    I worked at CheckSmart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get to make your own schedule, easy work, full two-week training, individual and group bonus

    Cons

    Micromanaged by people who don't know what they're doing. Special treatment. Highschool like. You'll have no life. Bonus is fixed so whoever they want to get it will.. And if not that's how the cookie crumbles.

    Advice to Management

    Turn over rate speaks for itself

    Pros

    Easy work environment, fun, and endless promotion oppurtunities but must be willing to relocate.

    Cons

    Upper management dont really know what goes on at stores and think they live in a world of pixie dust and fairies

    Advice to Management

    Stay on top of your duties dont slack off.

    Pros

    I can't see a good reason to work at First Virginia/Checksmart , is just wasting your time.

    Cons

    Working unprofessional management, not organized company, don't care for the employees, every DM makes their own rules that are not supported by Handbook or HR. Simply don't waste your time

    Advice to Management

    Everyone should be on same page, and you need to care more for the employees and see why you have 6-7 employees leaving the company on weekly basis.

    Pros

    Learn about loans, money, if you do well you can take that knowledge elsewhere and earn more.

    Cons

    Moving up within the company is possible however it feels very scammy and like you are not on the customer's side. You are expected to do so much for the hourly wage you get paid. Managers and up actually make pretty good money. No such thing as set schedules unless you have been there for a very very long time.


  8. Mediocre Job

    not competitive pay or benefits, strict policies, difficult customers, hard to grow within the company

    The company has no money. Getting promoted is all about who you suck up to. No leadership.

    I worked at CheckSmart full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The best thing about working there is you get free money orders....that's it. And if your Facebook friends with your boss or co workers your a good employee. I could leave early whenever I wanted because my location was slow.

    Cons

    The company has no incentives. You get $3.00 per prepaid card you sell and you'll sell 10 a month if your lucky. They want you to get promise to pay dates for delinquent accounts yet offer you as the employee NO BONUS'...NO INCENTIVES...why would you care if a customer cures they're delinquency if If doesn't effect me directly. Moral is typically down due to nature of the job and overload of work. Upper management offered no leadership or encouragment for promotion. You work all holidays other than thanksgiving and Christmas, no sick days, no occasional absencez. Don't dare call off. You're expected to do more work than what they pay you for. No procedures or guidelines every thing was a gray area.

    Advice to Management

    Be serious about your job do not just promote people that suck up to district managers and or whoever management may have some sort of unprofessional feelings towards be sure to lead employees and teach them and let them grow and try to make them successful instead of being catty. Employees have families, bills and a life. Remember that.
