VEGAS INC SpECIAl publICAtIoN BEST PLACES TO WORK 3RD PLACE CASH AMERICA OF NEVADA T he mantra at Cash America’s Nevada operations is: It’s cool to care. Caring for an employee, a customer or others in general is rewarded at the company, which has 23 locations in Southern Nevada and is home to some 270 employees. If an employee or supervisor witnesses one of those random acts of kindness or moments of going above and beyond, a worker is awarded “Rock Star Reward Points,” says Beverly Chester, human resources director for the Nevada operations. The points are tied to gift cards, online giveaways and other rewards. But Cash America, which operates as Super Pawn in Nevada, is no slouch on the benefits front either. The specialty finance and retailer offers medical benefits, a 50 percent 401(k) match, medical flex spending accounts, pre- tax dependent daycare accounts, among other offerings. But perhaps even more impressive is that employees are eligible for the benefits after only 30 days on the job. “It’s an array of benefits you’re not going to see, especially in our category of business,” Chester adds. Cash America has also partnered with worthy local causes such as DJs for PJs, Rebel Reading Challenge, Candlelighters and other charity efforts in its 35-year valley history. The culture of the stores also drives employees to stay with the company. Employee ages are from 18 to 70, everyone from a complete industry newbie to a grizzled veteran. “I think employees feel it’s really a fun place to work. Everyday it’s something different and you’re always learning something new. There’s a real sense of camaraderie,” she adds. — Brian Sodoma RANKINGS: MEDIUM (101 TO 300 EMPLOYEES) Rank Company Name 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Windermere Real Estate Lexus of Las Vegas and Lexus of Henderson Cash America SuperPawn Faith Lutheran Jr/Sr High School Helix Electric University of Phoenix Desert Radiologists University of Southern Nevada Silver Ridge Healthcare Center 10 Levi’s Score 94.89 91.23 88.39 86.90 85.45 83.76 83.27 79.93 79.39 78.25 Emp.
