This is the worse company I would say I have ever worked for. The previous review is dead-on accurate. However, I would like to add a few things.
1. There are NO proper training standards. One person will tell you one thing and then someone will come right after and tell you something completely different for the same situation. There was no real "manager" at the store where I worked, so the regular employees (non seasonal) all wanted to be managers! A HOT MESS. They started me on Black Friday! No training whatsoever, just threw me out onto the sales floor, the acting "managers" are not ever out on the floor only to help cover the registers. Therefore, it's every man for themselves. You kind of learn as you go along....until you mess up which is par for the course since there's no training. This is not how you run a business, or treat people.
2. Customers try to take advantage of you and Joanns will not have your back
3. The facilities for employees are also disgusting. Lucky enough to have soap to wash hands, or paper in the bathrooms
4. No incentive to work there. There are no real discounts for employees. Joanns ALWAYS has coupons (usually 20-60%) and/or sales. If you buy something on sale you CANNOT then apply your employee discount (of 20%). Therefore, you're shopping the sales just like everyone else.
