Pros: Good excercise, sales and collection experience, good pay
Cons: Expensive benefits, long days, occasional issue on collection visits
A typical day was completing daily P&L, bank deposit, and delivery schedule while supervising associates making collection calls and preparing for store opening. Throughout the day, taking payments, promoting sales and supervising staff for necessary daily tasks. Spoke to District Manager Hourly for updates. 50+ sales/telemarketing calls daily. I learned how the Rent to Own industry worked and how to correctly make collections on past due accounts. The management was good to work for. Most of the time helping with anything necessary to reach sales and collection standards. The hardest part of the job was telemarketing the same people repeatedly. The most enjoyable part of the job was the atmosphere. Even though fast paced, working with the customers and other coworkers made it enjoyable.
