Custom Framing Manager (Former Employee) – Ashburn, VA – January 29, 2014
It's been several years since I've worked at A.C. Moore, but when I did it was a lot of fun. It was my first real job. I learned a lot about management at this job. I started off as a part time employee and would work full time during the summers. I eventually became Custom Framing Manager and built up a lot of responsibilites with ordering, organizing, taking orders, placing orders and putting together frames. I worked with a lot of great people and still are friends with them to this day. And the most enjoyable part of my job was learning more arts and crafts type projects and really becoming a manager.
A really good job to work if you're looking to grow and get some experience under your belt.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Waldorf, MD – July 12, 2018
A typical day at work would be stock, cashier, customer service and clean the store. I learned a lot on how to address situations with customers. Management was really good up until fall of 2017. The hardest part of the job is seasonal months because it becomes very stressful and fast paced. The most enjoyable was getting to meet a lot of great customers and working with my coworkers.
breaks depend on the shift you work, good hours, pay every week.
Working with great people and talking with our customer.
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) – Yorktown, VA – July 12, 2018
Starting the day with cash reconciliation, then reviewing tasks needing to be accomplished for the day/week. Prepare for Team Members to arrive, morning huddle, then assign tasks to available cashiers. Hardest part of the job is balancing the tasks that need to be completed and the influx of customers. Customers are top priority. Every day is a new adventure, be open minded and cheerful. Enjoy working with the entire team.
The store has some great products, but the associates are not trained to assist the customers with all the products they sell. It's a retail box store and there are never enough payroll hours to complete all the tasks to standard, and help the customers. The technology is way behind the times, which makes the check out too slow, and customers complain.
Sales Associate/Custom Framer (Current Employee) – Severna Park, MD – June 24, 2018
I really enjoyed working here, the employee culture is fantastic, the managers are fair and reasonable, and when shifts get stressful everyone can laugh it off and find something to joke about to lighten the mood. I made a lot of excellent friends here, and overall I would recommend the experience to anybody looking for a job with a fun, supportive, and upbeat atmosphere.
Manager for wedding and ribbon department (Former Employee) – North Plainfield, NJ – June 22, 2018
In the morning I would put out my shipment for my department and stock the shelves. Order merchandise for empty holes in my department . Change end caps for new merchandise and holidays. Take special orders for special occasions . Cut ribbon for customers and make bows. Help the customers throughout the store. Keep my departments clean and safe. Do inventory.
The atmosphere was very relaxing and very very nice where everybody is always concerned about your well-being it's just was in Burlington County but to be part of the quality control inspector to analyze the cool bars that was on the box that was being shipped out was another great opportunity to learn something different than I usually do so I really liked it
What's the work good place to work
Again you didn't give enough hours that was the only thing about it
Associate (Current Employee) – Roanoke, VA – June 17, 2018
I dabbled in a bit of every department in the store and switched through all shifts offered. Hours are pretty strict and change a lot for the pay. Management is very laid back but makes sure everything gets done accordingly. A lot of grumpy customers come in but that's found in any retail job really so needing to know how to handle someone who doesn't read coupon dates or exclusions is important. It's a great job and co workers are wonderful.
Everyone was so friendly and it was a relaxing place to work. Managers are nice and co workers made it feel they were family. After Christmas the hours are slimmed down immensely. I was cut down to two days a week and when I asked if it was possible to get more hours, the reply was, "If you can pay for gas and food then you're fine." Not what I expected from a manager.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Carle Place, NY – May 27, 2018
I really can't say too much because the store manager told me after 2 days that the other employees told her I wasn't working out as a cashier. Really only 2 days! It was strictly personal on their part. How can you screw up in 2 days.
Associate (Former Employee) – Long Island, NY – May 25, 2018
I lasted only a few weeks before quitting. Management and coworkers treat you like an idiot and accuse you of things you haven't done due to coworker gossip. Will get yelled at that you're not doing enough even after being the only one on register for 8+ hours while favored coworkers stand around and talk with each other and ignore customers. Management treats you more like a slave than an asset to their company. Not enough money for the amount of BS you put up with on the daily. Was put on for part-time and scheduled for 29.75 hours to avoid fulltime benefits at 30 hours. What a joke.
Managment, long hours on your feet, rude customers, rude staff
