    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at A.C. Moore in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied on the company website after searching for positions. I sent my resume and cover letter and in a few days I heard back from the assistant store manager. He asked which position I would be interested in. The interview was very basic but pleasant and lasted only about a half hour.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too difficult for me, but I have a background in art and framing so I had a huge advantage. Interview took place in back office of store. Some questions I remember:

      Full or part time? Which position (if you're like me and qualify for several available ones)?
      Why A.C. Moore?
      What skills / abilities can you bring to the table? How would you use them?

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at A.C. Moore.

    Interview Details

    I applied in April of 2013; got a call from the manager in May and started working in June. The interview was fairly easy he was reading them off a page. If you have flexible hours they will hire you in a heartbeat. The questions were very standard; "Why do you want to work for AC Moore?" "Are you interested in arts and crafts?" etc.

    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiating. They pay one flat rate whether you have experience or not. It is discouraging to find out that you are worth the same as someone with no work history.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a day - interviewed at A.C. Moore.

    Interview Details

    There was a short interview and an unnecessary math test, at least in my estimation. I had been a framer for many years and the questions were "silly". I was well qualified for the job, but it took the manager over a month to get back to me.
