Manager Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Las Cruces, NM – December 12, 2017
I was hired as a Assistant Manager. We would start the day by prepping equipment and getting our tire displays ready. We would then call potential leads that came by the previous day and would help them get the tires and rims they needed for their vehicles. We would also order special order tires and rim for the customers.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – November 9, 2017
Good place to work if you like Rent To Own and wheels and tires or cars in general. The hours and the pay started to conflict as I realized for the amount of hours that I worked and my salary added up to me being one of the lowest paid employees at my own store and just got burnt out.
it sort of gave me a taste of outside sales just because we are selling tires and wheels and there are very many competitors in that business. Overall i loved it it was challenging competitive and fun.

Rent A Wheel is a great company to work for with decent pay and good benefits. Unfortunately the locations I worked had terrible management at the time which is the only reason why I left the company. Since then the regional management has cleaned house of bad mangers taking advantage of the company and it's employees.

Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Pico Rivera , Ca – February 19, 2017
A great job to have to get hands on experience. Though the down side being vendors with low or no stock along with drilling improperly creating a inconvenience for the customer while taking no responsibility. Great work hours 10:30 am - 7:00pm every Sunday off with a additional day during the week.

Store Manager that GTFO (Former Employee) – Oklahoma – July 22, 2016
I'm not sure where all the people with the good reviews worked but it wasn't the Rent A Wheel I know. I was recruited by this company. I had numerous years experience in sales and management and bigger stores than this.
Employees- high turnover and low pay. I felt sorry for most of them. I wanted to fire all of them so they could get better paying jobs. Good people but most of them lacked self esteem and didn't believe they deserved better. Poorly trained by previous management mainly because most of them dont stay long anyway. You need to be desperate to work for this company.
Store managers work a ridiculous amount of hours. I was put in a store with no assistant, a sales person that couldn't do his job after being there 90 days. I worked before the store opened til after it closed 6 days a week. You will be doing a lot of physical work. Employees often call in or no show and they know they won't likely be fired because no one in their right mind wants to work there. You will be selling, collecting, repoing , and dismounting and installation of wheels and tires. You will deal with the bottom rung of humanity with horrible communications whose goto method is yelling and threats. You will deal with more heat cases than an IRS operator. The bonus structure is a huge part of the pay plan and you won't find out until you're already working that to qualify you have to close out the month with only 5% credit delinquency. Think about that, the people with the woest pay history on the face of the earth and you needcto have 95% of them current at any given time. Out ofmore... 130 they have about 10-20 stores that accomplish this occasionally and it is hit or miss. My advice is simple, don't work for this company unless you are literally at tge brink of homelessness or starvation. If you are in tha position take the job and keep living. This is a business that preys on the ignorant, the poor, and the disabled for its customer base. You have to be scum with no compassion to want to work for this company. If you have no soul and are in league with Lucifer you have found your calling.less

I learned to deal with different type of personalities, is always better to work as a team, the hardest part of the job is taking the right decisions in critical times and the most enjoyable part was that i got to meet a lot of people that helped me be a professional.
