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

Pros

Easy Work
Good Training
Mostly Fun Customers

Cons

Unless you are a center manager, your pay is almost minimum wage.
District Managers (DDOs) can make or break the atmosphere.
Somewhat pushy to meet sales goals for cross-selling.
Pre-paid card and any services related to it are crap and suck money out of people already in need of extra cash.

Advice to Management

Get better DDOs. I was a CSR and Assistant Manager, but I am an extremely intelligent person and could have done the DDO job much better than most.
Get rid of that CRAP PRE-PAID NETSPEND CARD.
That's all, it was a nice place to work really. Depends on who your managers are, though, I am sure.

    Leadership, salary, training, company values; The company does an excellent job at building the team infrastructure.

    Cons

    There aren't many cons here at CSS. The only con that comes to mind is the city of Spartanburg; it is a growing city, but it is growing at a slow rate.
