It was really great working at AC Moore. My Co-Workers were friendly and always giving advice on how things should get done efficiently. From the store I learned some skills that I hope I can take with me into the next job I get.
SALES ASSOCIATE/CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) – Wappingers Falls, NY – February 5, 2019
working at acmoore was an entry level position to get me started in the working world. I started as an associate and quickly became a customer service representative. the hardest part of the job was the customers and that was not very hard at all .
Sales Associate AC Moore (Former Employee) – Holyoke, MA – January 28, 2019
The typical day of work was me starting out counting my cash resister. I would be on register most of the day but off and on I would put away stock and clean the store. This location was closing for good so I helped get the store ready for closing, The management were great, Very understanding. The culture of the workplace was very good and a very good company to work for. The hardest part of the job was me knowing that it was only for a month before they closed. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people. I enjoy working with the staff and I loved my customers.

Manager (Current Employee) – Va – January 17, 2019
Worked my butt off for years there just to get demoted due to some words down from corporate to be under appreciated. From no holiday pay due to expansion of the store, to saying that we had to make some changes within the store to accommodate the new stores.
Great work environment for the most part but can have its downsides
Custom Framing Specialist (Current Employee) – Mechanicsville, VA – January 12, 2019
As with any job, you'll have certain customers and coworkers who can be difficult. I can't speak for every A.C. Moore location, but the working atmosphere at our A.C. Moore is really great. Our general manager is very easy to talk to, most of the people hired are hardworking and easygoing. As with any retail outlet, there are certain seasons that are chaotic. Some of the customers though can just be incredible to work with. I do custom framing so the stories I get to hear and the history I get to frame blows my mind. Some things are deeply personal so I am honored to be entrusted with something so precious.
I believe the company at store level does a very good job at being fair to both the customers and the employees, which at times can be a very difficult line to walk. I will say though that I have not been impressed with decisions made at higher levels. There are some things that, although they're not ideal, make sense, such as cutting hours significantly after Christmas. There was, however, one time it was snowing and the person who gives us permission to close refused because we needed the holiday sales and he thought there was a conspiracy since every store in the area was calling for permission. The roads in my area that day were deemed unsafe at around noon. We did not close until 5pm. I was disappointed to say the least. Again, that's not at store level. My manager gave me permission to leave whenever I felt I needed to since I live in the woods and it would be harder to get to my house. I believe she would do the same for anyone else there. But the quality customermore... service and care for employees so evident at store level does not seem to be so at corporate, or at least for the manager in my region.less
work environment, weekly pay, flexible hours
inconsistent hours, don't know your schedule until the last minute
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Egg Harbor Township, NJ – January 10, 2019
One of the best parts about working here is in the summer times if you are crative and love to do crafts with little kids. They have a program to allow people to come in and do a free craft with their kids for free.
Department Manager (Former Employee) – NJ – January 9, 2019
Don't bother trying to work your way up to GM. Hard work won't get you anywhere. The issues start with the RD's who have no clue about the company or stores while trying to make a change. They want long hours out of you. The more you can do the better but your pay raise will only be .27 cents yearly. No yearly or quarterly bonuses unless you are an AGM or GM.
Retail staff do not get paid enough! Work environment was fine. Staff were nice some more helpful then others. Schedule was a bit crazy and never consistent. Over all easy and supervisor left you alone to work as long as you were working.
General Manager (Current Employee) – New Jersey – January 8, 2019
Very difficult to get ahead. Constant turnover in upper management positions, no ability to create rapport. Some turnover has resulted in re-hiring of former team members. A lot of questions. Can't get out of their own way. Fighting uphill battles. Be warned.
