The good, the bad and the ugly
Customer/Financial Service Rep (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONApril 15, 2015
Pros: Friendly co-workers, decent hours, clean up to date store fixtures
Cons: Management, power hungry supervisors and hagglers
The good: Amazing place to work if you want to find a good deal for some used items. I found it to be really fun when buying and selling items to and from customers. The people were generally pretty easy going and the staff were equally so.

The bad: Having to chase people on the PDL side of things for over due loans and having to hear the same excuses every week or having them avoid you all together. Inconsistency when buying items. Staff had a range of minimum and maximum prices they could buy for and the numbers fluxuated all the time since there was such a broad range.

The ugly: Management was the worst of all. The district manager was on a power trip and usually showed up at your store to sit in the back room on their computer all day. Never any suggestions on how to better run the store. Some of the store managers were just as bad. Punishing new employees for mistakes by write ups.

All in all the good made up for the bad most days. Sadly most of the stores have closed now. Probably because they weren't consistent in communications with their employees and the ups and downs in the pricing when buying and selling items.

A pretty decent place to work
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), St. Catharines, ONMarch 6, 2015
Pros: easy
Cons: bad manager
My time at Cash Converters was pretty good. Our manager quit and was never replaced and no employee was moved up to replace her. That created some issues.

productive place to work with future advancements as a possibility
Personal Finance Specialist (Current Employee), Toronto, ONJune 7, 2013
Pros: great co workers, location is somewhat close to home
Cons: dealing with customers that aren't always understanding about products/loans
I currently work as a financial CSR and I absolutely love it. Great team, always learning something new and meeting great clients on a daily basis. Feels more like a social outing than actual work, which is the best part, always friendly faces/. I deal with pay day loans and such, so handling money is a task i deal with everyday and anything that I can do to help out the retail side, which i am cross trained for.

Fun workplace
Jewellery Specialist (Current Employee), Toronto, OntarioJanuary 10, 2013
Pros: fun environment
Cons: schedule not flexible
Typical day at work involves greeting customers, selling items, buying merchandise, negotiating prices, and daily store maintenance. This workplace allowed me to gain important customer service skills such as dealing with a wide variety of people and problems. The hardest part of the job is negotiation and turning people down for their items they wish to sell. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with co-workers and discovering new types of merchandise and people everyday.

A Day of work at cash converters
Assistant manager (Current Employee), midland and ellesmereJanuary 9, 2013
Pros: very laid back job
Cons: constant 12 hour shifts
I come in to work and do my opening duties.
I typically buy products off customers every day. I learned to meet at a fair ground for purchasing products off customers.
I have made some great friends with co workers and the hardest part of my job would be to not offer a price that meets someone's expectations.

Buyer (Former Employee), BramptonSeptember 26, 2012
Pros: learning, good hours, good coworkers
In a typical day at work I would research product information and pricing interact with customer in both a buying and selling role, what I learned was how to explain to people the value in something in both negotiating buying and selling prices. Management is supportive and there is opportunity for advancement.
