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.

I want to know what executives are planning here in Plano.

Just relax, focus on work, focus on delivering things, making things happen and you will be safe from layoffs anywhere, especially here in Plano.
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
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

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

RAC headquarters will be laying off 30% of their IT staff starting mid-week. Truly a sad situation
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

It seems everyday that a handful of new people are no longer with the company. I hope these people are jumping ship, but I doubt it.
If you knew me, you would know I was telling it the way it is (was). Axed recently. FSC. From being on the inside, I can't tell you whether the company will be sold. Nothing is for sure. I don't care. What I do know, is that if anyone does purchase... — read more
