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

    Pros

    Free Healthcare, On site nurse. Cater to diversity.

    Cons

    The HR department is not a separate location, Everybody talks so if you are in HR for discipline, you can count on other people knowing your business. My supervisor went to Online, He was sharp but they move the good ones. Get used to sob stories as the interest rate is 297.50%.....How is that legal? Call it a convenience fee and then you can feel better about yourself that it is not predatory lending. Reviews...

      Pros

      Some jobs you are paid/overpaid very well. Right now the company is spending a lot of money on talent, so you may find a great job with great pay. That said, it is an incredibly unstable place, culturally and otherwise. So it could be short lived.

      Cons

      Absolute complete and total obsession with image and reputation, particularly by the "CEO". The vast majority of reviews on Indeed are written at the 30-day orientation session on company owned computers with fake Gmail accounts set up by HR staff. It can be confirmed by simply looking at the dates, why are there are all of a sudden 10-15 terrific reviews on a single day? Because that's the day of the 30 day class...

      Advice to Management

      Stop with the BS and all of the image related propaganda. It is really cult level and quite fake. Just run the company, make a profit and treat your people well. Telling everyone you are doing that doesn't make it so. If you put that much effort into the business and the people, it would actually be a good company.

      Pros

      This is a family owned business based out of Nashville. They believe in giving back to the employees. Pay is good for the responsibility. I am cared for both as a person and a employee.

      Cons

      Its not much of a trade off but would like to have more growth opportunities. Most growth is in a different area of the state. I am unable to move at this time.

      Pros

      Nice pay for recent graduates.

      Cons

      Family owned business and all the covert meanings you can imagine. Sometimes overtly in a very unprofessional manner. Don't be fooled by these reviews. All employees are strongly suggested to write reviews while someone in training observes and one is a family member of the owner. This is a high rate interest loan that caters to the poor who have nowhere else to go. Yes, that means that they provide a service, but...

      Advice to Management

      Surrender to a management company and family owners and family employees stay at home. Don't overstate your numbers of hires. Your 1,000+++ employees are mainly due to turnover. Mike, start speaking to your employees. It would be nice if you were introduced to the new hire class. After that, be decent enough to speak when you are walking around the building. Additionally, stop parking in the spots that you threaten everyone...

      I worked at Advance Financial full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      1. If you work hard and are a valuable employee, there are so many ways to move up either into management or into the corporate office. Just know this can take years, but definitely is possible! 2. I liked my manager and upper management. 3. The company pays you to volunteer for 40 hours in the year. They do care about charity work. 4. The starting pay is great. Ask for the maximum.

      Cons

      1. The insurance is free, but it isn't that great. Very high deductible. 2. 24/7 means, 24/7. You will have to work some holidays, and even as a daytime teller will have to work til 11pm or midnight. Depending on your manager, all your shifts may be like that. 3. I found that the company was nit-picky over being a couple minutes late sometimes, but employees who called out continuously were not punished or held accountable....

      Advice to Management

      Close on holidays. Hard to promote yourselves for instilling a work/life balance when you are open every holiday and make employees work. Offer more vacation days. This is not a traditional retail job. Stores should be able to give employees set schedules, and let employees trade shifts.
