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

    Pros

    You make more money than you would on unemployment.
    It makes you continuously appreciative of the better work environment in which you will certainly find yourself after you leave the company.

    Cons

    Horrible office politics
    No work/life balance
    Little regard or respect for employees
    Poor development and advancement opportunities
    Terrible benefits package (and gets worse every year)
    The weight of the knowledge that you are helping a company to exploit the poor (their business model is designed to exploit individuals and families with poor credit, poor resources and income, poor decision-making skills, poor education, and poor impulse control)

    Advice to Management

    Hard to advise senior management, since the problems begin with them. But I will say this: another reviewer mentioned that they were thinking about taking Rent-A-Center off of their resume, as other employers, aware of the problems and culture at Rent-A-Center, don't want to hire former Rent-A-Center employees. That reviewer is absolutely correct; I know because we have that unofficial policy at my current employer, a FAR better company in a FAR more respectable industry. So Rent-A-Center isn't simply a horrible experience while you work there - it damages you in your career that follows. You don't "leave" Rent-A-Center so much as you "survive" it. And that seeds a reputation for which no employer should be proud.
