    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at JOANN Stores (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call in less than a week. Manager was super nice over the phone, asked for an interview the following day. I went in and the whole thing took about 10 minutes. I brought a copy of my resume, which he was glad I did. He asked me pretty basic/easy questions, and told me he'd like to hire me. He explained duties of the job, the dress code, and even offered to contact Jo-Ann stores in the area of my college when I go out of state, so I could have a job even when I leave the Jo-Ann in my area. :) He said I would receive an e-mail with a job offer, although all I have received (almost a week later) is an e-mail about work opportunity tax credit. I walked out of there super happy, and employed! :)

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at JOANN Stores (Tucson, AZ) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Interview was simple 1:1 and the manager seemed pleasant at the time. The so-called "on-boarding" process, (new-hire tax papers, background check etc.) was done on-line, and took about a week. The only 'training' was about 3 hours of chat and handing us papers about the company's history.

    Very nice woman who interviewed me! The ladies that worked there were also very nice. I asked one of them at the fabric cutting station and she was delighted to hear that they would be getting help, she redirected me to the manager who led me into the break room to hold the interview. Basic interview questions, but nothing too pressy or difficult answer- no bull.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at JOANN Stores (Florence, KY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    It was more of a get to know you conversation that did not assess your customer service skills and abilities. I believe I only got the position out of need for employees and the experience I already had in customer service.
