    Pros

    This job lets you work at your own pace and travel locally. Its not just a desk job but a marketing and outgoing one.

    Cons

    You must drive your own vehicle for customer field visits/marketing/ store errands/ etc. Mileage reimbursement is there at $0.38/mile. The training is terrible unless you work for a HUGE store in a big town.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, pull yourself together. TMX training is a JOKE. There is no time to complete any online training as you can only do it in-store.


  3. Good Job if you are ok with being at work all day long!!!

    Pros

    it is decent pay there is no drug tests

    Cons

    crazy policies that change day to day that you are expected to know. Micromanagers all throughout the company are required to do way more than you are paid for you are required to chase customer's home which is dangerous

    Advice to Management

    stick with store management position if you are promoted to gm and you dont perform how they think you should you will be fired. it is a a numbers game. you can be the best employee ever but if your numbers are bad (which is somewhat uncontrollable) your out!!!

    I have been working at InstaLoan full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    In all honesty, I can't think of even one good thing that came of this experience. I suppose I could say at least it is good work experience for my resume.

    Cons

    I received absolutely ZERO training before being thrown into the job. Long hours. Didn't always get my break in a timely manner. Too many mandatory phone calls. If you don't like the phone do not work here. Terrible work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Be Realistic about the phone calling. Actually give the training the company requires. Use a bit more discretion when giving out loans. not everyone should have a loan. it is bad customer service to give a loan to someone you know can't pay it back.


  7. There is no such thing as family friendly company

    Pros

    Love the customers and the employees

    Cons

    New company, always changing procedures without clearly thinking them out. Do not recognize their hard workers and show any type of appreciation.

    Advice to Management

    You are having all your good employees leaving because of the low moral and lack of appreciation from upper mangement

    Pros

    At one point in time (like when I first started for the company 2 and a half years ago) it was a great place to work. Upper management seemed to give a flip about you......

    Cons

    .....fast forward.... upper management doesn't care about you as a person. You are expected to perform to unrealistic expectations no matter how insane the request. Work/life balance non-existent. Had to leave the company. Totally unbearable

    Advice to Management

    Stop lending money to people who you know can't pay it back and then holding your employees accountable for collecting. News flash....if the customers are not paying their car note, uncle sam and other bills nine times out of ten they won't pay you especially if you have no collateral for the loan

    I worked at InstaLoan full-time

    Pros

    Supplemental bonus once a month. And getting to meet some good people over the years (customer's and staff).

    Cons

    They have no identity. Make up your mind, and quit changing your Loan Products. It's almost impossible to get beyond the temporary supplemental bonus. Extremely high turnover. Marketing plan is not good.

    Advice to Management

    District Manager's micro-manage everything single thing. So frustrating!

    I worked at InstaLoan full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Best part of working for this company is the people you meet and the fact that they're closed on Sundays.

    Cons

    Company is incredibly cheap. You will work as hard as the GM but be paid substantially less. Constant home visits to customers who are late= Dangerous. No raises. Their view is you want a raise get yourself promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees, stop threatening them and realize the clientele you have.
