Easy job, difficult schedule
Financial service associate (Former Employee), St Petersburg, FlApril 13, 2014
It was easy to learn everything I needed to work with. Management was average. Co-workers hardworking. Hardest part of the job was working til midnight and all different shifts. The most enjoyable part of the job was good pay.

Hated It!
Financial Services Associate (Former Employee), Tampa, FLApril 3, 2014
Pros: pay
Cons: everything else!
Let me just be honest with you! The pay and the amount of hours you receive at Amscot is about the only decent thing about the company. The management is horrible and acts unprofessional, you are on their schedule which means you have no time for your personal life (not even school), you are standing for long periods of time (you're lucky if you get – more... a lunch break), not to mention have to continuously deal with extremely rude customers. Amscot basically expects you to give your life over to them. They treat the employees like slaves and use pay as compensation for it. It's very easy to advance in the company, which is a plus as well. – less

Amscot
Overnight Leader (Former Employee), OrlandoMarch 26, 2014
Pros: great pay
Cons: long hours, expect not to have a life
Its a high paying job, good benefits and great people to work with. But the company itself is an abusement of middle-class working people. The branches don't close, open 7days a week, if its a slow branch your pretty much stuck with the schedule you have. So if an emergency occurs its hard to call off of work, knowing that you might get written up or – more... fired. – less

The worst place ever to work for, no ethics what so ever!!!
Financial Service Associate (Current Employee), Orlando, FLDecember 6, 2013
Pros: money
Cons: upper management are terrible
It is a very stressful work environment, is not a stable job it is only a temporary thing. Upper management does not care and they have non managerial ethics. They lie and cheat to get their way and bonuses. I am very dissatisfied with the company.

the most stressfl job ever
Financial Associate (Former Employee), Kissimmee, FlAugust 26, 2013
Pros: good pay
Cons: everything else
I worked at this company for only a month. At the end of my training I quit. I got so stressed out that I could not even sleep at night. Long hours, rude customers. The branch leader was nice but the district leader was horrible. If you work here you can't have a normal life. Amscot comes first. Very, very stressful environment. They want to forced – more... you to sell things that customers don't need. As a trainee you are not allowed to make mistakes. They expect too much from their associates. – less

not a good place to invest your time or your skills
Assistant manager (Former Employee), orlandoJuly 25, 2013
Pros: pay good
Cons: no breaks, no life, no further education, dealing with a lot of lower class uneducated people unfortunatetly
Amscot promised you career advance, good pay, benefits, however in order to advance you have to sacrifice your family time, work long hours with little or not break at all, certain managers were not respectful at all. they pay good money but you have to work very hard, clean the place, long hours, and they are constantly changing policies, is a huge – more... miscommunication from top managers and you can feel confused. you also have to target percentage on losses and if your are not up to standards due because people don't have money to pay back or because people simple cancel their accounts, you are still responsible for all of that even though those situations gets off your hands. Very stressful. you can get fired for even a complain from a customer. pretty much the job is not secure at all. – less

Great employees but not much balance between work and personal life
Training Branch Leader (Former Employee), Largo, FLNovember 14, 2012
Pros: promote from within, good pay
Cons: no breaks, breakfast, lunch, or dinner
As a Branch Leader you must work a minimum of 55 hours a week and the needs of the company come first. You can sometimes work up to 70 plus hours a week. If you work hard and have a good work ethic they are willing to reward you for it. The employees are terrific and everyone works together as a team to get the job done. The hardest part is the amount – more... of commitment you must give. They do not have a good balance between personal life and work. – less

Fast track career path.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Kissimmee, FLSeptember 19, 2012
Pros: awesome pay.
Cons: could not leave the store to go anywhere until shift was over. lots of back to back shifts, extremely long hours.
Loved working for Amscot. They offered great wages and you could advance quickly. Since I worked at the same location for 3 years, I was able to establish a relationship with almost 100% of the clientele. The hardest part was adjusting to being in an enclosed space for all the duration of your shift. For security reasons you were not allowed to leave – more... the secured area until your scheduled time was up which meant you could not stretch your legs, take a breath of fresh air or step out for lunch. It could get pretty hectic but it was very organized at the same time. You always had the support of the Clearing Center to approve/decline transactions. They also asked for you NOT to have a second job or school as they required a flexible availability from 6am to 11pm. Which somewhat compensated with the pay but it also meant that you would have to work back to back shifts or 14 hours. Amscot also terminated employment once you reached about a 3yr term with them and conducted job fairs recruting employees for lesser pay. – less

worst company I have ever worked for
Financial Services Associate (Former Employee), Leesburg, FLMay 8, 2012
during the interview process, a lot of necessary information about the duties and responsibilities were not disclosed.
no breaks and you were on your feet all day.
everyone complained about knee pain and hip pain.
sometimes you were scheduled for a 13 hour day.
did not work a full 40 hours for the week.

– May 26, 2013

I also use to wok for Amscott and it sounds like they have not change their work ethics. When I went for training, I was almost accused of cheating because me and this other girl that sat with me on the final test both received 100%. When I was assigned a facility, it was so small, both men & women employees had to share the same bathroom. We were not allowed to go anywhere durring breaks and lunches, and if you were in the middle of your break or lunch and they started to get busy, you were expected to stop eating and help out until thet were not busy anymore. I also remember durring slow times, they would cut your hours from 40 down to almost 33-35 per week. When I called HR about this, they told me that Amscott is considered retail not a financial facility.
