    I have been working at Rent-A-Center full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    (Post for working at the Headquarters) Great people and management. Ability to attend conferences and learn Supportive team and very collaborative environment Relaxed on taking time to attend kid functions and other things that come up (as long as its not abused). Decent-good work-life balance

    Cons

    Nothing specific. Working in an office environment always has some cons that are specific to an individual, but not enough to be reviewed.

      I worked at Rent-A-Center full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Set schedule. It was a paycheck.

      Cons

      Almost everything else. Credit/sales goals that have to met weekly. Had a GM that customers could manipulate to not pay, but my job performance was based of their payment history.

        I worked at Rent-A-Center full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Paid every week, off on Sundays.

        Cons

        Poor management, horrible at training, will leave you in the store alone and you barely know what to do because it the beginning of your second week with the company and I never received my first check.

        Get it together.
