    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Rent-A-Center (Portland, OR) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I showed up a few minutes early and was asked to wait in the showroom. After waiting for 20 minutes (15min) after my scheduled time a young manager invited me into a small unorganized office. He then spent a few minutes looking for my resume while talking about the other horrible interviews he had already done.
    There was a 5 minute question answer period where he asked questions then continued to talk before letting me answer. He would cut me off and say "I got it" then ask another question. Repeat.

    At the end he said I passed the screening process and I'd have to come back to talk with the hiring manager.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Rent-A-Center (Addison, TX) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Very easy process, the manager will sit you with a current employee to get the feel of what we'd be doing. Then after that is a mock call where you speak with someone using a script, so they can see how you handle call flow. Then of course the standard interview where they ask about your goals, schedule needs, and experience.
