Weekly pay. Demanding work schedule. Good benefits. Turnover of staff and management is very high. Rules and regulations are not consistent. Its ok to do one thing today and be wrong the next.

Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAMay 20, 2018
The company advertises a Servants Heart but it is all a lie. Due to the change of culture Management from the RD, DM and especially the Store Manager have become very abusive Mentally. Your job/career is constantly threatened daily due to the hostile work environment.
Pros
They pay you every week.
Cons
They pay you every week to keep you, Not a family friendly schedule, and your job threatened if you call out sick.

Just ok
Lead Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PADecember 22, 2017
Not the experience I was hoping for. I went in with high hopes of managing my own store. I was transferred several times to "fix" stores but never given one to run. Disappointing to say the least.

Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PANovember 4, 2017
Review accounts remind customers of timely payments. Learned that a good planned day can go a lot more relaxed than an unplanned day. Business casual environment had a great team well communicated and polite team workers. Hardest part of the job ill say was stain removing of prior rented items such as sofas. I enjoyed more the cleaning and set up of store cause am a clean enthusiasts.

Don't Do it
Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PASeptember 2, 2017
Don't do it. RAC allows for zero work life balance. Especially once you've become a store manager. There is a ludicrous "rule" that if you miss your numbers your day off is taken away. Therefore you will be opening and closing Monday to Saturday. Cycle repeats itself every time you slip up. VERY demanding job not for everyone.

Fast-paced environment with lots of hours, deliveries, and phone calls
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJune 14, 2017
Typically work twelve hours a day for five days a week, but do not get paid overtime; only get paid for the hours that you work, but you get paid fairly well. Saturdays are mandatory. The work environment is good as there aren't many employees to one store, so you get to know everyone you work with. Typical day starts with making phone calls to delinquent accounts early in the morning until noon then you leave to deliver any merchandise that customers came in to rent. The hardest part about the job was calling the delinquent accounts to try to get them to pay or return the merchandise; sometimes you come across some nasty individuals who do not like to be called. The most enjoyable was just the overall work environment.
Pros
Fair pay, good benefits, management
Cons
No overtime pay

This job was very stressful, but not due to the work that had to be done but it stressful because of the people i had to work with. They were very unorganized and dysfunctional.

Very interesting place to work.
Sales Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAMarch 2, 2017
It is a good paying job if you stick around and make sure to learn from the right people. The job itself can get a little tiring with the long hours and sometimes stress depending on your numbers compared to company standard. If your store is doing good and making profit there is nothing to worry about.

not for everybody
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAFebruary 12, 2017
Is a job where you are mentally challenged, because you cannot make the job environment to affect your personal life, the workplace culture is a very fast pace one and you dont have chance to be bored.

Credit Manager (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJuly 11, 2016
Working at Rent A Center as a manager you are required to work 47 hours weekly. The hardest thing about the job the schedule. Your day starts at 9am and ends around 8pm. The things i enjoyed the most about the job were my loyal customers, Helping others finance items for their household, Picking that set that they love and making it affordable. My co workers were amazing, very respectful and obedient. The management is firm but friendly and understanding.
Pros
standard holiday pay
Cons
no room for advancement

Hard work with no play
Assistant Manager of Sales (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PADecember 7, 2015
A typical day at Rent-A-Center started at 8:30 AM and ended 7:30 at night. Mandatory 50 hours per week. Being the assistant sales manager insured minimal dead lines everyday. The location required 30 contracted sales each week. With only five employees to a store, job descriptions blended together, everyone did a little of everything. Helped with bill collections, deliveries, plan-o-grams, unloading freight, etc..
Pros
Competitive Compensation, friendly working environment.
