I worked at Amscot Financial full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Very good pay considering you don't need a college degree. Room for advancement. All branch employees, including management, are paid hourly with time and a half for any hours over 40/week. Great holiday pay. Nice vacation package.

Cons

At the branch level you work in a secure, closed environment where you must remain until the end of your shift. Shift can be as long as open to close at some locations (15+ hours). Great annual income for branch management but you're working 50 to 70 hours a week.

    Pros

    The money is fairly comparable to other companies, however no one has had a annual or cost of living increase in the last 5yrs I worked there. My co-workers within the branch were a great bunch of people and I wish them well.

    Cons

    Even though you have vacation time accrued, it is considered an inconvenience to take that time. There is no sick time accrued so if you are sick even with a doctor's note it comes out of your vacation time. There is a lot of discrimination in terms of advancement; if the district manager doesn't like you, no matter how posotive your annual reviews are, you can forget a promotion or even a pat on the back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The district managers have way too much autonomy and its a breeding ground for frustration and there is no loyalty between the company and the employees.
