"During interviews they display the company as a great place to work, however, they don't tell you every day could possibly be your last day. The upper management does not care anything about you. They don't tell you upon hiring that they do not pay into retirement, there is no workmen's comp in the event of an on the job accident. You deal with excessive amounts of money and if you are robbed, your family will get nothing due to no insurance, and they will find a way to blame everything on you as the employee."

"I've worked for Advance America for a few months now. I've had great supervisors and coworkers and the customers are awesome for the most part. Biggest drawbacks are the hours and the pay. Being that Advance America is open 6 days a week, you don't get much time to spend with your family, or anyone for that matter, outside of work."
