Marketing Assistant (Current Employee), Edmonton, AB – May 20, 2014
Currently Cash Store Financial is under bankruptcy protection. Their business practices are under investigation and it has now become a moral issue for me. There are a number of wonderful people here but I want to be able to tell people proudly where I work.
Would NEVER recommend this company. Not even to my worst enemy.
Financial Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Interior, BC – February 26, 2014
This is the company of a million lies.
They will tell you they will hire you full-time and then give you 20-30 hours. They tell you that there is room for advancement and that they LOVE to promote from within and then they will over look you - no matter how hard you work and hire people with no experience to be your boss. You will never get a raise – more... no matter what you do to prove yourself. They will hire new people on at the same wage as you and not rectify your pay. I would honestly NEVER suggest this company to anyone. – less
Loans Advisor (Former Employee), Edson, AB – October 7, 2013
Pros: helping people
Cons: lots of quiet time during the day
In this position you are able to help people in a poor financial situation. The pay is very low and as a result the high turn over rate exists. Very little corporate support and no room for advancement.
Senior Accountant (Current Employee), Edmonton AB – October 2, 2013
Pros: office space
Cons: long hour
Iam currently working in their corporate office feel like it was my wrong choice, bad management , long working hour, no appreciation though they have so called bonus system but it's not for all. I won't recommend any body to join here.
managing daily operation with cash distribution and collections
Branch Manager (Current Employee), London, ON – August 5, 2013
Pros: bonus incentives, good benefits
Cons: long hours, abusive customers
A typical day includes balancing daily transactions, answering phones, making collection and marketing calls, assisting customers with their financial needs and managing a branch. I have learned to be patient and understanding. I have also learned how to manage my staff and produce a profitable branch. The management is very approachable and easy to – more... talk to while being effective. The branches usually consist of 3-4 people. My branch works well together and while keeping a professional manner. The hardest part of my job is dealing with the finances of other people and trying to be understanding while also keeping the best interest of the company in mind. The best part of my job is meeting people of all different backgrounds and being able to help them in times of need. – less
FCSR (Current Employee), Edmonton Ab – July 29, 2013
Pros: meeting new and interesting people, building relationships with clients
Cons: open 7 days a week, extra work that my boss collected bonus for, long hours, no overtime pay if asked to do so
The Cash Store was an alright place to work. Other than there low paying wages and not very good management. Other than that I loved working with my co-workers and seeing the different kind of people that came in and out everyday. It was a life experience working at the cash store and also an eye opener to how much better I needed to be appreciated – more... and treated in the work place. I am searching for new work and would like to be brought into a place where I will be treated equally and appreciated for the work that I do. – less
