    Pros

    Amscot gives you the opportunity to grow and helps you develope your strengths and also allows you to work on your weaknesses in a fast pace environment.

    Cons

    I believe cons in any job with any employer should be between the employer and employee.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to use the strengths of both your long term newer employees. Aces in their places.

    Pros

    some pros working here are the hours and the fact they are flexible with my work life. If you need time off just ask, if you need a day off, just ask. excellent pay and you move up quickly. Our turnover is very low compared to other retail facilities. coming from fast food, our turnover was 50+%. you will always have management's support even when you make mistakes. great co workers to work with always make any work environment enjoyable.

    Cons

    i enjoy working for the company and do not have any cons at the moment

    I have been working at Amscot Financial full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great co workers. The open door is one of the best I've seen within a company. Our fellow department leaders strive to do great and we have a great team atmosphere. The pay is good, benefits for health are good. Promotion opportunities are good.

    Cons

    It would be nice to get an extra week of vacation after 10 years or even 15 because right now everyone is capped at 3 weeks a year with no other time off. I would think after a 10 year commitment to the company an extra week off should be rewarded.

    Opportunity to move up quickly.
    Local work.
