    I worked at Advance Financial full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Larger "small business" with a wide reach in tn. Good pay (for most).

    Cons

    The manager training program is literally non existent. I'm not overreacting, its literally non existant. Each manager, if lucky enough, gets assigned another manager to train how they see fit, and for as long as the availability allows. I had 4 days of manager training, and that was3 months in...

    Advice to Management

    Create an MIT program, have an all-inclusive non-discrimination policy, have more open conversations with all levels of employees. Practice what you preach (friends helping friends).

    "Too much stress for money orders and payday loans"

    I have been working at Advance Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    40 hours paid volunteer time
    Pretty good pay for hourly tellers
    Employer paid health care

    Cons

    24hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year - never close, not even if severe weather warnings are in place, not even if building has been flooded and has water still pooling, not evn if building has been damaged because someone drove their car into it. NEVER CLOSE

    Huge turnover means constantly short staffed, constantly having to come in early, stay late, or work extra shifts.

    Poor communication from Senior management down. Store managers often don't have the answers needed and there isn't a clear way to find the answers. Corporate preaches about having open door policy but then either take forever to answer or make you feel dumb for asking a question. Also a lot of time the answer is just "ask your manger"

    Try to justify overworking people with benefits and competitive pay. You might make good money but you will be so overworked you'll never get to spend it.

    Lack of integrity, had a district manager make frequent promises and offers but never delivered on them. Know of an employee that made up a false harassment claim, admitted it was a lie, and still got to keep his job with no repercussions.

    Performance tracking systems are inaccurate but are the only thing your review is determined by,

    Know of a manager that copy and pasted one employee review and gave to her whole team

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to your employees - All the way from Tina to the newest teller.
    And actually communicate don't just forward emails, really tell us what is happening, what is going to happen, and what you expect us to do about it.

    Provide training materials so people have something to reference. Watching someone do transactions for a day then having them watch me for a few days and just telling me what to do isn't teaching. Not all managers know how to train, you should have set trainers that really know how to teach people. We should have an actual procedure handbook that someone can reference if they haven't done something in a while that talks you through exactly how to complete something. Stop half telling someone what to do and then "holding them accountable" when they don't completely do what you want. Tell them what you want, tell them how to do it, give them a reasonable amount of time to do it, make yourself available along the way if they have questions.

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

    Pros

    This company has very good benefits. The pay is good for the job. They offer paid volunteer days, paid vacation days, and paid sick days.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is the hours. I understand that it is a company that is open 24/7, however I believe the schedule could be improved. There are some days where I am scheduled to work alone when the store is too busy for one person.

    Advice to Management

    I think it would be beneficial for the store managers to be trained on how to schedule their employees so that they are not over worked.

    I have been working at Advance Financial full-time

    Pros

    The culture that this company brings is awesome. I've worked at several different places and this company is really striving to do whatever they can to keep their employees happy. The pay is good and there's always some type of activity to do to keep us involved. Not to mention, they pay us to do community service.

    Cons

    The insurance, benefits, or perks are not that great. Deductibles are too high and they don't offer many discounts on other things i.e. cell phones, gym memberships, lower insurance costs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing to help this company grow. Before long, we'll need a new building because we're growing so rapidly. Also, incorporate a more intense training class for new hires to ensure they are well aware of what they are applying for. This will help to ensure we're getting the cream of the crop employees and they know what to expect.
