I have been working at Aaron's full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Great employees in most areas
- Name brand products
- Getting to help decent, hardworking people (not all are decent OR hardworking)
- Closed every Sunday and some major holidays

Cons

- Management, management, management
- Customers can become ignorant even when you're trying to help
- Little to no work/life balance (50+ hours per week, not uncommon to work 10-12 hours every day)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize that the world is changing and employees expect more out of a company than just a paycheck these days. Happy employees need balance and the environment on the store level doesn't allow for much of that...

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

    Pros

    40 hours a week in this horrible economy

    Cons

    Huge buddy system (more like quid pro quo), no accountability, no integrity, petty and back stabbing. In 2 years I have had 5 death threats from customers and countless instances of them attempting physical force, saying they're going to follow me home after work and kill me, etc. Management's response? "You need to understand that you're not the only bill collector trying to get money from them." I got a concealed carry permit because of this job. Not a very nice feeling knowing you could be attacked at any time for "poverty level" wages or any amount of wages, for that matter. Unless you're a police officer or in the military.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward the people who have proven their value through performance, not the one you like the best. Many times those people are spending so much time making you like them, they don't have time to perform their duties.

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

    Pros

    The company offered reasonably priced health insurance only positive thing I can say about the company.

    Cons

    Was injured on the job and was screwed and harassed by their insurance company. Their insurance company (Farmers) for those who care literally resorted to fraud to try and deny a legitimate claim.They also illegally withheld my pay for missed time for almost 90 days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire management that actually has a clue. The manager I had could not even respond within 48 hours who he workers compensation insurance company was.
