    Pros

    Benefits are ok. Salary is good, and if your lucky enough to be in a big store, the salary is outstanding. Bonus structure is good and attainable.

    Cons

    Hours can be long. Collections can be stressful. If you are surrounded by a good team, it's really not that hard.

    Long hours - literally open to close for sales team

    Pros

    Paid Holidays, Sundays off. Vacation and personal time are awesome

    Cons

    The hours are ALL day long from morning until night. It's very hard to work here if you have a family.

    Advice to Management

    Take your days off and use your personal time

    Pros

    Competitive environment, steady paycheck, teamwork, bonus opportunities, your success dictates your position in the company.

    Cons

    Favoritism, way too many hours, no life away from work, often heavy lifting not good for your back. All of these things mainly a business issue not a knock on the company. Big company some people are great some arent.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure managers are taking their days off and the consistent producers of numbers are getting promoted.


  9. An ok job Customer service representative

    I worked at Aaron's full-time

    Pros

    if you like to start at 10 am and finish at sometimes 7:30 or 8:30 then this job is for you. it can be boring all day if no one comes in. The general manager used to let the account manager do whatever he wanted and let the sales manager and myself do all the work. My hat off to the sales manager.

    Cons

    all of the above Plus the account manager would stick his nose in things he shouldn't have had. He would lie to customers about merchandise just to get sales for the day and then the next day we would have negative numbers. He did things like used the company car to eat out or wouldn't come back for over an hour and then would say he didn't go to his home when we knew he had. There is a problem with management.

    Advice to Management

    Set a stable schedule. Just because someone is a manager doesn't mean they can do anything they want.

    Pros

    GM and above the salary is ok

    Cons

    GMs will work 70 hours a week with no work life balance. BE CAREFUL just because your RM tells you to do a taskin doesn't mean he will not "counsel" you for the task afterwards. If he gets it to hot water. (This is not an isolated issue, I have seen this over 4 regions).

    Advice to Management

    Reimer how it REALLY works in the stores and either fix the problems correctly so they can work in a true oporations stand point, or have a little understanding so that the task can be completed with integrity (integrity is one of your core values).
