I have been working at Aaron's full-time (more than an year)

Pros

I was honestly a little bit hesitant about working in the rent to own industry before I started, but the opportunity sounded great so I went for it. Two years later, I can't imagine being anywhere else. I work regularly with people who sincerely care about their work. It is motivating to work with people who bring their best every day--in fact; it propels me to push harder! There is a lot of change within the organization, and it’s thrilling to participate in the future success of Aaron's. I had no idea the tremendous impact Aaron's makes on the communities we serve-- and was humbled to be a part of the service aspect of our business recently.

Cons

I think there is some opportunity with benefits. We saw a significant improvement in 2013 benefits and are always searching to be competitive in the market. I look forward to what's to come!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I am incredibly grateful to work for a leadership team that is approachable and sincerely cares about its associates as Aaron’s does. Personally, I’ve never felt more supported by my boss and by my senior leadership team. It’s clear my success is their priority!

    I have been working at Aaron's full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to actually help people and fulfill needs. My customers and co-workers now and in the past have generally been some of the best people I have known. Typically off two days a week, but also receive 5 paid holidays, 5 sick days, 10 vacation days, 401K match program up to 4% immediately vested, supplemented insurance, opportunity for advancement, and employee discounts. Also, a very dependable employer even in this tough economy.

    Cons

    Tough schedule for maintaining work/ life balance. I typically work 8am to 8pm five days a week as a salaried store manager (not that bad for retail), but most employees work 45 hours per week. It is a demanding job and you will be a financial advisor, mover, salesperson, repair technician, collector, Santa Claus, grinch, janitor, and more all rolled into one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The joy of this job depends solely on your supervisor. I'm flexible as a manager and my employees are less stressed, and my regional manager is more flexible which keeps me less stressed, but some Stores/ Regions are unbearable for no reason other than poor management. Also, we are headed in the right direction but a long way to go on diversity- still a good ol' boy system.

    I have been working at Aaron's full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Endless opportunity for growth and advancement in the company. True leadership is taught here. Career advancement based on performance and desire to win, NOT tenure and how many years you attended college.

    Cons

    Like with any challenging career, STRESS. Though if you find ways to deal with it and not bring it home to your family "Leave work at work" "Home at home" it is a CON that can and will be overcome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep Growing !
