Manager Trainee Interview

Manager Trainee

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Aaron's.

Interview Details – If your application successfully passes a Taleo screening and you are called for an interview, you will meet with the Store General Manager (typically the store you will be working) and the regional manager. The company requires two separate interviews.

If you are interviewing for a position with this company you are not in a good position; not skill intensive, or required to have college education.

Interview Question – Do you enjoy working long hours for little pay harassing customers for payments and dealing with ungrateful management?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – zero negation, 12$ an hour is the highest offer that can be made regardless of what has been said. Pay increases are subject to aggregate store performance and management which is rarely successfully passed.
