This job will stain your soul. In fact, avoid working in any payday loans industry at all costs.
I was required to work 8 to 2 - 3 PM, leave for 3 hours, and come back and close from 6 - 9 PM - Monday through Friday. I was abused by the Regional Manager who made me feel awful for taking my breaks. I was not paid for my overtime I worked.
There was minimal security. Customers threatened me bodily harm and there was nothing there to prevent them from doing so if they had gone through with it.
They take advantage of people on AISH, CPP, and anyone else they can for money.
You will deal with people in their darkest moments and it will effect you emotionally. You will have to deny someone a loan who has tears in their eyes. You will have to automatically remove funds from someones account when their rent is due - only to deal with them screaming in your face later to put it back when you can't.
Even though I learned things while I was here, I would never work here, or in this industry again.
