It's not a bad place to work especially if you enjoy arts and crafts.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Altoona, PAJune 24, 2014
Pros: get free lunches during certain events, fifteen and thirty minute breaks depending on your shift, 20% off employee discount on entire perchase
Cons: not having a register in the back of the store for breaks, healthcare too expensive
A typical day at work would be getting counted on a register and if needed ring on register, if not needed would do returns that were left at the registers or straighten the store. Sometimes would put out stock when needed. I learned how to ring out register considering it was my first job. I also learned how to work in a retail store. Management are – more... fairly nice and easy going, but also can be very strict. The co-workers some are great to work with and can be very friendly, while others can be mean and be distant to work with no matter how nice you are to them. Some of the newer employees can be a bit difficult to work with. But also quite enjoyable to work with also as long as they do their jobs. The hardest part of the job was some of the employees to work with and the customers. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work in an arts and craft store, especially since I enjoy drawing. – less

Colorful world of crafts
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Stroudsburg, PAMarch 30, 2014
Pros: discount of 20%, craft ideas, in store demos
Cons: sexist promotions, failing business
Typical day starts off with cleaning the entire store followed by taking out the trash. Then you will have your department supervisor tell you what to do after they have been told what to do even if all ready know what to do. Then you will do it to the specifications of the department supervisor of your division only to be told that it is wrong by the – more... Regional/General manager. Fixing the problem you were ordered to do only to have your department supervisor tell you "You are taking too long".

I have learned that the title "supervisor" has nothing to do with what they know, but who they know.

The hardest part of the job is watching only female coworkers being promoted and seeing the assistant manager being the only reasonable one. – less

Productive fun workplace
Custom Framing Specialist (Former Employee), Wilkes-Barre, PAMarch 25, 2014
Pros: flexible
Cons: low hours
While working at A.C. Moore there was always a project to work on or a customer to help. The company was always coming up with new crafts to create or yummy chocolate snacks to bake. My typical day would start in the Custom Framing Center where I would check the inventory of out of stock mouldings and mats, call customers whose orders arrived and check – more... the incoming artwork. In between these duties I would assist customers not only in the framing department but around the store. I have a vast amount of knowledge on store products and have purchased many of them which made my customer service a positive experience. My co-workers were always easy to get along with and helpful when assistance was needed. The management our store provided was very comforting and positive. Everyone did their best and would strive to do more and make those around them just as comfortable. – less

A.C Moore
Front End Specialist (Current Employee), Lynchburg, VAMarch 12, 2014
While working at A.C Moore I have come in contact with many types of people. Working at customer service I have learned how to deal with many types of customers weather the are happy or disappointed with the service that we have provided at A.C Moore. I have learned working as a team is a lot better then working alone on a big project is better. Many – more... heads are better than one. The hardest part of my job was to see the customers come back to the store with a problem with one of the products or services we had provided for them. The best part of my job was seeing the customer leave with a smile on their face and happy with what they had brought. – less

Great workplace for those in high school
Sales Associate/ Front-End Specialist (Former Employee), Secaucus, NJMarch 6, 2014
Pros: discounts on art supplies
Cons: short breaks, physically demanding, dirty bathrooms, poor training
AC Moore is definitely a place for someone who is in high school looking to earn a little cash. It is a great first job. However, unless you are a manager, this job is not very rewarding. When I worked here, the registers were not very updated and caused many problems. Like many retail jobs, you work very hard for very little pay.

Crafter's Heaven
Front End Specialist (Current Employee), South Portland, MEFebruary 28, 2014
Once a customer so overjoyed by her purchases, exclaimed to me that "we" were the "Mother-ship of Happiness". If I had to judge by the amount of repeat customers, then I would have to agree.
It is a place of consistency of product and the customers want to know their favorite yarn or craft paper is still available.
Any given day that I work there, I – more... am asked where a product is located and I can 98% of the time give them accurate directions to the item or walk them to the product and place it in their hands. I give out any advise that I know about the product and answer questions to the best of my ability, which is what all the associates strive to do. If we don't know the answer, we ask a manager or an associate that can answer it. It is all about the customer's experience not the employees life. Sometimes management needs to remind the cashiers to leave your life at the door, as we try not to talk too much to each other when on register but it can be hard not to share your ideas or new project. we can stay focused on the customers giving quality customer care and service. And we encourage everyone to sign up for rewards cards because there is nothing better than getting money to spend in the store by spending money at the store. – less

Custom Framing Position
Custom Picture Framer (Former Employee), Saratoga Springs, NYFebruary 19, 2014
Pros: management, friendly staff, flexible work schedule, great discounts on art supplies and framing.
Cons: small work space, mediocre pay
The A.C. Moore in Wilton NY did more to restore my faith in retail than any other job I've ever had. The people and management were always looking out for me and my staff and always had our backs.

The management in particular was amazing. Rather than just barking orders at us that came from above they would always take our input into consideration – more... so it was more of a push and give relationship with corporate than dictations. With that kind of work environment me and my good friend took that custom framing location from middle of the pack to number one in the whole company. After seeing results corporate allowed us to purchase things we needed for the shop and sales continued to grow.

If A.C. Moore could afford to pay me a living wage I would still be there today, no joke. – less
