Tough juggling act

Manager (Current Employee)
Smithfield, NC

ProsMany 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

ConsThey 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 Senior ManagementIf 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Customer Accounts Manager (Former Employee)
    Springfield, MO

    I worked at Aaron's full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Aaron's provides benefits, which is great. They also provide a… Cons: You will never get a lunch hour.
