Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Hilo, HI
Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Hilo, HI

I have been working at Rent-A-Center full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Meet new people on daily basis. Able to send customers home happy. Closed on Sundays. Keeps a person very busy during their scheduled hours. Somewhat flexible for needs. Get one day off during the week, generally either Tuesday or Thursday. Some local travel for deliveries on island.

Cons

Long hours and mandatory work on Friday, Saturday and Sundayy. Each has their own responsiblity. Each person is expected to work all aspects of the company, however sometimes that is not always the case. Some people are hired assistant manager, where they aren't knowledgable on all aspects of company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Very hard to do for a store mananger. It's easier to advance to an Assistant Manager then to the store manager. Some people are hired as an assistant and they don't don't have to climb the ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the 5 1/2 day work week, require DM's and above to work more during the week, 7am to 6pm and they would happily do that then work even an hour on Saturdays. Work/Life balance.

    Pros

    Employee Purchase program, nothing else

    No life, intimidation by higher ups, unrealistic expectations, did I mention no life? Kiss your family and your health good bye, get ready to deal with the arm pit of society.
