Current Employee - Manager in Smithfield, NC

I have been working at Aaron's full-time

Pros

Many ways to help a customer get to ownership
Do a lot of promotion from within
Can make extra money if you just do your job
Sundays plus one week day off
great benefits such as paid holidays and a weeks paid vacation after 6 months

Cons

They say they want results by doing things according to policies but are quick to have you do otherwise if its not working in their favor.
Can be mentally draining calling the same people over and over and trying to help the customer while they seem to be giving you the run around
If management has been in place for a while they become lazy and take things personally

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want improved profits hire leaders who know how to talk to people and that strive for more than just a bigger bonus.
If you're doing your job right there will be no need for rushing around or worse yet brown nosing when upper management comes in.

    More times than not Aaron's fails to focus on employee retention and maintaining an environment that is not hostile to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers must strive to manage employees in a manner that creates a "buy in" . Increased morale will result in positive performance.
