    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Troy, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rent-A-Center (Troy, MI) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called for an interview about a month later. The interview was quick and painless.The interview was not at the store I planned to work at but it wasn't that far of a drive. I was told salary, hours, and what to expect next. When I got home and checked my email I had received the consent for the background check, which I completed, and the places I was able to go for the drug test.

She also said that if she returned the items her children would have to sleep on the floor. How would you handle this situation.   1 Answer

    Delivery Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Rent-A-Center (Indianapolis, IN) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Typical interview process.. Just warned me that some of the customers might be racist.. I'd suggest bringing in a resume to make the process smoother.. Be prepared to take drug test and have a driver and personal background check.. Don't think they are too picky though because they do hire felons.

    Delivery Driver Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Knoxville, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Rent-A-Center (Knoxville, TN) in August 2015.

    Interview

    It was supper easy. I had the job within 90 seconds. Just wear a suit and say that you value working really hard and you'll get the job. It is possible to move to full-time if you do well enough in your job, but the interview doesn't seem to be super important as to whether or not you get the job. They are desperate for employees. I started at $9.50, but I probably should have negotiated for a higher pay.
