This is a good company to work for.

Center Manager (Current Employee)
Navarre, FL

I have been working at Advance America full-time for more than 3 years

ProsIt is not a difficult job and the hours are decent. They are closed on Sundays, so that will always be one of your days off.

ConsIt can be a little monotonous at times. There is a lot of pressure to collect debts from people, which isn't always pleasant, but it is part of the job.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be nice if there were more of a chance to progress and if all center managers had the chance to view district and regional managerial opportunities.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
