June 2018 • El Cerrito, CA

What I liked

I liked being able to work in an environment that was filled with fun crafts, activities, and home decor.

What I wish was different

I wish I had been treated differently; most head managers forgot that we were all struggling together to make sure everyone was happy.

Advice

Always be patient with yourself and others. Working retail jobs are hard because you’re on your feet the entire time, but the experience in customer service is a big talent you can bring with you into so many other jobs in the future.

Part-Time Casual Team Member

October 2018 • White Lake Township, MI

What I liked

I absolutely love working at Joann's since I get to work with people on what they need for their projects and help them leave the store with a smile on their face. I work specifically in the fabric department and I truly enjoy sewing apparel and working with fabric for various projects, so I am then able to give customers helpful opinions on fabrics and projects.

If there had been one more person to help with closing then I feel it would have gone smoother and we wouldn’t have stayed late most night. There are always a lot of go back and fabric to be put pack at night. M

Store Planning Intern

May - August 2019 • Hudson, OH

What I liked

I got to work on tangible items and create a brand new fixture for the stores. I wasn't doing busy work, I felt like it was a real job.

What I wish was different

The hardest part was honestly the location. It was very far from home and I missed my family and other loved ones. The job was in Ohio, and I live in Virginia. But it was only for the summer, so if you're looking for adventure, it's perfect.

Advice

Bring a notebook, and write down everything you can. Not just for learning things, but it makes it easier to keep up when things get hectic.

Sales Associate

July - November 2019 • Poway, CA

What I liked

The other staff were kind and the store was busy, so I was never bored.

What I wish was different

The management wasn't very considerate of part time employees, often scheduling me for more hours than I could handle with school.

Advice

Stick up for yourself! If you are given a schedule you can't do, say something. If they are not willing to negotiate your requests, find a new job.

Facilities Design Intern

August 2019 • Hudson, OH

What I liked

The company culture at Joann is amazing. The amount of support I received from every employee in the company was invaluable. I was never afraid to ask questions and I was given more responsibility than I could have ever imagined. All of this helped me grow as a designer and a professional in such a short time.

What I wish was different

My only wish is that the internship was longer. Each intern was given a project to work on throughout the 10 week internship that we were able to present to the companies executives. Another week or 2 would have been extremely valuable to be able to learn even more before presenting.

Advice

This was an amazing opportunity, so soak up every second of it. Learn as much as you can from everyone you can because they are so supportive of the intern class.

Data Science Intern

May 2019 • Hudson, OH

What I liked

I had the opportunity to work with real data and create actionable reports. I also was able to present to the executive team at the end of my internship.

What I wish was different

I wish I had the chance to experience different sections of the company (HR, Marketing, etc.)

Advice

You are given one big project to work on during the whole internship. Some managers don’t have exact direction on it, so it’s best to ask about it early.
