Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Jo-Ann Stores.

Interview

The interview itself went great. The lady loved what I had to offer. She asked about any experience that might be useful here. I am an artist and very crafty so I mentioned that and she was happy that I had knowledge in the field. And more than qualified for the position as well.
Before I left she said I was just what they needed and welcome aboard.
I accepted the offer online on my account with them. Two weeks go by and the paperwork was taking a long time. So I call, only to be blown off for another week. Then I receive a letter in the mail saying they were unable to hire me because of a misdemeanor that occurred 2 years prior. I had previously disclosed to the hiring manager and she said it didn't matter.
While I realize it may have not been her direct decision, she still could have let me know so I could have been looking for other jobs in that 3 1/2 week process.
This was not a good experience, and I would not recommend applying here if you're not "perfect".

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Jo-Ann Stores (Sacramento, CA) in April 2009.

    Interview

    The 1 on 1 is straight forward. Most of Jo-Ann's managers are very knowedgeable in their field and the place has more of a familt atmosphere than big corporate. The next step is the presentation and a sort of scavenger hunt through the store. They try to make it fun.

    Relax, tell them your crafting and sewing skills and dress nicely but business casual.
