I didn’t get paid much, and unless you are a manager you won’t. While working there I went through two managers, one was great and the other sucked. As long as you have great work ethic, and do what you’re supposed to be doing everything is fine. The relationships built with regular customers was amazing. I absolutely loved working there.
Great atmosphere, fun, move up within a year if you’re a great worker
I am not much of an overall craft person, but that doesn't matter at Jo-Anns, because the customers and coworkers were always willing to explain their projects. One can learn quite a bit about many different hobbies people have, and they were always happy to explain their projects with beginners and other experts. The job was fairly laid back, coworkers got a long well. Stocking was fairly easy and mostly able to be done fairly quickly and without much hassle for the customers. The hardest part of the job was always trying to help someone with a project that I was inexperienced with, but the best part was being able to help others find what they needed quickly and encouraging them to go after a project they were hesitant about trying. The management was nice and encouraging, which always made the day more enjoyable.
