    I have been working at easyhome

    Pros

    Great family environment in store, friendly customers. Had a blast doing service on the newest technology and learning about lease agreements

    Cons

    Pay wasn't enough to be a CRS or DS, manager made almost double what the other employees did, and working ridiculous hours away from family. Never approved time off and always thought of themselves before the employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more. 12 dollars an hour to do repossessions is horrible. They need to stop looking at the bottom line and realize people aren't going to stay for a horrible pay. They need to pay the employee the proper amount for the job they do.

    Cons

    Discrimination against moving up on company
    Asking for a transfer and never getting a definite response

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you say everybody has equal opportunity to advance then you should stick to it!!!!

    Managers should have to do somekind of work instead of delegating his/her jobs to other employees

    When we have an issue with management and advise a regional manager about we shouldn't be scrutinized by it from the manager

    Pros

    Helping customers in tight jams
    most co-workers

    Cons

    Upper Managment is not bright at all, they are more concerned with their suits than you.
    They are very unproffesional and make fun of you to other managers
    They change things on a daily bases and don't tell(no joke what you can do today you will be threatened to be fired the next day for doing the samething)
    no communication between upper managment and store managers which makes the job very difficult when you never know what your doing. They keep sending emails and calling to say how many loans do you have going out today whatever your answer is ...the reply is thats not good enough are you sure that your cut out for this.
    i have never ever worked for a company like this in my life they are so childish...and not very bright..they sent a email out to get on a conference call so i call in to hear three district managers making fun of store managers I couldn't believe my ears so i just sat and listened and of course taped the whole conversation they gave the wrong conference code which is how i heard this whole thing and as i said they were making fun of how people looked and they were cursing and talking about medical issues managers had and very personal medical information at that..they were talking about who they were going to fire it was sick i knew in that moment i had to get away from these people. they don't give many holidays at all. the interest rate is through the roof. if you want 5k the total cost with ins is 12500....run run run and its who you know and suck up to thats how you advance.
    a lot of upper operations quit ..a lot of people are jumping ship..they are running themselves into the ground

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up and start hiring people that are actually qualified for their positions, you have lost some of the best people due to not listening to the store managers we were the ones on the front lines but you didn't want to listen you just protect the upper managment and where is that getting you? anyone above store managers are a expense to the company we are not we are the ones actually doing the work!! you were given plenty of info through the my safe work place (what a joke) and HR and your silly monkey surveys and still you kept letting really honest strong managers walk. Your company is only as good as the treatment of your staff so think about this ...go to work for someone who is hounding the crap out of you every hour telling you your not good enough...do you really think i am going to give you the best no way i am only going to do what i need to do to get by becuase if you don't care about me then i don't give a fig about you or your company. now if you were good clean honest company then i would be working my butt off for you and if i had a slow day then i would be dissapointed in myself and would trying harder the next day as this was the way it started out but then the company shifted and just kept hiring bad district managers till it was no longer fun to work for you. so you can have your big degrees it doesn't mean nothing when you have no common sense treat your staff like crap and thats what you get back in return. I am now just waiting to see how long it is going to take to see you go out of business!!!

    I have been working at easyhome full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Newer store lay outs appeal to customers.
    Multiple ways for customer to save money.

    Cons

    No real plan for stores future.
    Weak home office talent and poor support to stores.
    Cloak and dagger style manaement where they plan behind your back to eliminate problems rather than fix.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your ops teams in store and support them with constant well thought out feedback. We live in an age of digital connections were no one is truely out of reach so why do some emails not get answered? Well that is simple it is not important to you and YOU are more important than us so we can deal with it!
