    Great Pay. Good job for singles, not so much for family life.

    I worked at Amscot Financial full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    60,000.00 dollars a year. Great training, (Continual)

    Cons

    Very expensive insurance, No work Life Balance. Hourly pay is great, but bonuses are a carrot on a stick you just never get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We used to have good insurance when we had Great West. Now you have United Health Care. Taper back building new stores and put some of that money into the people that got you where you are.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Amscot Financial.

    Interview Details

    You interview with a recruiter/interviewer that strictly does that for a living. The person you interview with will NOT be your boss. You interview and they give you a basic math test that you must complete without a calculator and be scored on. After that they ask pretty standard interview questions and ask about hours and availability (which basically need to be any time). If you pass this interview they will schedule a drug test and then call to offer you the position if you passed all the steps. The pay is $14/hour, but you may be ale to negotiate $14.50. After that, you go to a group training class with the other new hires to learn procedures, practice counting out money, etc. You are paid minimum wage for the week of training. Your normal pay starts on Day one of work at your designated location (which can be pretty much anywhere in the district, and may change).

    Interview Questions
    • Name a time when you had to deal with a conflict and how you resolved it.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I negotiated a $0.50 cent offer increase due to having a college degree (recent graduate). This was in 2010 when the economy was pretty rough. They have a pay range and the worst they can do is say no, so it does not hurt to ask.
