Thread regarding Rent-A-Center Inc. layoffs

All DM should be let go so we can pay the people who actually do the work a decent wage.

DMs really contribute nothing to the success to any store they just email numbers up and send texts out stressing credit and salesstores can have an automated line for that. Store Managers are the core of the store in the field doing the work. DMs salaries are a waste honowhat can they do that a store can’t??

The RDs are the problem.

1> they're even more expensive

2> they apparently have nothing to do but micromanage an entire region.

let's go with about 10 of them, and then keep the DMs where they are, and see where that starts.

honestly if we weren't in the "common core" age in schools, maybe companies could find capable people to do the work, that don't need to be babysat, can be given a task and complete it. RAC isn't the only place suffering from what is an educational problem.

I am not with the company so I can give an honest perspective. The locations would not operate well without layers of management. The shrink would be through the roof, customers would not be serviced properly and there would constant infighting within the locations. If you think upper management can't manage, you haven't work with very good DM's. Most associates are not capable of managing, driving metrics, being consistent , having no favorites and staying within labor laws. The locations would have liabilities you just could not imagine. The perceived talent pool and skill sets is most people's ego's talking and not a real understanding of what they don't know. Any business that has tried to do away with those layers have failed miserably.
