    I worked at Bestway full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The money and insurance.... and the relationships with customers

    Cons

    You will work 55+ hrs... no work/home balance AT ALL!! Managers are lazy and get paid for doing nothing! When cooperate managers come everything is FAKE. All the policies that are implied are only preformed when they visit. You will work whether you are sick, dying, natural disaster it does not matter! Good luck trying to take a vacation that you EARNED!!! Managers hold returns and payouts so that it looks like there was "gain" on the day. No training but expect perfection in job duties. No accountability. Good luck getting merchandise from customers without being torn up, infested with bed bugs or roaches, and/or just not "sellable" and when merchandise is recovered it was done in an unethical way majority of the time. All employees are terrified of upper management visiting the store.

    Advice to Management

    Your the leader therefor act the part!!! Your actions will reflect on the employees.. they will do what you do.. so do what is right which is NOT sitting in your office collecting a check and shopping online.

    Life in constant danger trying to collect on over priced dirty merchandise that has been paid for 3 times over.

    I have been working at Bestway full-time

    Pros

    Repetition is key when dealing with any rent to own company. However with Bestway, they expect the best...so they'll pay the best. If you strive for success you can not only get paid handsomely but you will move up very quickly (CEO of the company used to be a delivery driver if that tells you anything)

    Cons

    In this company, there is no equilibrium between work life and home life. You will work 55+ hours every week as an assistant store manager, mo matter what the circumstances are.

    I worked at Bestway full-time

    Pros

    Good hours, relaxed work environment, good starting pay, respectful co-workers also very friendly, the customers are all great people. It's not too bad.

    Cons

    The boss was very disrespectful, the hours weren't flexible at all, it wasn't very clean either. It wasn't the best working environment

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to the cleaning staff the bathrooms are gross. Change out the salad bar more often.
