    Pros

    Great store work environment and generally good people to work with. Good pay for a good effort.

    Cons

    Cheat customers and make sales reports say whatever they need them to say in order to satisfy upper management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more customer driven instead of money driven. Loyal customers spend more than on customer that is forced to overpay!

    Former Employee - Sales Manager in Jacksonville, FL

    I worked at Aaron's full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The job is easy enough. The company promotes from within. There are regular opportunities for overtime. The company gives a great benefits package. You get every Sunday off. Paid holidays. Decent employee discount.

    Cons

    The management trainee program is a joke. You bust your butt to get a promotion only to be told that all manager positions are lateral movements. Which means there will be no pay increase until you reach the General Manager position. Your average working day is 12 hour shift which leaves no time for school or family. The company could care less about the quality of merchandise they are grossly overcharging customers for. Outdated marketing tools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a better training program. Have the stores procedures be more uniform. Better overall organization. More responsibilities should always come with increased pay.
