    I have been working at Check 'n Go full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love my job here at Check 'N Go and Allied Cash Advance. I work for some of the best people currently managing an Allied store. I loev my job so much because It gives me the opportunity to grow and learn in the financial/loaning buisness. It is also gives the most amoutn of time to spend with my kids! I work 9:45 to 6:30 Monday- Friday. I feel that they offer us amazing benefits, great pay, and all around good environment to work in. I am very thankful for this job I have and its been and will continue to be one of the best job oppertunities in my life. My Distric Directive really does care about each and every one of us that work under him and can tell when were starting to get over worked or worn out. He always has some super cool incentive for us! They give us pay raises yearly if you have excelled over the past year, You have the opportunity to go no where but up in this company, The 401k benefits are amazing.

    Cons

    I feel the only con is you need to be able to work with the general public and if you cant handle that your just not gonna do well.

    Advice to Management

    None.. They are all pretty cool and amazing.

    I worked at Check 'n Go full-time

    Pros

    Pay for managers is REALLY good!! Benefits are pretty good. Paid Vaca, Affordable Insurance, 401 K, Not working Sundays. Every other Sat off.

    Cons

    HORRIBLE hours for CSR. Working by yourself. HIGH stress. HORRIBLE pay for CSR's. Start out is great but raises a joke for CRS's. On your feet for possibly 12 hrs with no break including bathroom. No committing DDO's who lie to get what they want. Company doesn't care about the safety of their employees only the all mighty dollar. They'll work you on and off the clock with no remorse. You may or may not get a day off. Will replace you in the drop of a hat with someone who brown noses and is younger than you. If you're let go they give you ultimatums like "if you stay until the end of the week then we'll pay you severance." This is by phone at the end of a Friday night shift of working all by yourself. They don't care if you feel unsafe or not. Even had a DDO laugh at me that I was being threatened , didn't see why I needed to call the police. The Police felt different and said the guy that threatened me was known for violent behavior. I was escorted to my car that was sitting in the dark BTW. Parking lot was not always lit.

    Advice to Management

    Care for the safety of your employees like they are your immediate family. Be honest not skirt issues or just lie to your employees. Show no favoritism to younger, newer employees because they're kissing your butt. Value employees who have been with the company for a while. Take into consideration that they have been there sometimes longer than you. Use their knowledge not treat them like they are stupid. Don't' laugh at being threatened by an angry customer. MOST OF ALL, get better camera's, lit parking lots. Maybe have escorted bank runs on the day after busy days. YOU NEED more security!! TWO workers at all times would be helpful.

    I worked at Check 'n Go (More than a year)

    Pros

    You basically work by yourself.

    Cons

    You work alone, so on busy days it all falls on you. Turn over rate is high. You can be a manager over night. It’s really nothing to it.

    Pros

    I recently started but I absolutely love the culture, the love of people (both customers and employees) and the vision. There is a lot of help coming from the peers but also from upper management. Constant positive reinforcement and good vibes all around.

    Cons

    Honestly I don’t have any cons as of now

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work. I never would have thought management could be this great.

    I worked at Check 'n Go full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    PTO. Dental and medical benefits

    Cons

    Check N’ Go was one of the worst places I have ever been employed at. I was left to work alone 90% of the time. This made it extremely difficult to take breaks or even use the restroom. We were all expected to cover other stores when people would call out except for the district managers favorites. Every morning we had mandatory Skype meetings where we had to recite scripts and waste 45 minutes doing nonsense. One person was expected to do it all. From doing deposits, buying supplies, cleaning the store, collection calls, helping customers and meeting goals. Too much work too little pay. These type of places should be out of business forcing your employees to push the maximum loans on customers that can not afford to pay your high interest loans back. Last check was paid two weeks late which is illegal in the state of California by the way. Save yourself the trouble and look else where.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pushing loan amounts that customers can not pay back. Get more help in the stores. It is unsafe to have one person working alone in a financial institution all day without proper security.

    Pros

    Healthy competitive environment, upper management takes suggestions from the field about what is a waste of time or what is working to drive results, managers have the ability to run their location based on store needs, work/life balance is great! Integrity is high throughout the entire company!

    Cons

    Can't think of a single con!!!!! Definitely the best company I have ever worked for in any industry!!!!!

    Pros

    Rewards, recognition, and pay raise.

    Cons

    You only get all of the above if you have the right district and your DDO praises you and your store manager likes to travel. Mine does so she doesn't mind.

    Advice to Management

    Praise CSRs more often. They're really the backbone of the store. Who do the grunt work.
