    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay, decent schedule, good time off

    Cons

    sales goals can be very hard to hit when traffic is slow, they are very particular on what they want as far as numbers. See a lot of movement and turn over as well.

    I worked at OneMain Financial full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -opportunity to earn commission -good vacation off -good medical benefits

    Cons

    -alot of favoritism in branches (if the DM likes you along w/BM youll be fine if not they will ruin your life ) -lack of training towards employees - They allow older employees to take advantage of new employees sales and get away with it (Unfair) -sexiest -They will make sure you feel bad about your performance Comparing you monthly to other coworkers that have been with company for 5+ years .

    Advice to Management

    The company has to learn how to start listening to employees if they want a succesful company . Managemnt within the company sucks all managers seem to think they run the bussiness and can unfarly treat certain employees because of their sex , age , color ...

    I have been working at OneMain Financial full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The employer paid benefits are pretty good if you like that sort of thing. Medical, dental, vision, 401k with 6% match, paid time off. Hourly pay, banker's hours. Every once in a while, if you break company records for sales, you can wear jeans to work for a day.

    Cons

    The incentive pay is pitiful. If you make 150% of your goal, you might clear $200 as a bonus, and that's only if you manage to meet your branch's collections deadlines. Your Branch Manager, District Manager, and Regional Director will tell you that you have "Unlimited earning potential. You control how much you make!", but that couldn't be further from the truth. You will be responsible for your branch's collections...

    Advice to Management

    I am ultimately motivated by money. I know the majority of team members that I've spoke to about incentives feel the same way. No matter how many times you let me wear jeans to work, or put my name in an email telling me I'm a good boy, it will not keep my lights on or feed my family. I'm a professional who puts full effort into everything I do, but deep down, I'm totally resentful of the pay. I made this base annual...

    I worked at OneMain Financial full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun, and fast paced. Great bonus potential and commission.

    Cons

    Long work weeks. Upper management is not professional. They are not fair when it comes to disciplinary actions. I was a top producer & never had a write up. I’m not sure what I did, and no one would tell me. I worked really hard and tried to my best always. I feel like, when you do too well, they target you and try to find problems with your work. I can’t fight my termination because it’s an at will state, but I wish...

    - Paid for mileage - 1 Saturday a month - Benefits

    Cons

    -Some employees that have been here longer try to take advantage of the newer people - you do a lot of stuff for your job title and get paid VERY little - 4 hours of OT is all you get a week -some management sucks - all about numbers - really doesn't care about the employees. - have meetings about selling products or insurance over and over again with the same tools. - do not get full bonuses if your DQ is not in line...
