Good opportunity for the right person, but be prepared to work

Customer Accounts Manager (Former Employee)
Tampa, FL

I worked at Aaron's

ProsInexpensive health benefits after 60 days
Never short on hours
Generally great staff to work with
Sunday's off
Always work to be done so never standing around bored
Able to be out in the field and out of the store for part of most days
Quickly promoted if you do well and know the right people
A week of paid vacation after 6 months
Very high store GM salary
Taught how to run store (including P & L's) as if it's your own business at GM level
Stable company that pays weekly

ConsLong, long retail hours - be prepared to come in before 8 am and leave after 930 pm for 45-50 hours a week
Micromanaged in all departments
Made to feel guilty by management if you need to use the bathroom, need a sick day or any other approved time off since they are always short staffed
Many stores run with minimum amount of help making job stressful
Lunches can be an afterthought sometimes occurring after 4 pm
Low starting pay
Regional management rules by fear. As a GM you are threatened with your job daily via email.
Many times required to use personal vehicle to make collection visits

Advice to Senior ManagementTheir business model is profitable so my advice doesn't matter much. Splitting the day into 2 nine hour overlapping shifts would help retain your better employees and improve work-life balance.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
