Staff testimonials

Jane - Visual Merchandiser 

I have been lucky enough to work for A&C Homestore for the last 5 and a half years, during which time I have progressed from a part-time position in the stores to a full-time visual merchandising role. Throughout this time my self-confidence has grown through the shared knowledge and friendship from our talented team, and encouragement to participate in many aspects of the business. 

As an employer, A&C recognizes our shared passion for design and interiors, fosters our individual skills, and helps us channel them into tasks that are both valuable to the business and ensure we love what we are doing. 

I have always felt supported, valued, and part of a team. I feel lucky to be surrounded by beautiful things, and great people all day and to be able to say I love my job.

Beck - In Store Stylist 

I truely believe, "You are the sum of who you surround yourself with" and here at A&C i am surrounded by the most incredible team of women (and our fabulous Dave) who inspire me and make coming into work an absolute dream. We work hard but we laugh harder!

Emma - Digital Marketing Coordinator 

Working at A&C for me has always been about the culture and opportunities to try new things. I started working at A&C Homestore part-time while I was studying and worked across all three stores. Once I graduated I moved into a full-time role as the Webstore Manager, through this I had opportunities to learn new things and get a really good understanding of how the business works. I am now the Digital Marketing Coordinator and am so grateful to have the opportunity to grow in new areas and keep learning new things every day! 

You always hear the cliche of family culture in workplaces but A&C truly is that to me. The A&C team has been there through lots of exciting milestones for me and I have found great friends in the team!

Olivia - In Store Stylist

I love working at A&C because we have such a great team and there's always plenty of laughs going on between all our hard work.

Annabelle - Store Manager 

Throughout my time at A&C, I have sincerely appreciated the opportunity to engage in in-store sales, fostering direct customer interactions, and building lasting relationships by providing tailored in-house design styling packages.

A&C has been exemplary in its commitment to my professional growth, offering comprehensive training that has significantly enhanced my product knowledge and management skills. Despite our location in the South Island, the team at A&C operates cohesively, fostering a strong support network. I truly value the open communication culture at A&C, as they consistently seek and welcome staff feedback, actively incorporating it to improve our working environment and overall performance.
