I worked at Rent-A-Center full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Great pay, Good Benefits, stock options for District Managers and above, lots of opportunity for advancement if your willing too move.

Cons

Long hours, 5 1/2 day work week for District Managers and above.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the 5 1/2 day work week, require DM's and above to work more during the week, 7am to 6pm and they would happily do that then work even an hour on Saturdays. Work/Life balance.

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

    Pros

    Semi annual raises, guaranteed over time every week, paid holidays off, paid vacation, employee prices on merchandise, advancement opportunities. I love what I do. I love being able to provide families with products that they may not have the credit to finance or have the money to purchase outright. Some of my customers have become almost like family to me. The income is great, getting paid every week makes it easy on you. The benefits such as the health plan, retirement are great.

    Cons

    I have a small son and split days off and working 50+ hours per week gets hard at times. I wish I could spend more time with him since he is sleeping when I go to work and getting ready for bed when I get home. Its hard to make plans to do anything with split days off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe mix it up and let coworkers rotate 2 day weekends.

    I worked at Rent-A-Center full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Employee Purchase program, nothing else

    Cons

    No life, intimidation by higher ups, unrealistic expectations, did I mention no life? Kiss your family and your health good bye, get ready to deal with the arm pit of society.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn what professionalism really is, treat people the way you want to be treated.
