I have been working at Aaron's full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Semi-regular schedule, paid holidays off, and benefits. Raises are available, as is moving up in the company if you wish. Fun people to work with. It greatly depends on how your GM runs the store, if you will enjoy your job. Mine is pretty good.

Cons

Cleaning returned merchandise! Yuck! Some customers are not pleasant, but you will have that in customer service.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your GM's. Some policies are redundant, they waste employees' time that could be better spent doing something else.

    It's a company in transition from private ownership to more of a corporate culture

    I worked at Aaron's full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I had some measure of autonomy for a corporate job. They try to get you to do everything a certain way but do give you some measure of freedom to do what works for you as long as your numbers are in line with company standards

    Cons

    Pay for non-GM positions is horrible. Average around 30K for an accounts manager or sales manager position which are basically assistant managers. The bonus structure which was liberal and made working there somewhat worthwhile has changed making it much more difficult to make over the $10-$12 hourly they want to pay you. Very little upward mobility at the GM or multi unit manager levels so getting to the 50k or beyond level is very difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people better or open more stores creating more opportunities for workers who have long been loyal but are not getting paid near what they are worth. Accounts department personnel especially have a tough, stress-filled job and do not currently get paid commensurate with the level of stress they deal with on a daily basis. Up the ante or scale back the company goals to hit bonuses.
