    I have been working at Rent-A-Center full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There seems to be opportunity for growth, you are given a fair chance to prove your worth and it is refreshing.

    Cons

    In my district, or has become apparent that the need for qualified individuals to operate the business is lacking. In lieu of such case, anyone with an above average ability to sell becomes a store manager, leaving the company at a disadvantage for significant growth and well management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To my district manager: please acknowledge that there are better qualified individuals to run and operate a facility and understand top say "no" to individuals who are exceptional sales men but lack the knowledge to run a store.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Rent-A-Center.

    Interview Details

    There was two phone interviews and then a face to face interview.
    The process was really quickly and I was very excited about the position and the pay rate.
    Once hired the training process was null and void.
    You are trained for three days and then thrown to the wolves. You will need to be a self starter!
