I have been working at PLS Financial Services full-time (More than 3 years)
Lots of growth opportunity
Fast paced environment, you’ll never be bored.
Keeping the place clean is a major thing for them, so you always work in a decent environment, a rarity in those types of locations. They give you access to a lot of information and training in areas such as compliance; money business’ regulations and leadership. If you’re interested this can be a huge learning experience.
If you are salaried be ready to work endless hours. The norm for a manager is 10 hours three days a week and 9 the remaining two (49 hrs). You also work the first Saturday of the month which leaves you with a 59 hours week and only one day off.
Dress code is extremely strict; no visible tattoos or piercings and even though as a CSR or Shift supervisor you’re standing for 8 hours they won’t allow comfort or cushioned shoes at work.
Advice to Management
You should be as concerned about salaried employees working overtime as you are about hourly employees. A burnt out employee is not effective, is prone to errors and is a scary sight for whoever might be considering growing in the company. Any one gets deterred by seeing a store manager that’s stressed out and exhausted most of the time.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PLS Financial Services (Chicago, IL) in October 2017.
I Was supposed to interview with four different people in one day. The final interview was canceled with the last manager and was supposed to be followed up Only for me to receive a phone call saying that they went with another candidate. I looked online the following week and the position had been reposted. I would’ve appreciated the truth.
