    I worked at Rent-A-Center full-time

    Pros

    Very energetic environment but a great company to work for, I am mad I left but they take very good care of their employees.

    Cons

    Really none, except people that don't care about who they work for or who's toes they step on. Also the prices are very high so you start to feel like you are ripping people off.

    Advice to Management

    I would do away with the pds positions and go back to having full time customer account reps. Other than that nothing new to suggest.

    I worked at Rent-A-Center as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - They conducted weekly meetings with us where we got to meet and learn from VP's from every department
    - The final meeting they asked us how they could better the company
    - One day they placed us in a store so that we could see the operations side of the company

    Cons

    - There were not any cons for working for this company as an intern

    Advice to Management

    We were the first group of interns that y'all had and y'all seemed very excited to expand the program. I personally enjoyed the experience and how much time and effort y'all invested in us and hope that the company actually did expand the program.

    I worked at Rent-A-Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay, vacation, advancement in the company. Great place to work if you want to do what it takes to excel. If you want to just get a paycheck each week then it's probably not for you. If you take pride in what you do and want to get massive earning potential I suggest joining this company.

    Cons

    Constantly changing policies that don't need changed, customers not paying or hiding from you.

    Advice to Management

    Get off your high horse come work the store see what it's like instead of setting behind a computer passing the buck on the email system.

    Pros

    Good benefits and atmosphere. Very progressive with their management style and very reactive as the situation requires it. Their attempts at trying different models is very interesting.

    Cons

    None. I enjoyed my time with this company. Although they have been making many changes I believe that the current landscape required the changes that they are making.

    Advice to Management

    Keep everyone in the loop as much as possible
