terrible place to work unless you are someone who also takes out payday loans.
Pros: if you like to work alone you get a lot of that.
Cons: the management, the customers, the raises (if you get one) the training....
From the start it's bad. They don't train the trainers. Their idea of training is to stick you with whomever is doing best in sales, because really that's all they care about. So even if that person has the worst customer service, doesn't follow guidelines or laws, talks badly about all the other employees or is a terrible person in general, it doesn't – more... matter because that is who will be training you.
The upper management is sleazy and two faced. Always watching their own back and having no qualms with throwing lower employees under the bus. This includes Human Resources. Trust No One!
They say they don't have high turnover but we were ALWAYS short handed and ALWAYS hiring. So they're also liars.
There is no set breaks. You are just suppose to use the bathroom and eat in between customers. Which, for some locations isn't a problem. But if you are good at your job they will put you in a super busy location where you literally don't get 5 minutes to yourself. Some shifts are 12+ hours long so it's very easy to get burned out quickly.
There are NO cameras in any of the locations. There ARE attempted robberies. Does that make any sense???
Some of the customers are quite frankly, the lowest forms of life on earth. Some are great, some are normal people, but those won't be the ones you remember.
Most of the co-workers are ok but you never see them. I worked with a 'training' manager on one of my first days and she stole $100 from my register. Of course there are NO cameras, so I couldn't prove anything and had to take the shortage on my record.
If you are a decent person you will not last long at this job.
On the plus side if you've only lived in nice areas and have only frequented respectable places this job is a good life lesson.It will open your eyes to the real world around you that you though only existed on tv. It will make you guarded, if not jaded, because someone is always ready to screw you over and sadly, I don't just mean the customers trying to scam a few bucks.
But hey, If you are desperate for a job, they will hire just about anyone. – less
