Worst place to work for
CSR (Former Employee) –  Orangeville, ON22 March 2016
Branch manager steal hours. Say they are working when they are not. You may end up working 16 hr days because your manager decided not to show up. You don't get paid for those 16 hr days, manager lies said it never happened. Manager can go into the computer system and change your hours and theirs to make it look like they were there and your the lier. Manager disrespects employees by telling clients how aweful their employees are. For what little pay you make you are expected to be on call all the time. Not allowed to leave secured area or take breaks.
If your ever sick, manager calls and calls all day long because they don't believe you. Calls and hangs up, calls and hangs up. Will continue to call until you finally pick up. Unstable place to work.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours with no pay, disrepected, very unhealthy place to work

Former BM.
Branch Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON17 February 2016
A backward organization/ company where there are far too many long term entitled DM's, AVP's, & RVP's. The USA head office has no idea what happens in Canada, so when they arrive it's "all for show factor"....lots of favoritism and nepotism among the ranks.
Smart, strong DM's either quit or are forced to leave, leaving the branches with second string DM's who are "the chosen lifers".
Long days, no breaks, collection calls are a MUST or you are berated, a hostile working environment where the BM is just a title not a real function.
Pros
a reasonable pension plan.
Cons
long hours, no recognition, no DM support when you really need it.

If you want to have panic attack, stroke, meet some violent customers and inhumane Managers, District Managers and Top brass execs. then this is it
SENIOR CSR WORKING MORETHAN 10 YEARS (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON24 May 2015
Violent customers, very low salary, managers and district managers are rude. Almost everyday you will encounter CRIMINALS like FRAUDSTERS, MONEY LAUNDERERS, CRACKED HEADS. NO SUPPORT FROM UPPER MANAGEMENT ALL THEY WANT IS MONEY. NO BREAKS ALWAYS / MOSTLY WORKING ONLY BY YOURSELF LIKE YOU WERE DETAINED IN PRISON OR RATHER ALCATRAZ. WILL NOT RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY TO ANYONE.
Pros
NOTHING TO SAY HERE NO PROS AT ALL BAD COMPANY MY FRIEND
Cons
EVERYTHING THAT YOU WOULD THINK A BAD ADJECTIVE

It is a fun place to work
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Burlington, Ontario5 November 2013
Company is totally focused to give the best Customer Service experience. Training and security are top priorities. Dedicated to giving the best customer service experience. The company is always evolving. Hardest part for me was closing the store. Most enjoyable is the atmosphere which is upbeat and emphatic in every sense. Management and coworkers are attentive and willing to adjust schedules to fit your lifestyle. I learned a different type of banking, that works for the fast paced companies needing their cheques cashed now, not in 5 to 10 days.
Pros
Happy atmosphere and management who listen. Great security.
Cons
Hours vary from store to store. Example4 1/2 hr shift, can become a 6 hr shift.

Dynamic and flexible workplace
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB8 September 2013
A typical day at wok is opening the store in the morning, dual-custodying the cash in store, and helping customers as they come in. In-between helping customers, you make collection calls and courtesy calls. When your co-worker comes on, you again custody all cash and print out all of your reports for the day.
The hardest part of the job is being alone all day, and since only one person works at a time you only have a handful of co-workers.
What this job taught be though is independent time-management, strong cash-handling skills, and how to cross-sell to clients and customers with a range of products.
Pros
Flexible dress code, friendly/laid-back atmosphere
Cons
Working alone, cannot promise full-time hours

Slavery from Managers, District Managers to top brass management alre all Devils
Customer Service Rep. (Current Employee) –  Ontario, Downtown6 January 2013
I am currently working as a CSR in the Downtown area in Ontario, i guess the only advise i can share with you is STAY away from this company. Some Branch Managers and District Managers will punish you to work like you never get exhausted. Poor ledearship, no problem to National Mart Company breaking labour laws (no breaks, even if you worked straight 16hrs in a shift would never pay you in accordance with esa standards, From branch managers to district managers they are EVIL!!! Head office staff would love to give tihS to their store staff (csr), they can do whatever they want due to the fact this company doesn't have union to bargain the needs and wants of their employees (grievances!!!). Expect to work by your self everyday and fight for your dear life against their rude customers. In the event of customer complaint, expect some tihS from your DIPUTS District Manager especially nowadays Great and respected DM's are no longer working in this company so, you will hear some DIPUTS sermons from a High School Graduate DM.

In order to gain respect, National Money Mart BM's, DM's to upper lever Management, You must Practice what you Preach!!! You TOIDI upper level management must learn how to work on Till your forecasted targets are only imaginary be realistic!!! This company is full of cross selling diputS products to diputS individual. Following their Robotic citoidi GUEST sequence will make your day very pathetic!!!

diputS Bosses
No support from upper management level
No problem breaking labour laws
Prepare for panic attack
Rude customers
Will make your life miserable
Will lead
  more... you to become hateful
and the end of your shift YOU DONT EVEN KNOW HOW TO RESPECT YOUR SELF... :( I will end my connection from this company soon... but need to find more ways to get them...

p.s. pls. read in reverse toidi, diputS as it is not allowed to post the natural and norm ways to describe my company National Money Mart.
