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

    Pros

    The pay is $10.25 starting with minimum 48 hour schedules. The company Promotes quickly, and the Benefits are very nice.

    Cons

    All jobs at rent a center are very high stress and ask more of you than most people can handle. The program they give you will not allow for success. You WILL be challenged to bend and break your own moral and ethical standards, as well as certain legal measures. All positions are overburdened frequently and the structure of the business does not allow for extra people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the Customer Account representatives from the store. Get a District wide delivery center which will be maintained by the CARs and have only your salesmen, credit manager, and Store Manager in store. These 3 people almost never see the field anyhow, so why not make the CARs only preform deliveries and runs while the staff in-store deals with payments, call through, and customers. The business model is succeeding with growth, but in the long run Aaron's business model will provide them with the tools and income to succeed due to having part time employees as well as dedicated positions vs. everyone gets sales.
