    I have been working at Aaron's

    Pros

    My team is friendly and I love getting to know my customers and seeing them each month. The company is closed Sundays, and most all store managers and above are from internal promotions, so there is a lot of opportunity to learn and grow with the business!

    Cons

    None that I can think of at this time.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Baltimore, MD
    Anonymous Employee in Baltimore, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Aaron's in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    3 weeks after I applied, I was contacted by a guy to schedule an interview from a different store than I applied to. My thought was that this just happened to be the store where interviews took place - nope it was for that store (45 minutes farther away) . Interview was set for 3 days away, at 11:00am (store opened at 10am). I arrived at 10:50 to ensure I was on-time. The guy I was to meet was not in the store when I arrived, so I happily waited. By 11:05, I was growing curious as to where he was, 11:10am, no sign. 11:15am, no sign - but the employee there said "he should be right back - I told him you were here when you walked in", 11:20am he walked in and said he would need a few minutes to get situated. 11:35am, finally ready to start (I was pretty angry at the unprofessionalism by this point and no longer wanted to work there, but I stayed to see if he could change my mind). Questions were fairly basic and straightforward interview questions, "tell me why you want to work here, what are your strengths for this position, what type of experience do you have in this field, etc, etc."

    Interview Questions
    • There wasnt much unexpected in the form of questions, but more-so in the job details and responsibilities. The position of store manager, somehow quickly developed into an almost purely outside sales position. "I'm looking for someone who can canvas the neighborhood and generate rapport with the surrounding neighborhoods and leave door hangers, etc."   View Answer
