    I worked at Advance America

    Pros

    Advance America was an ok place to work. It was long hours, but the schedule was flexible as long as business needs were met. It was decent pay for the work.

    Cons

    Long days, outdated IT system, collection calls were a hassle, no real room for advancement, especially for those with a degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give positive feedback when applicable, not just negative feedback.

    Pros

    Best retail hours available. A good place to learn management skills, meeting new people in the community.

    Cons

    Company policy not black and white. To many gray areas. The operations manual says one thing, and you are asked to do another. Turn over rate is extreemly high due to lack of management skills at a higher level. Poor communication between upper and lower management. All centers do not work together, in fact sometimes they work against each other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to spend a few days a month working in the centers with the customers to gain an understanding of what actually goes on in the center rather then a fictitous situation.
