Topics regarding layoffs at Rent-A-Center Inc.

part time?

After we went to six months same as cash, we got a bump but now things are slowing down. Do you think corporate would go back to using part-time? Some of us are worried how things (hours, etc.) could change if this keeps going.

DMs are paid way to much and do way to little!!

Ok so everyone needs a form of management but for DMS to have 9-10 stores that they really do not contribute true success to instead just an email or text to pressure stores to produce numbers that were obtainable a few years ago seems like a waste... —  read more

Going out of business and layoffs

Is it likely that Rent a Center is going to be bankrupt and going out of business any time soon. If that happens do employees get paid severance and unemployment as in that case there would be nobody to cut checks and help employees. I mean, maybe... —  read more

Rent a Center laid off the CTO and the VP yesterday and 60 more IT employees today . That company and management is a piece of junk. Inexperienced management. The only way to deal with the crisis is laying of existing employees rather than focus on... —  read more

Can't get more with less

Why does management at Rent-A-Center think they can run the company the same way they did twenty years ago? We desperately need to evolve, not stay stuck in the "good-old-days" that weren't always that good, either. One thing they can't seem to... —  read more

Integrity is everything

I’ve been with Rent-A-Center for a little over a year. It’s all I could handle. Store managers and above show no concern for their employees. All they care about are the numbers. To them, sales equals bonuses. I’ve been forced to work my entire shift... —  read more

Is this why?

Someone I know works for this place & tells me a member of upper management says it’s ok to let the store managers do nothing while the store assistants practically run the store. This might be one of the problems. You must have managers who expect... —  read more

No promotions based on skill

IT Mostly Outsourced, Execs Mostly Super Rich

We outsourced a majority of IT. This company is being packaged up for a buyout so the CEO and other execs can cash out and ride off into the sunset. It's funny how they just changed the 2nd floor cubes of the IT department (that was just let go) to... —  read more

This is why the company is going upside down
