    Pros

    I am working harder than I ever have but it is worth it to me to have an opportunity to build a career. I came from a similar company but the opportunity was not there . I worked hard to go no where. I feel like this company will give me the opportunity and it makes working worth it. if they believe in my I will believe in them. I feel like my store is actually my store. I run it like its mine. I care about it.

    Cons

    The hours for a manager can be long. There are not guarantees.

    Advice to Management

    If my manager was in my store more often I coudl grow faster

    I have been working at Rent A Wheel (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work schedule is good. Not working on Sundays along with getting off at a decent hour is a plus.

    Cons

    I was lied to when I was hired about pay and was told by store manager that raises aren’t given only to watch her go above and beyond to give the sales rep a raise since she bought a new truck. District, Regional and Corporate staff only listens to what the store manager says...everyone else is irrelevant. Training is horrible, I was not trained when I started. People are allowed to break policies and falsify documents with no
    Accountability besides a slap on the wrist.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone is store manager does not mean they are the only ones who can be trusted in the store. Hold people accountable throughout the store not just the people who aren’t friends.

    I worked at Rent A Wheel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is no Pro's... horrible work environment!

    Cons

    Poor communication from the top down. The Human Resources Department is a joke! They are quick to dismiss a employee without fact finding and hire any warm body to work there. They rip customers off by adding accessories to their account without them knowing. That will add another $500.00 to the customers account. Employees get the so-called bonuses taken away because of all the skip accounts. The customers are total thieves and have no intent on paying for the wheels and tires. Customers will verbally and physically attack you and will even pull knives and guns on you! Don't waste your time at Rent-A-Wheel, they under pay for what they expect out of you. You can't live on $12.00 - $13.00 an hour and don't get me started on the broken promises and dangling carrot... all lies!

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the employees because they are the ones who are making you all the money! Listen before you act... it's called communication!

    We understand it is difficult for an employee when they are let go from a company. And while we appreciate feedback, we adamantly disagree on many points. Rent A Wheel's HR department continuously... More

    I worked at Rent A Wheel full-time

    Pros

    The atmosphere and culture was relaxed but always productive.
    Friday get-togethers.
    Management was great.
    Co-workers were awesome.

    Cons

    I guess the 30 minute lunch break was a little short for my tastes but that is a personal preference.

    Open up a center in OKC (I moved from Los Angeles) and hire me.

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

    Pros

    Rent A Wheel is very open to employee opinions and suggestions. It's rare to find a company that takes the time to listen to employee opinions. It's truly an open door policy with upper management. Rent A Wheel is ultimately what you make out of it, you can easily move up, you just have to be willing to put in the work.

    Cons

    I wish Rent A Wheel would provide more paid days off. As a retail company, we work most holidays, except for the majors ones (ie christmas, Thanksgiving, Independence day, New Years)

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be employee buy in. Make sure employees buy into the company's mission and values.
