    Interview Details

    They will tell you a lot of things that just aren't true. They like to think they pay you a lot of money. The time and stress involved is a lot more difficult than they let on. They will interview almost anyone but you have to take a test in order to get in. Most applicants for this company won't be able to reach their higher standards on this test. Same one given at the NFL combine can remember name. Very analytical and it is timed.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.
