Decent Temporary Part-time Job
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Apex, NC – August 3, 2016
Working at AC Moore is a pretty standard retail job. I'm a part-time sales associate, so my review pertains to that and not to full-time or salaried employees. I've been at AC Moore for almost a year, starting as a seasonal employee last fall and staying on with the company. I give the job three stars because I enjoy the people I work with, feel appreciated by most of my managers, and am thankful they started me out- even as a seasonal employee- at more than minimum wage. Specific to my location, the scheduling manager is very good about honoring requested days off and is willing to work with my schedule. I don't give the job a higher rating mainly due to rules and restrictions from corporate. First of all, this is the very first retail job I have ever worked that does not allow me to delete items in a purchase. For example, if I ring up a customer's purchase and then they decide they don't want one of the items or if the scanner accidentally scans an item twice, I have to call a Front End Specialist or a manager to delete the item. As you can imagine, this is very inefficient- especially during Christmas season- and it is absolutely my number one complaint. There are other strict rules, particularly their coupon policy, that is frustrating because if you follow it and the customer asks for a manger, the manager will come over and give them what they want, which belittles employees. Overall, it's a decent temporary part-time job that is helping me pay down some debt.
pay more than minimum wage for part-time employees, fun co-workers, scheduling manager flexible with hours and requested time off
corporate policies that make the job more difficult
