I don't think I was asked anything besides what arts or crafts I was interested in. The position was for framing and I seemed capable as far as helping customers and being responsible in general. The process began with the online test and took me around an hour to complete. Questions like "do you think stealing is wrong" or similar.

    Negotiation

    Nothing was negotiable.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Michaels Stores (Orleans, ON) in June-2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call for an interview 4 days later to be held 2 days later. Front end supervisor and replenishment associate both interviewed me at the same time and was fairly laid back. The only issue I've had personally was that they overplayed their "We'll contact you if you're selected." line.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Michaels Stores.

    Interview

    There was a hiring blitz because a new store was opening. I had just recently lost my previous job so this came at the perfect time. I had to spend some time wandering around the store despite the fact that I was on time because the interview before me ran late. I sat down and had my turn finally. Manager told me about the store, when it was opening, when the job was starting. She didn't really give me any time to ask any questions, it seemed that she had already hired me in her mind as soon as she saw that I didn't have a hunchback or a club foot.
