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 them, they will be in for a rude awakening with cover ups, lies, manipulation, mismanagement, possibly fraud. But more than anything, a complete disrespect for anyone, anyone who works there. You cannot run a business by treating your employees like dirt. The company isn't worth what it's trading for now. As Aaron's used to say, "Do the Math." Their hidden liabilities, outdated processes, and pure evilness will do them in. If I was a potential buyer, I simply would let them die on the vine. You'll get their customers and best employees anyway. Do a little research on where some of these "leaders" came from and what rental company, and you'd be lucky to get anything for your stock. And my word for the employees there, I loved you all, especially the field. But Rent-A-Center thinks you are a number, and we know they don't manage their numbers very well.

My store was profitable and it was sold while other stores in the region are down thousands on the year and stores with less than 300 accounts and no profit remain open. This horrible company has no rhyme or reason to anything.
Sorry my RTO / ANOW friend. S---s I know... The smaller mom and pops are hiring.
Why? Did you just get let go? Or did they close the store?
6 years with Anow as store manager, perform to win, 10 years of business ownership, 20 yrs business mgr.
Anyone hiring? This ship is about to sink?
I say forget working for RTO all together. Best thing for me was quitting and awfully regret I hadn’t done so sooner.
isn’t that the point cuz if aaron’s is so much better wont all the good RAC employees just go work there? Our whole district is bleeding all the good people like people that trained me the right way and they are all headed to Aaron’s. Not sure why they closed
some profitable stores in our region. it seems
... Well that explains why they kept Aaron’s employees. Even from stores that Aaron’s has closed, better believe those managers are now at RAC. RAC’s finest (traitors to themselves). As such.
