I didn't have a problem with working alone or the long hours. Longer hours gave me an extra day off. There is no lunch break, you eat when you can, but you know all this when you are hired. The problem is that the employees are held responsible for things beyond their control.The people who have given Ace a good review probably worked at stores in states that don't offer payday loans. Some states only offer check cashing, some stores only process bill pay or buy gold or sell insurance. The problem is with payday and title loans and the way we were treated in general by the district manager and regional vice president. Everything is about the numbers, who is paying back compared to how many loans have been processed. The employees don't make the credit decisions.You are blamed when customers don't pay, even though you are not allowed to turn them down, you are blamed when they change or don't answer their phones when you are making collection calls, you are dogged if you don't sell enough debit cards, you are constantly threatened with being fired or losing your hours. The stress is unbearable unless you are someone who just doesn't care and can just go get another job easily. The pay is ok, bonuses are a joke, upper management horrible.
