W. Allan Jones Check Into Cash AVOID AT ALL COSTS Cleveland, Tennessee
All I can say about this company is WOW. Watch out. If you are thinking of obtaining a loan from them, consider this article from the Huffington Post's Gary Rivkin about Check Into Cash owner W. Allan Jones:
Portrait of a Subprime Lender
So when you use your hard-earned money to pay off that payday loan with Check Into Cash, it is all going into a huge pot with other low-income Americans' hard-earned money to pay for:
A huge mansion
A climate-controlled garage filled with exotic cars, many of which Mr. Jones can barely squeeze into
Huge donation to an aquatic center
And as you read the article, notice what a bigot this man is. W. Allan Jones, who makes most of his fortune from poor minorities, also apparently feels that blacks "make a good basketball team."
If you are considering working for this company, WALK AWAY NOW. You will be exposed to the following disgusting elements:
"Good 'ole boys' network" -- if you aren't overweight, didn't grow up in Cleveland, are not a poorly-disguised hillbilly, or aren't cousins or friends with Steve Scoggins, Lynn DeVault, or Allan Jones you are not part of this network and you never will be.
Blatant sexual harassment -- the most offensive behavior coming from W. Allan Jones himself, who makes erratic appearances to the office (always looking like he slept in his clothes) to make irrational demands. While he is in the office, he spends most of his time openly leering at female employees' breasts. One lady I knew kept a sweater in her desk drawer just so she could put it on any time Jones showed up. He is not polite about it, either. His stares last a good 30 seconds. Even when you catch him looking, he will not look away. Oh, and if you want to complain to human resources, GOOD LUCK WITH THAT. You will be fired before you get back to your desk.
Bullying -- By the time W. Allan Jones would leave Check Into Cash, at least one employee was usually in tears and afraid of losing their job -- which they should have been, because W. Allan Jones will fire someone in five seconds if they so much as make a clerical mistake on the personal crap he will people do. Everyone is scared shitless of him because he is so irrational. Working for W. Allan Jones is much like working for King Henry VIII must have been -- minus the guillotine, but you get what I'm saying.
Nepotism -- If you are part of the Good 'Ole Boys' network, you may hire your entire family and your friends to work for W. Allan Jones at Check Into Cash. If an employee accidentally offends one of these family members (they're everywhere -- there's no way to keep track of them) they will find themselves fired.
Hostile Work Environment -- Working at Check Into Cash under W. Allan Jones is like working in a rat's nest. There is all kinds of in-fighting, back-stabbing, "special deals" for favorite employees, gossiping, and plotting. The departments at Check Into Cash are all pitted against each other and won't work together for the good of Check Into Cash. They are so busy plotting against each other nothing ever gets done.
You do not want to work here, have anyone in your family work here, or patronize Check Into Cash or any other business owned by W. Allan Jones.
