Stressful and not worth the money in the end
Financial Services Associate (Former Employee) –  Orange City, FLNovember 29, 2017
While the pay was nice, there's no balance for an outside life, management clearly plays favorites at any branch, and being locked in a box isn't worth it. Some days your shifts are 4 hours, other days you're working a 12-14 hour day with just you and a manager. Training was detailed and intense which was great, but afterwards, you're on your own. They were quick to belittle you for what you've done wrong but never wanted to help correct it.
Cons
No breaks, lack of support from management, no work/life balance

Takes up a lot of your time...
Manager (Current Employee) –  Brandon, FLNovember 9, 2017
Time consuming, long work days, limited vacation time. Customers are rude, managers are poor at managing their associates. Constant moving around from branch to branch depending.

Large cash handling
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLNovember 7, 2017
Accuracy is key. Following all steps of service as well as security. It can become a little overwhelming when all steps are added up. Almost everything you do has a procedure, from entering the building to taking breaks or closing.
Pros
Job security
Cons
Once you arrive you can not leave until your shift is over. Including on break

Well paid and fast pace
Assistant Leader (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLOctober 21, 2017
I've learned a lot on how to manage a store and keep organized while working with Amscot. The downfall was the former manager and how she lacked fairness when it came to scheduling. The associates were overworked.
Pros
great pay and overtime
Cons
over worked unnecessarily

Fast paced and demanding
Leader (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLOctober 19, 2017
I worked for the company for almost 6 years and I felt I lost 6 years of my life. Sure the pay is good and for the most part it is a livable wage but you sell your life to them in the mean time. The schedule changes on a regular basis so you can never plan anything outside work. Another thing with the schedule is they will schedule for a 16 hour shift but give you some 4 hours shifts so you never hit overtime. Management will relocate you to other branches without even asking you, my last year I worked at 4 different locations. The branch leaders are always stressed and can hardly help you at the windows even at peak busy times because they are always on the phone with their calls. At most busy locations the 30 minuet break they promise you for lunch will never happen. God forbid you ask for some personal time or a sick day cause if you don’t bring a doctors note chances are you will be let go. Also there is a no line policy at the widows and customers go wherever so you are moving around, on your feet, bumping into fellow associates, in a confusing state all day long. It can becomes mad chaos during busy times. It was the worst working experience of my life and the only reason I stuck around for so long was cause I had goals in life and the pay helped me get there.
Pros
The pay
Cons
Long hours, schedule changes, stressful environment, micro management

Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLOctober 6, 2017
It’s a job you will have to be patient with. The hours are crazy. Dealing with the people is very crazy. Not able to go out for lunch or break. No real lunch time. Have to work through your lunch time and breaktime

Assitant Leader (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLSeptember 25, 2017
Amscot is very well-structured company . Top management and HR are open minded to new ideas and react quickly to complaints and grievances . The job is little bit physically demanding. work place can be very fast-paced, especially at the beginning of the month. it requires a lot of focus and attention to the details. its definitely not 9 to 5 type of job.
Pros
Decent pay. fast advancement
Cons
Some Customers can be tough to deal with .

Word Hard
Finance Associate (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLAugust 15, 2017
The good thing about this job is that you learn, the quiz and test you on everything to make sure you have learned what you needed to know. The only thing that bothered me were the schedules they were all over the place and you could be called in with a very short time notice.

Not with the recruiter signed you up for
Financial Services Associate (Current Employee) –  Melbourne, FLJuly 22, 2017
One day you can have a 4hr shift other days 14hr. Management spends 1/2 their day with personal phone calls even when it's busy.
Amscot wants worker bees who want to be promoted but doesn't help their associates advance.
There is no personal life outside working for this company as your schedule changed even after it's posted.
Managers give themselves OT each week but if you have 38 hours and worked over 7 min you have to cut it.
Some days you don't get a lunch break but others take 3-4 breaks.
Managers play favorites.
VERY high turnaround as selective as amscot is in the hiring, once people realize what the job actually is most quit.
Pros
When approved OT, publix gift cards (when earned)
Cons
No breaks, scheduling, little social life

Horrible
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Bradenton, FLJuly 17, 2017
Never will I ever work for a company such as Amscot. I was 8 months pregnant working over 45 hours a week at times no days off. They will make you work by yourself and no help. It gets overwhelming. I wouldn't recommend this job to ANYONE!!!! Management is not always there to help. Thumbs down.
Pros
Starting Pay
Cons
No breaks, Extremely rude customers, Can't leave the property, No help from management
