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 without a lunch break. I’ve been told at the end of my shifts to clock out, wait 30 minutes then clock back in - and out once again to satisfy company policy.
I’ve witnessed Managers who have deceived customers by telling them that merchandise has only had a single owner when in truth it has had multiple ones. Returned items are very seldom cleaned, making it a health issue for future customers.
Another downside of working here is the promises they made but never kept. I pushed myself daily to reach sales goals every week however, not once have they made me feel appreciated. There is a lot of favoritism, who gets what and who gets promoted.
