Pros

There is always something to do, constantly learning something new

Only one saturday off a month and 401k match would be great

Be more flexible for an additional Saturday off with being a special request

    I worked at Advance America full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Hours of operation are not that bad. Closed on Sunday and closes every day at 7PM. Its good job experience to list on a resume for someone who doesn't have a degree. The work is not hard.

    Cons

    There is not enough pay for the amount of work you do. The centers are understaffed to the point customers walk out. You have to travel to and from the bank and are worked at other centers sometimes an hour drive time away. The attitude of upper management is sometimes abusive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate really needs to find out why there is such a high turn over rate in managers and CSRs. It is the treatment of their employees from higher management that makes people not want to stay.

    I worked at Advance America full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pay is decent for the area.
    They pay mileage which is fair.
    The hours aren't too terrible.

    Cons

    Upper management is childish and does not have their act together. Ultimately, it is about who's friends with who. And if you don't want to kiss their behind, then you don't have a chance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GROW UP! Quit being bullies!

    Doesn't Recommend

    No opinion of CEO
