    Flexible scheduling

    Pros

    Amazing work culture, great team, healthy environment

    Pros

    Fun place to work, laid back employees, good discount. Management worked with me during serious family illness.

    I worked at A.C. Moore (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to move up
    Bonus for associates too

    Cons

    Easy to move up
    Low pay
    No team work

    Advice to Management

    Set standards and expectations for the employees and follow up behind them, associates should understand importance of team work and not thing that showing up gives them the right to their paycheck.
    All managers should be cross trained to know everything or every function in the building including framing department and unload of truck.
    Hold manager meetings and give the merch managers more responsibilities and teach them business metrics
    Associates need consistency so figure out how to get managers to stay, reward associates and managers so they begin to develop a team and encourage each other

    Former Employee - Certified Custom Framer in Holbrook, NY

    I worked at A.C. Moore part-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at the frame counter for the fact that I got to see really cool artwork sometimes, Loved a lot of the people I worked with.

    Cons

    Hours were inconsistent, sometimes I worked 35 hours a week and other less than 20 when I asked for more hours. The framing department was always understaffed. The framing facility we had to send everything out to was also one of the worst companies Ive ever had to deal with. Shipments came late very often and then I had to contact customers and get the brunt of their complaints even though it wasn't my fault. Corporate's expectations were that sales percentages had to be higher and it was alot harder to sell in the area being that I dont think the average person could really afford custom frames alot of the times. The raises were always so small, they were basically unnoticable

    Advice to Management

    make sure people are trained properly before going into departments so they know what theyre doing, manage hours better

    Pros

    Easy, flexible with hours, super easy to advance. Not high traffic at all. Customer base is mostly elderly and sweet, or pinterest moms.
