I worked at Advance America

Pros

Good work enviroment, friendly coworkers, loyal customers. The company did not try to hide that it was having difficulties with the new law changes.

Cons

There are only two downsides for working for Advance America in Washington state. The first is that there is limited room for advancement due to consolidation. Second downside is that you could be laid off also due to consolidation

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I feel that the company as a whole and the leadership of Advance America due understand the current market conditions. I feel they are doing a good job in the current market conditions

    I have been working at Advance America

    Pros

    The base salary pay is ok for retail business.

    Cons

    I can honestly have nothing really good to say about this company. As long as you dont have children or a life outside of work the job itself isnt that bad. Job duties are easy except when they expect us to knock on doors for collections. The turnover rate is so high the company never has to pay out benefits. And, the overall culture of the company is unprofessional. How can you expect to grow as a company, team and individual if there arent any standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Does Management really care? Before I waste my time and who is Ken Compton (we never see or hear from him on center level)? If upper management would take the advice of center associates Advance America wouldnt be the worst company ever.
