    I worked at Jo-Ann Stores part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's always best to do something you love, and I really love crafts! I always looked forward to going to work.

    Cons

    Some of the company policies were a little strict and/or unnecessary. Also there weren't very many hours available for the hourly employees, the salaried employees got them all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to cut hours too much in high volume stores. It's impossible to run a store with only three people (including the manager) on duty. Even a small one.
