    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores in March 2017.

    Basic interview, not a long process at all. Thought I did incredibly well, but there were so many applicants and only one position available, so I didn't get the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores (Shreveport, LA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, and was called for an interview the following week. The store manager sat down with me in the break room and we talked for a good three minutes. She said as long as I passed my background check, the job was mine. I got an email 15 minutes later stating I was in the on-boarding process, and I was good to go, as long as everything came back good. It did, and I started working a few days later.

    Custom Framing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lehigh Acres, FL
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores (Lehigh Acres, FL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I went in for the interview and I couldn't find a manager anywhere. I walked around for 10 minutes and finally found someone and she told me to go wait in the classroom. I waited in there for about 15 minutes after my scheduled appointment and she finally walked in. She sat down and she asked me why I wanted to work there and my experience in framing. She was telling me a whole bunch of stories we were laughing we had a very good time. Then she said that I would be contacted in three days. So I waited and three days came but then it was a weekend. I figured maybe that they're doing a background check and it takes till probably Monday to get the results back. Still didn't get a call and three weeks later I got an email. I originally did the interview for full-time custom framer and if necessary possibly part time framer. The email said that she had done a lot of thinking about it and they would rather me be a part time framer. However she said that the pay for full-time framer, which I asked for only $.25 more than I was making as a part-time framer at my old job, was too high for them. I knew I could get a better job elsewhere so I declined.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores (Pembroke Pines, FL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It was a very relaxed interview. I was called and scheduled an interview for that week. The store manager and hiring manager gave me my interview. I was informed at the end of the interview that they wanted to hire me and was told what I was being offered as starting pay. I then had to do some on-line quizzes that were easy and just informed me of the requirements, benefits, and expectations of being an employee of Joann's.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores (Grants Pass, OR) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Cattle call, nothing one on one. 8 other applicants show up at a table and wait, very unprofessional. Then after management late for interview time everyone sits there wondering WTF is going on? Elementary questions, first statement Is "This job pays minimum wage so leave now if you don't like it " what kind of a mature professional talks to a room of people like that? A lot of young kids work there as 28 hours a week per employee is allowed except management that gets full time and a lot of money, so when they cut your hours they receive your pay instead.

    Great Interview with questions on point and candid description of duties and expectations and benefits. It took a while to get interview ad background check completed thru online process. Interview was done in Group rather than 1:1 which did not seem fair to all participants to me - 1:1 was preferred.
