    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Rent-A-Center in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    Before being hired, you are made to take a timed aptitude test consisting of general math and a series of job scenario type questions. If I remember correctly, I had to interview with a district manager before finally interviewing with the store manager at the store you were expected to work.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Not much negotiation took place, there was a set pay that was more than minimum wage, but you were forced to work 48 and sometime more hours per week. After it was said and done, you make about 14.00 per hour.
