Cons: communication, environemnt, people
This job was confuasing in what they would tell you and train you about, and then change the story the next day. There was alot of pressure to perform and to catch up to people. The communication was terrible

Work Life and Personal Life is not balanced.
Credit Department Manager (Former Employee), Bakersfield, CAAugust 24, 2014
The day to day basis of the job is not hard but the problem is the pressure you start receiving when numbers cant be hit. It does feel like a family because you have to work from 47-50 hours per week on a weekly basis. The hardest part is the long hours and the people you deal with. The RTO deals with some people that needs items that are of necessity – more... and they end up not being able to pay and you can't get your items back because they are on government assistance. It is a good stepping stone but not to form a career. – less

Rent a Center
Customer Account Representative (Former Employee), Murray, KYAugust 22, 2014
Pros: paid weekly, benefits
Cons: cut breaks, lifting
I would usually come into work, make a call through of everyone who was past due and try to get some commitments. After making calls, we would all focus on sales and trying to make the store look better. Thinking of ways to get people in was the best part because our ideas were always kind of fun. The only hard part about the job was lifting because – more... I am not very big for my age. I enjoyed my time with my employees though, they always made me laugh. – less

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.

Hate them.
Customer Account Representative (Former Employee), Woonsocket, RIAugust 14, 2014
Cons: company of con-men
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.
