boring job
Store Representative (Former Employee), Woburn, MAJuly 25, 2015
Pros: 2 paid 15 min breaks, 35% discount
Cons: managment, low pay
Your normal retail experience. You work, and go home after stocking. Its the ideal place for an older employee, or a house wife. Theres nothing special about it. i personally disliked my manager, and felt the Assistant Manager should have been general manager. i hated the counters, to small to actually put something on. The store was chaotic, it almost seemed no one cared enough to keep it organized. i was initially excited about this place, im a creative person, but they dont actually let you be creative at all.

Great management, fun environment
Associate (Former Employee), Augusta, MEJune 21, 2015
Pros: Great discount
Cons: Pay
A typical shift was being on register, cleaning in between customers, answering phone calls, and helping customers.

I learned excellent customer service.

Management was awesome. I had a full time retail job, that did not allow me to have a set schedule at the time. Management was always willing to work around my first job to give me hours. She would also show her concern when she thought I was over-worked.

Hardest part of the job was not trying to buy out the store.

Most enjoyable part was learning new crafts.

They don't give us many hours. My coworkers are fine, but management could use some improvements. It's not the worst place I've worked, though.

FLORAL DESIGNER (Former Employee), Wilmington, DEMay 11, 2015
My overall experience with A.C. Moore was enjoyable, because each day was different. I was responsible for quickly designing floral arrangements for the store and customers, under specific budgets, which made the job challenging but exciting. The company was disorganized at times, but I enjoyed the creative freedom that I had when working for A.C. Moore.

The best job I've ever had
Front End Supervisor (Former Employee), Clarksburg, WVMay 2, 2015
I was the front end supervisor for a while. I made sure all the cashiers had everything they needed and understood their jobs. I took care of the angry customers and handled returns. Certain aspects of the job can be difficult, but whenever there was an issue, the managers addressed it in a professional manner. Everyone worked as a team and made coming into work enjoyable. A.C. Moore is a job I would highly recommend to anyone.

Fun, productive work place with friendly employees
Associate (Current Employee), Blasdell, NYApril 24, 2015
Pros: Great co-workers, Fun and friendly environment, Fair lunch breaks, Light work
Cons: N/A
For myself, a typical day at work primarily involves customer interaction and service at the cash registers, but also on the sales floor. I assist customers in finding what they need, and also giving suggestions if there is an easier way to accomplish a project that the customer is working on. I give my own personal experience and preferences if they are topic related, which helps the customers more because they understand that I can relate to what they are doing, especially if the craft/project is a new experience for them. Management and the co-workers are phenomenal! They are so friendly and very personable, and make the job so much more enjoyable! There is truly no "hardest part" of the job, because everything is so much fun!

Pros: All of the friends I have made in my nearly eight years.

Alright.
Team member cashier/retail (Former Employee), Harrisburg, PAMarch 6, 2015
Pros: 10% discount
Cons: pricing was usually messed up leading to needing help which could take forever to get.
This job was simple, you go in work on register or you stock. While you work you have to run back and forth between customers, other then that you clean and take care of your own trash when you leave. The pay is alright and you can advance if your there long enough, but its seasonal too so there's a chance you could lose the job. Management isn't bad but they could stand to just work harder on pricing in the store. Other then that its not bad.

Good workplace with good people.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Current Employee), Hamilton, NJFebruary 6, 2015
Pros: 20% employee discount
Cons: no benefits, little opportunities
A typical day of work will involve primarily being up at register as a cashier and communicating with customers and other employees. Occasionally, I will take out the trash, clean up items in the aisles, and organize the stock room by lifting boxes. I learned how to communicate with others and relate to them. Management was okay. The managers were really nice and compatible with my schedule, but they struggled with being organized and they struggled with allocating hours to other employees. My co-workers were really good to work with and were very friendly and good with other customers. The hardest part of my job was being on register on very slow days and just being stuck there. My favorite part of my job was when I went in the stock room to organize it. I enjoyed lifting boxes and lifting things around.
