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

Pros

Rapid advancement, decent pay, lots of expericenes. Every day is an adventure as no two days are ever a like.

Cons

Very long work hours 10+ a day as a regular employee. Now move to store manager and 60-65 hours a week are the norm. Keeps adding more and more of a workload to an already overloaded schedule. Running a credit department, sales department, telemarketing department and keeping track of all accounts daily is a bit much with the sale every other week that they do. Upper management wanting references to be entered into a telemarketing site and calling several times and leaving messages if they dont answer

Advice to Management

Remember what it was like to be in a store and how stressful it is. Try to remember that the hours we work are already killing our families. Upper management needs to go to grunt hours and realize just how hard it is to have a family when you see them 2 hours a night before bed and 0 hours if you have young children.

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

    Pros

    Weekly pay, decent health dental coverage, employee purchases, off Sundays

    Cons

    Worst work schedule ever... I was told latest we work is 8pm and 7pm on Saturdays.... I work daily till 9-945 pm, Pray you or your family doesnt have any emergencies because you wont be able to tend to them or dont plan to attend any family/school events without being threatened of losing your job.The company mission is sooo NOT true! How does rent a center define quality way of life for co-workers. Company recently bragged about its 3billion dollars it made last year.... what about the people who did alot to bring in that revenue?. Why not throw them a bone? Something?? No incentives whatsoever working at rentacenter.

    Advice to Management

    Rotate saturdays, follow an accurate work schedule, monthly or quarterly incentives for the dedicated employees who do so much to contribute to rent a centers success.
