No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Rent-A-Center full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Decent pay, decent benefits, good employee purchase program

Cons

The work schedule is HORRIBLE! Consistently working 55-60 hours a week. No time whatsoever for a family/personal life. Treated more as a number than a person. Always told how easy you are to replace if you don't hit your numbers.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees with respect and figure out a way to give us more time with our families'

    I worked at Rent-A-Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay and interaction with good customers some freedom

    Cons

    Micro managed job threatened every week, employees always complaining about what someone else is or isn't doing, dms think manager is end all be all

    Advice to Management

    Support your manager, throw some accountability to assistants and cars not always harping on the manager to do it while they are trying to do the 50 other things they have to do, put managers who care thru the dmdp program so they can control their own destiny and not rely on selfish dms to toy with them on whether or not they may 1 day achieve personal success.
