Truth about Aaron's, Great Lakes

Customer Accounts Manager Plus (Former Employee) Chicago Heights, IL

ProsThere isn't a great reason. They tell you that there is a "cap" on pay. They give you raises of 10 cents. They have ridiculous goals, and even in the summer, they expect you to conquer skips, charge offs, or whatever else. You only get commission if you hit your new customer goal, instead of total sales. The VP of Great Lakes has no heart, and like any other retail gig, he has no idea about talent. I went to the GM Boot Camp, which is an amazing training tool, yet the RM in Chicago, doesn't enforce any of it.

ConsThe GM's have their hands tied about staffing, compensation, and are just bad at training. The GM at 1140 and 1147 know what they are doing, but the rest of that good old boy network is a joke.
Do the math, they say.
Do not work here. It is straight up clown college.

Advice to Senior ManagementReplace the VP, Chicago RM. Give proper cost of living wages.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
