    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in South Phoenix, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Rent-A-Center (South Phoenix, AZ) in September 2012.

    Interview

    I had a corporate job recruiter find me on carebuilder, This person was great. But when I went to the interview it was a joke!!! I was told that I would have to start at the bottom of the managers totem pole at $11.00 an hour. I Have 30 years of management experience and was insulted with the pay and the questions there district manager asked me. The merchandise they sell looks like you can buy it from Goodwill or Kmart very cheap stuff. They carter to the low income, most of your job would be trying to collect payments or recover the merchandise. RAC should save money by telling there customers to throw the merchandise in the dumpster if the can't make their payments! I wasted time and gas to go to this circus and talk to these CLOWNS! This was the first time I've been to a RAC. I guess they stay in business because what did Barnum say, ( There's a sucker born every minute!)
