    I have been working at Advance America full-time

    Pros

    Good hours, good training, promotions from within, supervisors try to make things fun to keep everyone interested. Great coworker relationships.

    Cons

    Too many changes coming down all at once. Inconsistency in leadership, too many responsibilities for pay

    Advice to Management

    Streamline information before sending out, understand what really goes on in centers each day: the workload, trying to pass audits, numerous goals
