    I have been working at Rent-A-Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a job! Work some where else

    Cons

    Upper Management, Hours, Pay, Demands, If you see a store manager that has been there for more than a year it is because they can not find any thing else, Almost 70% of the workers hate the job and working here only for the time until they find another. Call any store and they will tell you how bad it sucks, DO NOT WORK HERE , WHY DO YOU THINK THEY HAVE SUCH HIGH TURN -OVER . If you are reading this and take the job, trust me in 3 months you will hate the company and the job.

    Advice to Management

    Hire educated Management. Ged and Highschool graduate's do not need to be manager's or DM, sadly some make it to RD level then fail. There is a reason why this company's core RTO is failing .

    I worked at Rent-A-Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working here was great, people on this website like to whine about 48-55 hours a week but they pay you time and a half for anything over 40 hours, do you people not like money? With the way the economy is I took the job and worked my butt off and smiled. They could definitely afford to pay more but that will be discussed in the Cons section. This job is like any other, if you have good leadership your time at RaC will be great, if you have bad leadership your time will suck. The one thing I did notice is that ALL managers who give a crap did take everything any employee suggested and really tried to work it out with the higher ups, they do listen and they do try to help all employees. I left this job, but only because a better paying one was available.

    Cons

    There aren't too many Cons to this job (if you are a hard worker and not a whiny crybaby). The one thing that sucks is trying to collect money from people who are broke, if they have no money for rent, their 55" plasma tv bill is the least of their worries. Also chasing after skips/stolen accounts is a hassle but you get paid for it so it's whatever. Honestly for the work you do and for how profitable this company is, they could easily bump your pay about 3-4$ an hour and still make billions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so cheap, pay your employees a batter wage, you can afford it you greedy scumbags.
