    I worked at Sun Loan Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great training, good mileage reimbursement, good benefits, ancentives to hit goals, can be exciting and upbeat. Get lots of over time. Great start up career.

    Cons

    Goals unattainable, micro managing, long hours, field visiting customers, collections, vacations denied, can be very exhausting. Things Change frequently. It's all about team work so if you don't have a good team it can fall apart easily.

    Advice to Management

    Don't exhaust your employees.

    I have been working at Sun Loan Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly environment
    Treats employees well
    Knows their employee's worth and shows it
    Paid trips for work
    Good starting pay
    Wonderful customers
    Great insurance and benefits
    Team-oriented offices
    Everyone knows everyone and is super friendly
    Nice dress code
    Great goal incentives

    Cons

    Making collections calls is hard to get used to, but once you do you will learn to love it!
    Sometimes goals set by supervisors can be tough to complete. You don't get to pick when you go out of town for training, but you can pick where (either Nashville or San Antonio)

    Sometimes customers can be rude when you're trying to collect from them, but they tend to lighten up when you get to talking to them.

    Advice to Management

    Make delinquency goals a little more realistic and feasible for employee's to accomplish and realize "you can't get blood from a turnip" If someone doesn't want to pay, you can't legally force them to do so and getting pressured to collect from those people lowers morale.

    Pros

    Loved working with the customers

    Cons

    Management can get very pushy and demanding trying to get numbers. Going out chasing, going to peoples homes/jobs asking for payment wasn't something i liked.

    I worked at Sun Loan Company (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Given the autonomy to make decisions and run branch as long as following company policies and laws. Recognition from home office makes employees feel valued and appreciated. Continuous training available if needed.

    Cons

    Branch level employees not always treated with respect. Higher ups not held accountable for their actions. Supervisors felt they could speak to employees in a very disrespectful manner. No flexibility in scheduling.

    Advice to Management

    Inspect more on a supervisory level. Hold them to a higher standard. Treat employees with more respect and not as they are expendable.

    Pros

    Repeat Customers were nice. Got to get out of the office for a few hours a week. Attending employee conferences were fun. Can be interesting

    Cons

    Repetitive. Management was horrible. Had a brand new manager that got promoted after i had already started and they fired they last one for yelling at me. expect you to finish the call routes regardless if you have people in the office and you are busy all day. constant pressure to hit goals even if they are not realistic for the month

    Advice to Management

    Do not make the store and employees pay for the customer filing bankruptcy. at that point the employee has done everything they possibly can to collect
