I have been working at Advance America full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Consistent full time hours, good security measures for employes, Gaining a lot of experience dealing with money, checks, and banking related activities.

Cons

Dealing with large amounts of money, mandatory working Friday and Saturday, frequently working alone from open to close, no bonus incentive for customer service representatives for meeting budget every month; only managers and higher ups receive bonus's.

Advice to Management

No matter how busy or slow the store might be there should always be two people working at all times for both effective teamwork and personal safety.

    I worked at Advance America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My shift started late enough to get my kids off to school; it's an easy job, not demanding at all, not much thinking required. The manager I worked with was amazing and I was happy to see her each day.

    Cons

    It's very much an entry-level, revolving door job; employees are treated like numbers; doesn't pay enough to pay my bills; no room for advancement, professional growth, or sharing of ideas and suggestions. The store is a very bare-bones operation. Very repititious and boring, no challenges. Mileage reimbursement didn't even compensate the cost of starting my car up (25-cents per mile)

    Advice to Management

    I felt like I didn't matter in the scheme of things. The pay was low, the PPO health insurance was so expensive, mileage reimbursed at 25-cents per mile. Really? Have you seen the cost of gas?
