Account Manager Interview

Account Manager
Everett, WA

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Rent-A-Center in December 2013.

Interview Details – Interview was quick and on-boarding procedures was clearly explained. Questions asked dealt with personal and business inquiries to clearly assess the needs of the company as overtime is mandatory. An unpaid evaluation period is requested, as it shows the type of work that is performed and hopefully understood, but is not clear to those who they expect to understand, as a waiting customer could obviously see.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work for Rent-A-Center?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The offered wage was not given, but still accepted the position.
