    Cons

    Poor training, internal conflict, Poor management

    Advice to Management

    Management looks at their custom framing department to generate large sales. However, upper management should be aware of the amount of competitors in the area and the demographics of the surrounding area. Custom framing is not cheap and in a area with low income levels and high competition it is likely that sales will not be good. Management needs to give framers a detailed plan of action to increase sales, just saying "walk around and talk to customers about our 60% off deal" is not going to cut it.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at A.C. Moore (Port Saint Lucie, FL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call a couple weeks later to come in the next day for an interview at 4:00. I arrive at 3:45, and I'm told to sit in the bench at the front of the store to wait for the interviewer. Ok. 15 minutes pass, then 30. Then 45. Finally, after an hour, I'm called to the back. Not a single person apologized or explained why the wait took so long. Not a single person. Interviewer asks one question, and cuts me off before I finish answering. I'm then told that they're not hiring 17 year olds due to a rule change that took place an hour ago. Ok? Not sure whether to believe that or not. Finally I'm told to call back next month for a possible seasonal job. Yeah, not happening. Extremely unprofessional staff. Never visiting that place ever again.
