A Fun Job But Not A Career
Credit Manager (Former Employee), Lee's Summit, MOAugust 19, 2014
Pros: fun work environment, meeting different people everyday, getting out of the office on deliveries
Cons: low pay and not a career position
Rent-A-Center is a fun place to work if you don't mind drastically overcharging people for furniture, appliances and electronics they probably want but don't necessarily need. And let's face it, if you walk into a Rent-A-Center, you probably already know what you're in for as far as paying too much for something to have the option of buying it over – more... time with poor credit. If you want a decent workout mixed with some good office and phone experience, this is a fun job but I wouldn't make it a career. – less

Great pay and benefits. Ruff environment
Sales Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Coeur d'Alene, IDAugust 16, 2014
Pros: great pay and benefits
Cons: long hours, no work life balance, super stressful and negative environment
Was a great place to work to get a guaranteed paycheck. Ruff workplace environment. split days off with 47 hour weeks, usually working from 8am-7pm 5 days a week. If you have a family prepare yourself to not see them very much because work always comes first. Even if you are sick they make you feel bad for trying to use your earned sick days.

Pay is good, work is tough, but I hate them because they "laid me off" due to the district being over by 1. 2 weeks later, they hired 2 new people at a lower rate than me.

Not an ideal place to work if you have a family.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Memphis, TNAugust 13, 2014
Pros: employment, employee purchase program.
Cons: everything else
By far, the worst job that I've ever had. From unrealistic expectations, to being belittled and bullied by upper management. If you value your family, this is the wrong company to work for.

Room For Advancement
Lead Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Shelbyville, KYAugust 12, 2014
Pros: decent benefits, employee benefits
Cons: no consecutive days off, no sick time, vacation time doesn't come until after 1 year of employment.
Plenty of room for advancement, but you will have no work/home life balance right from the start. If you have a family that you like spending time with then this is not the job for you. If you are single then this would be perfect. Advancement can happen fast as long as you have a willingness to learn. Also if you value having two consecutive days off – more... then stay away. It will never happen unless you're on vacation. – less

Company provides opportunity for advancement, typical day of work consist of daily operations of the store. I learned management and how to work with all personalities.

Pros: being able to communicate with people

Store Manager (Former Employee), Rochester, NHAugust 7, 2014
I would recommend working at MetroCast if you're currently a student looking for a stable paycheck. This is not the place to work if you'd like an actual career.
