    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.

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

    Pros

    Free High Deductible insurance
    Free GYM - before you can utilize, you must attend a class (held once a month), sign a waiver and have your door fab updated,
    40 hours of paid Volunteer hours
    You do accrue time off, but at half of the accrual rate until you have been there a year, You are not paid for Holidays until after a year.
    40 hours of sick time after your initial 30 days

    Cons

    Ever Changing schedules. You know two weeks in advance if you are morning, evening, combo of both, never the same days off. You can have a set schedule in a cal center,
    If in the online department, you are calling customers who have start an online application. You will continue to call these people, until either they complete the app and get an approval, if they ask you to stop calling. Calls are inbound, outbound and on an auto dialer, You can call a customer two or three times a day, Ethical?
    This is high school, they preach, "don't judge, respect" but the management team at this company talks and whispers behind or even in front of people's backs. They do not promote within, or they lie to you about the position, tell you its been filled, but you never see a new person in that department. Ethical?
    Training, they spend an entire day in orientation going over their philosophy on Know Show and Flow, no training manuals, documentation, you sit with a buddy to learn the systems, needed documentation. It is really too much to express.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring outside of the company, you have plenty of seasoned employees who already know the company and have experience. Just because you believe they do not fit into your click. You should spend less time worrying about an "anonymous" survey, that you asked the employees to complete and worry more training new employees.

    I have been working at Advance Financial part-time

    Pros

    The pay is great. They matched my pay from my last employer. Everyone is very helpful and genuinely seem like they want you to exceed. My manager has went out of his way to be sure that I am excelling at my job. Very encouraging. Plus healthcare is paid for by Advance Financial. AND THEY OFFER 40 PAID HOURS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE/ VOLUNTEER WORK! Never worked for a company that offered that. They truly care about the communities they work in.

    Cons

    They don't offer a set schedule for their retail store employees except management. Mandatory employee meetings even if they fall on your days off.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for Advance Financial is just because its a helping hand. I love to help people and with the people I am surrounded by the throw off the same positive vibe that i am looking for.

    Cons

    Cons about working at Advance Financial is the scheduling. You don't have a "set" schedule, but you do get a lot of hours.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to the managers is to losing up and don't be so uptight about things. If i see that you being uptight it will put me in the same mood you are in also. with that being said throw of energy you would want your employees to have!

    Pros

    I work with some AMAZING people. This company really cares about its employees so much better than the last company I worked for. When I started I felt welcomed and already part of the Advance Financial family. My training went great they make sure you learn about the products you sell before letting you start selling the item so you know what you are doing.

    Cons

    Not a set schedule but nothing too major..its something you can deal with.

    Advice to Management

    None. You do an amazing job.
