Executive Manager (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – July 19, 2017
Long stressful hours, have to hit certain numbers and if you do not you can expect to work late or get punished. Not that much room for growth because you have a 5 person team and to move up can take years. Not a great place to work.
Meeting new people, customer service, Sunday's off
Very stressful, career growth takes a long time, no job security
Customer Account Manager (Current Employee) – DeKalb, IL – July 18, 2017
The most enjoyable part of the day was helping customers rethink there financial plan. I would often sit with customers and help them with an affordable budget. The hardest part was not meeting our store goals, we would often stay in and make phone calls until 9pm on a Friday night to get people to pay there bills, i felt like i was harassing people, i was the most hated by far because the job made me cut throat, i would get people to return there merchandise because i simply told them they couldn't afford it from the start. Management would change each quarter, i seen someone get promoted to district manager and less than a year later get demoted back down to store manager.
paid weekly, Job advancements.
Short lunch break. If you smoked endless breaks were given, go through several differnt managers each year.
District manager is not good , never happy with our performance, there is a large turn around because of him and the policy that always change, other then that if dont have a family its great to work here.
Assistant Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Slidell, LA – July 17, 2017
My experience within rent a center is jaded, when I accepted the job in Slidell the management has been the business for the better part of 25 years and knew how to run the business and manage employees but when I transferred to the store in Chester the management was inept in every way the store manager was stealing from the company as well as not being able to keep the products in clean and maintained order. This stores mentality was more about smoke breaks than they were about maintaining any aspect of the business
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Painesville, OH – July 16, 2017
The company has been on a steady decline for the past two years now. You can expect to work all day every day harassing customers to pay and getting yelled at by management because they didn't want make a payment or return the merchandise.
Okay pay with decent benefits but, not worth the lost of time spent with your family.
Good pay and benefits
Long hours, terrible management, terrible point of sale system
