    I worked at SEI/Aaron's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company will give anyone a chance that conveys sincere quality , has integrity, and is a responsible person. Then they will alow you to directly help the company's economic engine by executing good percent collected and driving output to create magical financial results for the company. Outstanding leadership, that talks the talk and walks the walk. President of the company Dave "I love Boston sports and anything related to golf" Edward's will put down his planner down and help download a fc truck. The culture of SEI is simple, FLOW agreements better than anyone in the world, and good things will happen.

    Cons

    If you can't work long hours for the driving of the economic engine than viewed as a con.Real simple some of us rto professionals have been around managing locations for decades. They must be viewed as operators not managers. Managers need to be personally manged operators do not.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the difference between an operator and a manager. That's where your business needs a wake up call. After 20 years of working in the rent to own industry, thanks to all at SEI for absolutely being best rto organization that I've had the luxury of being a part of.
