    Framing Associate Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Nothing was negotiable.

    Replenishment Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Michaels Stores in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Michaels Stores in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    They have this little sheet that they ask questions off of most of it was typical but the person interviewing me was extremely nosy and liked putting people on the spot.

    I came on time for my interview but the person they had lined up before me was late (wandering around the store for 40 minutes and didn't tell anybody he was there to be interviewed) so I had to go wait around for 20 minutes so he could have his interview first which really made me feel like not even coming back for my interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Her:"Oh why can't you work Sundays?"
      Me: "I go to church"
      Her: "Oh! what religion are you?" (YOU DON'T ASK PEOPLE THAT)
      Me: ".....I'm a Jehovah's Witness"
      Her: "I have a friend who's a Jehovah!" (If she legitimately had a friend who was in my religion she would know that is an ignorant thing to say)
      Me: "Oh.. cool"

      Her: "So since you're "one of them" can you still touch our seasonal stuff since it'll be Christmas, Halloween and Easter?"
      Me: "Yeah, I have no problem with those holidays, I just don't celebrate them".
      Her: "Oh okay then"

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ottawa, ON
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Michaels Stores in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I went through 5 interviews for this job consisting of telephone and face to face interviews. They have a thorough interview process. I think they are just trying to make sure they are hiring the right person and it is the right fit.

    Interview Questions
    • I always find the most difficult question to answer is "why do you want to work here?" because you don't know if what you think you know about the company is true.   Answer Question
