    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Corporate is wonderful about listening to your ideas and helping you with problems that you are having. Gives support and ideas for you to try which will help you succeed.
    Corporate gives you free reign on how to promote your store, Franchise does not.

    Cons

    Franchise stores have Aarons rules and then there is their rules. Franchise stores mostly go by what Aarons wants but then again they have their own way of doing things as well. We were never on the same page as everyone else. Always behind in being notified of changes, then when down to the crunch, franchise principal and Regional Manager wanted it done yesterdeay.
    Aarons Corp stores work with you on problem employees, numbers, profit and loss to where a franchise store does not.
    I worked for a franchise and will never do again.
    Hours were crazy with no time for family or personal life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take a good hard look at some of the franchise stores out there. Dig deep into how they are treating their employees and what they stand for. Your just a number to them, not a long term employee. I would still be there if I had the opportunity to fire the ones that were not performing their jobs, instead i got fired for not producing numbers as requested. Also, check your franchise stores for knowledge on the FMLA law. The one i worked for had no idea what, when or even how FMLA worked.
