I have been working at Rent-A-Center full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Meet new people on daily basis. Able to send customers home happy. Closed on Sundays. Keeps a person very busy during their scheduled hours. Somewhat flexible for needs. Get one day off during the week, generally either Tuesday or Thursday. Some local travel for deliveries on island.

Cons

Long hours and mandatory work on Friday, Saturday and Sundayy. Each has their own responsiblity. Each person is expected to work all aspects of the company, however sometimes that is not always the case. Some people are hired assistant manager, where they aren't knowledgable on all aspects of company.

Advice to Management

Very hard to do for a store mananger. It's easier to advance to an Assistant Manager then to the store manager. Some people are hired as an assistant and they don't don't have to climb the ladder.

    I worked at Rent-A-Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, Good Benefits, stock options for District Managers and above, lots of opportunity for advancement if your willing too move.

    Cons

    Long hours, 5 1/2 day work week for District Managers and above.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the 5 1/2 day work week, require DM's and above to work more during the week, 7am to 6pm and they would happily do that then work even an hour on Saturdays. Work/Life balance.

    I have been working at Rent-A-Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    *Decent pay check every week
    * Good Benefits

    Cons

    * For what you do the pay isn't good. You will work anywhere from 50-60 hours a week making 9-11 dollars an hour. While all the big bosses get triple digit raises

    * If, your numbers aren't good credit wise expect for your job to be threatened constanly. You will always catch hell when the store isn't doing good. But when you are doing good also expect your DM to be mad about something.

    * Your job is never. Always have a plan B

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay of the store employees. You guys get to see your family. We don't, we work hard so you can. More money and less hour's.
