I have been working at Aaron's full-time for more than a 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 for more than a 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.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
