dont work for this company, if you do, forget about holidays with family. Worst company to work for if youre a family and friends person.
Assistant Leader (Current Employee) –  Davie, FLAugust 7, 2018
This is the worst company when it comes to employees and time off. Theyre open 24/7 365. They don't care about their employees, its all about making money for the company. No social life outside of amscot, no lunch breaks, no sick days.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Forget about weekends and holidays.

Overworked and stressful
Fsa (Former Employee) –  FloridaAugust 1, 2018
Amscot is a company where you can work your butt off and you won't be recognized for it at all. However make a mistake and they will definitely see that and be on you about the situation. Depending on the severity of the problem you might even get let go on the spot. You don't get any sick days at all. So don't miss a day especially on the first week of the month or you'll get put on probation for 12months or get even let go. You get conversion hours for your vacation after a whole year of being with the company? Which means depending when you get hired that defines how many days you'll get so you probably won't even get a whole week for your vacation. The schedule changed every single time even though it was posted for 2 weeks. No matter what plans, appointments you had it don't matter the schedule changed and that was final. Also you could do as little as 4 hours one day and another day 13 hours shifts literally seeing the sun rising and the sunset setting. Stuck in a building without being able to go out for any reason until your shift is over. They always relocate you as well so there's no chance for you to get comfortable with the amscot your at because that could change from one day to the other without warning. Would not recommend for anyone who values their time.

Good pay, but not family friendly
Co-Manager (Former Employee) –  Tarpon Springs, FLJuly 23, 2018
This job was a good job as far as learning different skills and it paid well. However, they did not give sick days and only 1 week of vacation per year until 5 years and then there was a certain way you had to take it. This job is not family friendly. The hours are rough and not flexible, and the turn-over rate is high because of the stress of the job.

Just don't do it
Associate, Co-Leader (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLJuly 23, 2018
Very stressful. Customers can range for wonderful to insane. No sense of culture. Employees are actually discouraged from forming any friendships with co-workers, customers or even 3rd party vendors. You have no life but Amscot.

Average
Financial Services Associate (Former Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLJuly 12, 2018
If this is a first job it may be a good fit. Overall experience was poor and the people running the company seem to be massively disconnected from the issues that that lower level employees experience on a daily basis. Best thing for me was getting an exit interview to express my concerns. Branch managers are not educated and do not have adequate experience being in charge of anything other than working for the company for 5+ years.
Pros
Flexible Shifts
Cons
Lots of uneducated people in charge

Amscot Its Okay
Co Leader (Former Employee) –  St. Petersburg, FLJuly 8, 2018
It was overall positive, face paced. The training is good enough to get you going, the hours are long but its over time! No dedicated time for breaks, but paid lunches and incentives. Hectic. If you have the time to give to Amscot, they will take it gladly.
Pros
Incentives
Cons
No dedicated breaks

Avoid Amscot
Branch Manager (Former Employee) –  Sarasota, FLJuly 2, 2018
For a customer service job, they pay above average. This is the only plus. There is no set work schedule until you hit at least Co-leader level. Your family is second, the business is first. There are no exceptions.
Pros
Compensation
Cons
Everything else

Interesting environment
Branch Manager (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLJune 27, 2018
We had a lot of interesting customers. Business owners that did not have banks but needed to cash large checks, young and old customers that did not have a bank and needed to cash checks or do a payday advance. I learned that there is a completely different culture than I had ever been exposed too. The managers and owners were enjoyable and very pleasant. The hard part was having to terminate employees. The most enjoyable part was the Management.
Pros
Amscot offered incentives for sales goals, collections, etc. Like free lunches, prizes like cash, video games etc.
Cons
No, lunches, no sick time, locked in for the duration and could not leave.

Decent place to work for pay
Financial Services Associate (Current Employee) –  Lake Wales, FLJune 19, 2018
Compared to my previous employer, Amscot is fun to work for and it's great experience. There's plenty of room for advancement and Amscot will definitely motivate you to do your best! Although I have heard that some branch leaders can be pretty nasty, the ones I've had so far have been very helpful and make it a fun place to work. They don't make you feel like it's the end of the world if you make a mistake as long as you're honest, learn from the mistakes, and try your best. The days get long on slow days and sometimes you could work over 12 hours with 1 break, but as long as you stay positive you will be ok. Shifts are typically rotating 7-9 hours with 1 week day off and 1 weekend day off, but could be longer or shorter. The reason why I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the days with longer shifts and you have to have open availability at all times and don't typically work around college schedules but maybe just 1 class.
Pros
Decent pay, friendly coworkers, fun place to work
Cons
Short breaks, sometimes long shifts, have to have open availability

I liked Amscot but I didn’t like being locked in doors all day
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Riverview, FLMay 23, 2018
Amscot is a good company to work for provide that you were ok with being locked in one place for the day/shift. I went stir crazy because I felt like I was a fish in a fish bowl all day.

Good pay, horrible work environment
Financial Service Associate (Former Employee) –  Seffner, FLMay 5, 2018
If you get placed in a very busy branch like I did you are likely to hate your job. The overtime and pay is great! But expect to be at work way more than at home. I got used to working 12 hour shifts with no breaks or very rushed breaks. If you are a workoholic you will love this job!
Pros
Pay, overtime
Cons
long shift, little to no breaks, mandatory overtime.
