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

    Pros

    Aaron's really does have a lot going for it. The company overall has a number of benefits and career opportunities, if you have access to the right people. The compensation is good. There are plenty of bonus/incentives offered, but they are mostly to the sales/accounts departments. Got to meet some great people and see some interesting locations. There are stores all over the place and you have the ability to move almost anywhere and still work for the company.

    Cons

    As with a number of large companies that rely on stores all over the place, you can expect various styles of management, infighting, backstabbing, etc. Some stores seemed like tight-knit families, while others were filled with paycheck players and enemies. As the stores run a limited number of employees, it is hard to get time off. Bonuses are based on customer account metrics and depending on your store area, can be hard to maintain long enough to get the bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more bonus opportunities to the delivery team. While the accounts and sales teams make the money for the store, its the delivery team that has the most impact with the customer. Setup a program to make work/life balance easier for team members. A parent shouldn't have to miss out on child activities or other important matters because the store does not have enough employees to cover the workers shift. This is especially true for the delivery team.
