Pros: Lot of learning
Cons: No or very small bonus
Review results of last day/week, and analyze the P&L reports to determine the course of action.
A typical day at work involved some of these procedures:
Verifying funds, banking, assign drawers/safe, collection calls.
New accounts: application, enter information on system, gather paperwork, create/organize physical file, explain all legal/mandatory documents and contracts, deliver funds.
Marketing of store: calls to inactive accounts, go out with business partners and look for new ways to bring customers in.
Account maintenance: Calls to customers to remind of payments and call past due accounts.
Store closing: deassign drawer, safe, count, balance, deposit, alarm.
I learned to look at the overall business to be able to get to the ultimate goal of profit.
The hardest part of the job was having ideas to improve the system and difficult to make any changes since Advance America is a very big corporation.
The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to build a relationship with business partners and customers.
