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

Pros

It has great opportunity for the person that is willing to work hard and be disciplined. A lot depends on the attitude and skill of the general manager (store manager)

Cons

My regional manager excessively micromanaged my GM, which made my GM micromanage the employees. The proved to demoralizing. No empowerment. Thus high turnover. So far, no has lasted more than one year under the RM and GM. They cannot handle the constant negative feedback. The corporate office provides computer based training but the RM and GM do not allow employees to complete them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

RM and GM needs more management training. They need to allow the employees to be fully trained according to the company's standards. The employee should be empowered to do their work with incessant monitoring (cameras everywhere) and negative feedback.

    I worked at Aaron's full-time

    Pros

    Company had a moral compass...at one time. If in Atlanta then the occasional tickets to the WNBA are "priceless".

    Cons

    Most companies hire, promote, and define raises based on work ethic and results...but at Aaron's it is not about that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about creating a NO RETALIATION policy.... When will you learn that creating mindless zombies working in your stores will never produce the same store sales you desire...
