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?
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
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
Everything is horrible. No redeeming qualities whatsoever.
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
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!
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!
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
A bunch of excuse, stimulus money, supply chain, etc. What does it mean when the ceo says "we believe that"? Good luck rcii investors!
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 this past week at corporate and they outsourced two depts there. Why isn’t leadership held accountable for their bad business decisions?
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
Is this going to be an interesting year as it relates to Rent-A-Center layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Take one of the many seasonal jobs, prove yourself to be a good employee, get an offer to stay, profit.
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.
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
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
Insane how they are opening the corporate office even though covid cases are not getting better. So dumb. Hope those decision makers get covid.
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
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
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
How come there are no new discussions on this site? Did RAC corporate threaten action against coworkers who post comments?
They haven't opened up the FSC for all coworkers to return, and someone already infected other coworkers at the FSC. Such a smart idea to say they are opening up the FSC again Please be advised that today we became aware that a few people in the... — read more
Why is it that all the RDs and Dms got to stay home where its safe but we are essential and need to stay in our stores? Here is a better one, why are "balancing " your business by renting and collecting and it is not good enough? Stay tuned! I am... — read more
I don’t understand why the company continues to say they are essential during this time as of April 3 it was announced that all home furnishing stores and furniture stores to close and yet they keep saying they will still be open and still have face... — read more
I have been with the company for little over 8 years and have had ups and downs but they have always treated me fairly and supported me during my surgery’s so I couldn’t have asked for a better company... And I will work till I can’t anymore to... — read more
I can say it is never a good time to panic, no matter how bad the circumstances are, but if there was ever a time to be greatly concerned about the situation at rac, that time is now. Let’s face it, the people that form the majority of our customer... — read more
I don’t want to spread negative thoughts at this time, but to tell you the truth, I really don’t see any way RAC can survive this economic environment. I mean let’s be realistic, much bigger and much more organized companies are crumbling within the... — read more
People do not have money nowadays. My sister and her husband were laid off last week. He's an assistant manager (or he was) at a small hotel and she was working scheduling for a large restaurant chain. Many families strugle like this. They have two... — read more
A 5 year delivery driver for the company here! Let me tell you something no regard for are health and safety from this deadly virus! Until just 2 days ago we finally closed are doors and stopped deliveries which I have continued to do! But... — read more
If you would drop prices, you would sell more. Highest rental company out there. If you're busy, maybe no layoffs.
