Manager (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 15 June 2018
My typical day ran for about ten hours, six days a week. I learned various aspects of government procedure regarding lending as well as collecting. As well I was introduced to government policies, such as privacy and highly educated on security. I very, very much enjoyed the clientele and was always ready to go the extra mile. Because I was management it was my responsibility to generate a positive and helpful environment and ensured such practice was held by my staff to that standard.
Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) – 1702 Eglinton Ave West Toronto ON – 10 June 2018
Money Mart is my 2nd job in Canada and I may have given them a low rating because I had a different expectation with the company. I have learned and memorized the monetary of Canada, I can now determine fake money just by the looks and feel of it, I learned how to be a cashier, how to float cash from safe to till and till to safe. The hardest part in this job when I accepted it, I was not informed that I need to make sales and if quota is not reached they can terminate you. I guess the job was not for me.

Customer Service representative (Current Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 10 June 2018
Money Mart is a good company to work for and I have enjoyed 5 years employment with them. Unfortunately with company reconstruction hrs have been down sized and I am no longer able to afford to strictly work for them so I am seeking further employment to replace or supplement my income.
A fun place to work with a lot of training to help the employees learn about the tasks they are going to be involved in.
Intermediate Tax Preparer (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 13 May 2018
Intense tax training is provided for nearly three weeks to get the candidate upto speed on the tax regulations. There is also a test to pass to get ensure the candidate understands everything that is taught. The tax preparer job is fine with the chance to learn something new with each tax return. Moreover, it makes the job interesting as it is not very repetitive. However, the job is only available till April 30th hence there is no job security.
Customer Service Operator (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 4 May 2018
My manager was out of this world amazing: always on top of things, genuinely caring we made it home if we had a storm and never pushing you to achieve your numbers or goals of the month. I dont know if I could have moved up from my position but at that point in time i was quite happy.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Moncton, NB – 22 April 2018
If your looking for a job to learn about financial stuff hands down job to go to! I learned ALOT! But if your looking to move up in the company forget about it. I worked my butt off trying to get management.Always short staffed really hard to get time off. After three years I left for a job that appreciates me!!
Learning financial information.
No Staff, Not appreciated for the work you do, behind a window all day
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Nepean, ON – 27 March 2018
The job, in and of itself, is okay, but the management actively encourages customer service representative to mislead customers. I have seen a branch manager forge a customer's signature on a Fast-Cash Advance contract.
The office politics is out of hand. employees split into factions, and managers pick a side instead of encouraging solidarity and civility.. False accusations of harassment, performance evaluations are motivated by managers' personal feelings, and employees often don't respect customer privacy.
Reading other reviews here, it's clear that the situation has only worsened over the years.
Stay away from Money Mart and its toxic work culture.
Customer Service Representative (CSR) (Former Employee) – Hamilton, BM – 25 March 2018
Rather beg for money and live in the shelter than work for them , save your time and life though . workers are weird , customers are weird , cross selling everything and everyone . I can write a book why shouldn't anyone work for them however they should not exist in the country on the first place matter of fact .
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 23 March 2018
I loved working at the head office when I started. I met some amazingly great people, and learned a lot. However, the programs they use frequently have outages, customers are usually already unhappy when they call in, and there isn't a whole lot of product knowledge given to the people manning the phones in the call centre.
As your job tasks and expected responsibilities multiply, your pay remains the same. You burn out very quickly. You get to listen to endless gossip and see your higher ups wasting a whole lot of time talking/doing homework/playing on their phones (yet there is a policy against cell phones and people will and have gotten fired for violating said policy - just not the higher ups)... lots of hypocrisy. Longer term employees being told they are valued, yet being denied promotion opportunities time and again.
There is such high turnover there, they are constantly hiring. It's a revolving door. Everyone at level 1 is replaceable, they don't seem to care much about being direct and honest, and helping you along. Just come along and blindside you with negative feedback once a month, then push you out the door. Despite almost 2 hour wait times for customers to get through to a human being, and no one to replace those being terminated.
Then those left behind are increasingly more stressed out as call times increase, staff decreases, and those who are not terminated, want to quit. Many go and apply at various temp agencies and other, higher paying, call centres.
There is no consistency. You need days off just to decompress and get ready to facemore... another week there. People are constantly "sick" because no one wants to be there.less
