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

    Pros

    Pay, always something to do, customers usually friendly, 20 word minimum...hard to come up with that many pros for this job

    Cons

    Other employees being unprofessional talking about which female customer they were going to "meet up with" later, extremely outdated computer system, no verification of information for customers to leave with thousands of dollars in products

    Advice to Management

    Check employees, especially management's knowledge of job before putting them in that position

    Pros

    I been wondering that and came up with none. Oh your off on Sunday.

    Cons

    Unfair pay, slim advancement opportunity. They use Sales or Collectors as management then fires them afterwards. This company has no structure or foundation.

    Advice to Management

    Re think about the people who have been here and promote from within. Stop wasting thousands on outsiders
    The owner needs to revisit his current set up of DMs and Regionals in the Ga market, they are poor!

    Pros

    Rewards all performers. Good bonus plan. Benefits are good.
    Good work hours. Very supportive management. Growing fast so lots of opportunity.

    Cons

    Not a good place for slow moving people. If you're self motivated and a hard worker you'll do great and be recognized and rewarded. If not, you wont last long.
    Training is good for people with experience but not great for a beginner.

    Pros

    I have been with the company over 20 years. Here is what I know. You are guaranteed opportunities if you stick with the plan, work hard and achieve your numbers. Rent A Wheel has a promoted over 71% of their multi-unit managers and store managers from within. I am one of those promotions. I started out as a tire technician and now I am in charge of the entire Western part of the company (CA, CO, AZ, and NV). The company has a uncapped bonus plan and pays the bonus monthly each month on time. You must run the business like you own it and you will be presented with opportunities to further your career. We continue to grow our store counts and with growth more doors continue to open for our top performing team members. We have many people that have been with the company for well over a decade. Our culture is reflective of our Mission, Vision and Values. The owners in our company believe in empowering you to do your job and make decisions. We believe in holding people accountable and teaching them how to be successful. We also believe in giving people the opportunities to be successful.

    Cons

    This is not the place for lazy entitled people. You must work and hit standards. The company only promotes top performing talent to the next level. Either that is a tech to sales, sales to collections, collections to assistant manager etc. You must perform! You must take ownership and run the business like you own it.
