    I have been working at Advance Financial full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Environment and atmosphere is very friendly and professional not only with customers but employees as well
    supportive management team that's clear with training and expectations
    competitive pay
    fun learning and competitive games during the day that help motivate you in the day and help you learn

    Cons

    none so far, this is the best company I've worked for in my entire career. I love the difference here!

    Advice to Management

    I'd like to see more employees promoted from within in situations where supervisors are expected to be knowledgeable of company policies and procedures as opposed to bringing in supervisors from other companies because the culture is different here (which is a good thing). I've noticed in most instances seasoned AF employees are more helpful that the newer supervisors that are not as seasoned within AF.

    Pros

    Good pay good benefits staff is nice at some stores.

    Cons

    You will not get a bounce even if you are the top store in company. Corporate does not care about stores outside of Nashville. Also the hours are 7-4, 3:30 -12, or 9:30 to 8 unless you get lucky and get a mid shift for 10-7. No real way to move up in the company at all only seen a handful of people move up in to a manager position in years.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management listen to the CSRs that actually do the work and stop focusing on things that don't matter like if we highlighted something or if we got a customer to verify the email.

    Pros

    The money, “only reason why I tried it out” if you have time to spend it that is. Good healthcare and benefits as well.

    Cons

    This is not helping people. It is honestly incredibly immoral to me and I’m looking elsewhere for employment. The customer base will have you ready to leave a few weeks in. Not trying to be mean but it’s just the way it is. Advance financial is not just profiting off of the poor they are destroying their lives one customary fee/day at a time plain and simple. Huge mistake trying it out. They act as if they are helping people but jeez come on. You really think you are helping people with your interest rate? It’s sad and shouldn’t be allowed. So called “Christians” acting like they are doing a selfless deed to the community. I even worked on Christmas for these fools. Staying open on Christmas profiting off of the poor now that’s just the most Christian thing I’ve ever heard. They offer volunteer time paid but make you wear a shirt that says “do you get paid to volunteer?” It’s an oxymoron and incredibly embarrassing for whoever thought of it. I feel bad for these people I truly do.

    Advice to Management

    How do you sleep at night?

    I worked at Advance Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay exceeds any competitor in the industry. I liked the consistency of the overnight schedule. Unlimited overtime is great for holidays and vacations. Benefits were great, healthcare and the 401k matching is excellent.

    Cons

    Working on a day shift there is no set schedule. Scheduling is left to the manager's preferences and has no form of seniority when it comes to vacation and holidays. The culture portrayed at corporate doesn't trickle down to the branch locations.
