Unknown At Time of Interview Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – Like I said, there weren't any questions.   Answer Question

Sales Associate/Cashier/Replenishment Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Michaels Stores in July 2013.

Interview Details I received a phone call the day after I submitted the application. I was told who to speak with and when. Interview was straight forward and relaxed professional. I was hired at the end of the interview and told to buy my uniform (basic pants and shirt from anywhere) and when to come in for training.

Interview Question – I cannot recall exactly. It was one of those "What would you do?" kind of questions probably and it was a moral vs business dilemma.   Answer Question
