I worked at Rent-A-Center full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Employee purchase program, freedom to be out of the store on a daily basis (lots of driving), 1 hour lunches (most times), you meet lots of people and opportunities to make connections outside of work.

Cons

The days are looooong (at least 10 hours each day), your days off are split up, many bugs and nasty situations, the company does not care about your personal life, you are not allowed to work two jobs, delivery expectations are sometime unrealistic, did I mention you have no life outside the workplace?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize that there is more to life than RAC, it's understood that you have to act in a certain way in order to have success within a company, but just know that every employee is not compensated as well as you and there is little motivation for us to want to work hard for the company.

    Pros

    Easy to relocate in company

    Cons

    Long hours, If your are a woman of color in management, the all boys club will have no respect for your hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more woman in DM roles, ask yourself why your turn over is so high.
