This company really is not in the people business.

Current Employee - Manager Trainee in Lawton, OK

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

Pros

Weekly Pay check. No shortage of hours to work.

Cons

Long hours. Constantly calling customers two-three times a day for late payments. If the customer explains a circumstance, there is rarely any flexibility unless your are a GM or Regional Manager. Even when they grant a customer a circumstance or annotate a problem with their equipment, they rarely take care of the customer and still want us to bother customers who feel that they are being ignored. Corporate policies versus what really happens in the store is very far apart. Manager Trainees also do not manage anything. The title is very misleading.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ensure that each individual store is adhering to the vision of the company, and not running rogue as a bunch of hooligans making threats to customers who don't pay.

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

    Pros

    The base pay was horrible for the area however if in the rare case you hit all of your bonuses you have potential to make decent pay.

    Enjoyed working with the other employees and management, laid back and easy to work for.

    Cons

    13 hour days (8am - 9pm)
    People are nasty, be ready to get elbow deep in bedbugs, cockroaches, and to climb around in houses that simply need to be burnt down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Base pay is not comparable to local businesses. Also, there comes a time where merchandise should be let go. Understandably this costs money but it really is not worth it in some cases. Also, give the accounts department the ability to do their job and hit their metrics, sometimes a generous GM will be the main cause for the collections department to not hit their bonuses.
