Current Employee - Store Manager
Current Employee - Store Manager

Pros

RTO is an exciting industry which RAC helped define. Entry-level employee pay is above average. There are many opportunities for advancement within the store-level.

Cons

Manager pay is below standard. The bonus structure is developed to lessen the payout. Absolutely NO work/life balance - you are lucky if you get a couple of hours a day with your family. Work-loads and expectations are over-the-top.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

• Coach the DVPs, RDs and DMs to understand that different market segments are exactly that - different.
• Develop a more aggressive pricing strategy that focuses on the consumer demographics.
• Lessen the quantity of "sales events" as the current every other week event demeans the value of a "sale".
• Re-integrate RAC Acceptance into the local store - sales/BOR, income/expenses/profit, etc.
• Consider a new co-worker timekeeping model that allows for fewer hours for all employees as to improve work/life balance.

    Pros

    Great benefits, the pay is great for a entry level position, the employee purchase program is amazing

    Cons

    You give up a life outside of work, unrealistic expectations, you are no longer a person, but a number, work hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop giving trips to the Bahamas to upper management. Give those trips to the people selling your products. We are more than numbers
