I’ve been with RAC for a number of years and have yet to see promotions based on experience and leadership skills. It seems that employees who show a working knowledge of our company are passed over for those who are less qualified. My experience is that promotions are given based on favoritism which can diminish morale in the workforce.
Time and again I’ve witnessed valuable employees just quit because they’ve felt effort they’ve put in to hit sales goals went unappreciated. Everyone is trying to climb the ladder of success but it seems dependent on how ‘popular’ you are instead of how much hard work and long hours you put in. If this keeps up I’m sure that many more will follow.
