Why are investors willing to pay a premium for upbd? Who are these masterminds of finance with so much money? You have to take a hard look to find out. Revenue declines double digits year after year, for multiple years... Hmmmm, go figure. Well great... — read more
RAC name change and stock ticker?
Why do you think RAC changed the ticker along with the name of the Company? Are they hiding something? Google results? Poor performance or good performance?
Earnings report? Red all over the place!
How will these earnings be explained away, who will be the fall person this time?
Which heads gonna roll?
The axe is coming...
Rent-A-Center Layoffs 2023
Make a prediction and tell us what you think about Rent-A-Center layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Ready for the sling-fest
Why go to rac when you can buy at 65" tv at walley world for 260 bucks? The only sales they will get this week will be a bunch of skips. How many will be real, how many DMs and RDs will be cheating.
Why would u work there?
It's time for a change
Time to franchise all the stores and get rid of the horrible upper mgmnt Rent-A-Center needs a major overhaul and this is a great place to start. What did this leadership do for this company other than destroying it completely? I can't think of one... — read more
Recent moves are pointing to Q1 changes. Any insights?

Things that Make you Question this Job
Not to move too off topic but for light fun, what are some crazy stories or incidents that made you question this job in general & make you say what am I doing here?
All those unrealistic goals...
They try in vain to put the blame on us. It is more or less clear to everyone that they are imposing very unrealistic expectations. I don't want to feel guilty that an unrealistic goal was not achieved. I wonder if they actually want us to leave on... — read more
People leaving very quickly
I've been here too long. I'm literally stuck here. I hope that I will receive a new offer soon. On the other hand, newbies are staying shorter and shorter. Have you noticed that too? Recently, one person left after only couple of weeks here. This... — read more
The most toxic place I've ever worked
Everything is horrible. No redeeming qualities whatsoever.
Will rcii revise earnings?
The question is will rcii tell the truth about the state of their business or hide it from investors. Look for a spin, excuse or vague statements from the ceo. I read a post from an investor that was surprised by the stock drop for rcii and was... — read more
Changes this company needs
Let's have a sincere discussion about this - how would you change this place?
I thought RAC was recession proof? The 4th of July is coming up and credit is sky high AND it falls on a Monday. Start shopping around for a new buyer to save rac...
How will the Company deal with the credit crisis? Turn a blind eye or fix the problem. I am very happy not to be working at rac!
RAC is circling the drain
Why more people are not leaving is beyond me.
RAC coworkers need to prep for credit to go sky high, higher than it is now! The consumer will be looking to have fun and not pay bills. Your on the no pay list!
If it can become worse, it will become worse
Despite everything, it was hard for me to give notice because I used to love working here and I hoped that some positive changes would happen. There are still some great people here and I hope that they will soon be able to find better options... — read more
Earnings sound like b.s. to me...
A bunch of excuse, stimulus money, supply chain, etc. What does it mean when the ceo says "we believe that"? Good luck rcii investors!
Out of control delinquency
I hear credit numbers are out of control! Hmm, take a look at those audit trails on Monday so can can see what your DMs and RDs are up too.
Layoffs and outsourcing at corporate
Layoffs this past week at corporate and they outsourced two depts there. Why isn’t leadership held accountable for their bad business decisions?
Wow rac is on the ropes
All those investors on the msg boards are asking how did this happen? The answers are on this site, read the posts. Rac is done, acima won't save them. Do your research before you invest in rac and i dont mean read the earnings reports and that... — read more
Rent-A-Center Layoffs 2022
Is this going to be an interesting year as it relates to Rent-A-Center layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Now's the time to leave
Take one of the many seasonal jobs, prove yourself to be a good employee, get an offer to stay, profit.
Delinquency Numbers are FALSE
Take a look into any store, Check their extensions. All stores are told to use extensions to show a 3.5 for Friday and their 6.9 for Saturday. Some stores and districts are running 10% or more in extensions. Why do you think the percent collected is... — read more
Any info on cuts to share? I am worried because the situation is very tense.
The worst job I've ever had!!!!!!!
I admire the people who have stayed here for a few years. After the first month here, I started thinking about getting a new job. The expectations that were set were totally disproportionate to the pay and benefits I was getting in return. I gave... — read more
Have things changed?
This is my first time posting since I quit almost a year ago. I’m curious to see if anything has changed (at least for the better) or if things are basically the same with management not appreciating the work that was done, the long grueling hours... — read more
Corporate is opening back again!
Insane how they are opening the corporate office even though covid cases are not getting better. So dumb. Hope those decision makers get covid.
Horrible treatment of employees
In my location the entire team is treated very badly. We are constantly being criticized on every little thing and occasionally bullied. I feel like we aren’t being appreciated, we’re not even given a simple ‘thank you’ (which isn’t much to ask... — read more
Is this a good company?
I want to apply to a few companies - this being one of them. I accidentally discovered this website when I tried to see how often RAC does layoffs. I am surprised because I have heard nothing in the news and this board doesn't seem too busy. Is it... — read more
Getting laid off from this place would be a blessing!
If I could leave this place with a severance, I'd jump at the opportunity. I can't emphasize enough how much this has turned from a relatively normal workplace into a toxic cesspool of nepotism and incompetence. Even simply doing your job can be a... — read more
