At first challenging but over all not that hard to conquer if you don't mind having no personal life.

I have been working at Rent-A-Center

Pros

To receive lots of hours and great over time. To gather lots of experience documenting leads and learning how to market your company and yourself. Learning how to rely on only your efforts to generate profits and revenues. Learning how to sell used merchandise and alter terming matrix to make a reasonable rental agreements that will satisfy your customer and your company.

Cons

Long hours, demanding District Managers, poor communications skills, and poor software, and poor salary increases.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Come directly in as manager and nothing else and kiss lots of butt to get ahead dont ever have your own ideas unless you know it's what they really want to hear.

    Good company to work for but being in the right store or at the right location helps a lot.

    I worked at Rent-A-Center

    Pros

    Decent pay, off every Sunday, meet a lot of people, never boring, able to work in and outside of the store.

    Cons

    Long hours, rough sales expectations, lazy co-workers will make it hard, sometimes difficult to work on advancement and complete required training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    District Managers and Store Managers need to communicate more and be on the same page. It will increase production of employees.

    Pros

    The teamwork and friendliness with the rest of the crew were great. This job provides the opportunity to meet a lot of interesting people.

    Cons

    Some places you end up delivering to and picking up from can be less than ideal. Customers often are not anxious to pay their bills and can become quite irritated when you call and remind them about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give a pay increase to all account reps. Their job is difficult and and the hours are terrible at times.
