JOANN Inc.

Apparel Salesperson

July 2017 • Seabrook, NH

What I liked

I enjoyed being surrounded by creative people and talking to customers and hearing about what projects they were working on. Even just being around all the fabric and looking at the patterns I found inspiring and there was always something visually stimulating for me to look at.

What I wish was different

Only that I could have worked more hours and spent more time with my coworkers.

Advice

Take all the opportunities you can get and speak up if you have an idea, even if it’s just about how you set up some of the merchandise.

The pay, I feel that the employees work very hard and the pay doesn't necessarily show that.

To really engage with the customers! You'd be surprised at how many awesome people you can meet through that. Hearing their stories alone was so awesome, I'm excited to go back over Thanksgiving and Christmas break!
